What do you mean?  "window menus for DOS"  Is this for a DOS program or a Windows program?

Look through the DOS graphics functions and find some functions to make lines. ( line() , lineto(), etc). using redraw techniues, you can draw a box with all your text, seperated by lines, (the menu) when the user clicks in a certain spot. loading the mouse, use the int86 command i think. (in dos), else making menus in dos is hard. i did it, and it doesn't work too well. id suggest staying in a windows/unix environ.

It is very  hard to do Menu in Windows Style, but you
can make Menu in Borland Style using TurboVision
