You can either set the label or the menuHistory
property.
##
set the label of button "MyOptionMenu" to "Choice 1"
set the menuHistory of button "MyOptionMenu" to 1
##
When you set the label, no "menuPick" message is sent;
however, if you use the menuHistory, then your option
menu will receive a "menuPick" message.
If you want to use the menuHistory property, but avoid
the "menuPick" message, you can always wrap it in a
lock/unlock messages pair.
##
lock messages
set the menuHistory of button "MyOptionMenu" to 1
unlock messages
