What I do in these situations is store the object reference as a custom
property of the popup button before I display it.

on mouseDown
    set the uHeaderControl of button "Popup" to the dgHeaderControl of the
    popup button "Popup"
end mouseDown

Then in the menuPick handler you have access to the object.

on menuPick pChosen
    switch pChosen
        case "something"
            put the uHeaderControl of me into theHeaderControl
end menuPick
