: Is there any (simple) way do detect the selection of a heirarchical menu as
: opposed to the selection of one of the items that it contains? I notoced
: that there is nothing equivalent to menu-item-action for menus.
: P.S. I know that this is not exactly kosher interface behavior, but in this
: case I think that it makes sense...
The standard trick is to put the hierarchical menu as also the first
of the items of its selection.
For example, here 'Cats' is pulled down:
[ Dogs -> ]
[ Cats ->[ Cats ]
[ Pigs ->[ Cats with hats ]
[ Cats with mats ]
