Is it possible to create a menu under a menu item.  Just like netscape Communicator has File - New (with an arrow) and underneath new, there are 5 menu items.

If this is possible to do in Delphi 3 and 4, please let me know how.
Thanks

Hi,
I think you want to create menues at runtime- Other wise just put a TMainMenu component on form and dbl click on it and write it on design time- So open your delphi help search for TMenuItem and see example 2

In the Menu Designer you just rightclick to create a Submenu.

If you mean at designtime and you have delphi 3(I don't know anything else):
1.put a menu on form and enter the menu editor(dblclick).
2.select an item which you want to have a cascadind menu.
3.press [CTRL]+[->].

Errh. Isn't that just a shortcut? You're telling him to do exactly as I told in my comment. The only difference is to use a shortcut instead of rightclicking and then selecting Submenu.
