I am still having an unusual problem with setting the value of three
menu option buttons. In the preOpenStack, I have a script which sets
the value of three menu option buttons, optionMenu (system date for
the year), optionMenu2 (system date for the month) and optionMenu3
(system date for the day) when the first screen is presented to the
I have three other option menu buttons, optionMenu4 (the numerical
year that the user chooses), optionMenu5 (the numerical month the
user chooses) and optionMenu6 (the numerical day the user chooses).
These are subtracted from the first three optionMenu buttons.

optionMenu5 and optionMenu6 and does not select the system date, that

negative numbers for year, which is the year entered and the month
I don't understand why the optionMenu, optionMenu2 and optionMenu3
are not "initialized" despite showing the system date as numerical
year, month and day. By the way I have another script that is

birth date that is handled by sending a mouseUp message to another
button that takes the numbers from the option menus and does the
Here is the preOpenStack script:
put the short date into tDate
convert tDate from short date to dateItems
select line lineOffset(item 1 of tDate, btn "optionmenu") of btn
set the menuhistory of btn "optionmenu2" to item 2 of tDate
set the menuhistory of btn "optionmenu3"to item 3 of tDate
The only times that the age is computed correctly is if the user
selects a diffferent date using the first three option menu buttons.
Any help that I can get would be greatly appreciated!
