I've got a program that needs a demo mode. I want to
be able to move the cursor around (I've got that part)
and open a menu and select an item all from within the
program's code. It doesn't even have to execute the menu
item as long as it looks like it selected it. I don't
want an extra or external program (camcorder, etc.) since
this is part of the requirements. Any help would be
appreciated.

It's not an external program:
Download Lloyd's Delphi Help File available from the Delphi Download page off the Delphi Technical Support page.

Search the help file for "SendKeys". Send an Alt Key Down, then
a Down Arrow Key etc...

You'll be able to send any key you want to open the menu item, and there are also some examples.
