I'm pretty sure there's no way to do this directly/simply (i.e. just as
declarations in :MENU-BAR clause of the frame definition) after all, it's
not the motif standard. ;)
To do what you want to do basically you have to make your own menu-bar
pane. You can then position it whereever you want it. (You also need to
handle the command table yourself.)
E.g. use a clause like the following in your :PANES declaration:
(MENU-BAR (clim:make-pane 'clim:menu-bar
:text-style '(:fix :bold :large)
And then handle it as a regular pane in the appropriate :LAYOUTS clause.
In Allegro CLIM 2.0 you can use the pane abbreviation :MENU-BAR (as opposed
to :COMMAND-MENU which will get you old CLIM 1 style menus) rather than
having to explicitly create the pane eg
(old-style :command-menu ...)
(new-style :menu-bar ...)
either pane can appear anywhere in the layout.
