I've had good luck with borderless palette windows, not using the popup
command at all but simply opening them. I trap escapeKey to dismiss
them, and close them on suspendStack so clicking anywhere outside of
them dismisses them like a menu does.
I use these as flyout panes in the new Devolution 3 in development, and
they've been surprisingly satisfying as an alternative to popup stacks.
The old popup command was designed back in the days when all menus were
implemented as stacks, so they always dismiss as soon as anything is
But with these flyout panes I can have any type of controls I want, and
the pane stays up until I either use escape key or click anywhere
outside of it. If needed of course you could have a close button as
well to cover your bases.
