I am looking for an implimentation of walking/sliding menus similar
to that found on the Sun Tools, in the Xerox 1108 Lisp machine, and
in KEE. The kind of functionality that I am looking for is the
ability to expand options in a dw:menu-choose type block into
progressively more specific options by sliding the mouse blip
character to the right of the choice. On the Xerox and in KEE, menu
picks that have a ">" on the right of the field to indicate this.
This is pretty easy to implement. Define a :mouse-exit method for your
menu (say, momentary-menu) which figures out which item you were next
I would suggest that you extend the syntax of menu-items to take a brace
of additional items (one for each side!).
