putting a checkmark in a pop-up menu

Hi Slava,

If I need to do things like that, I create a popup menu button with menu items and an option menu button without menu items. I put a mouseDown handler into the option menu button, with the following command:

     popup btn id 1008 at the topleft of me

Obiously, you need to change the ID number. You can put a checkmark before a menu item of a popup button by adding !c before the menu item.

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
