Hi...quick question: How do I make a pop-up menu with one of the menu items bringing up another pop-up menu when it's clicked on. Those items always have a little right-pointing arrow indicating they have more items...you know what I mean?

Cheers

AzTec,
stick a popup menu component from standard bar
right click component and select menu designer
now click on 'caption' in object inspector and type something.
next back on menu designer right click either item you just gave a caption to or the one below and select 'create submenu' and give that a caption thats it repeat until happy with your popup menu

Excellent! Works great! In a related question Barry, how do get a little icon to show next to each item in a popup menu? I've seen programs that have it...maybe Delphi 3 cannot do it??

Popupmenus in delphi 3 can do it you need to use the API call

SetMenuItemBitmaps(
Menu,      // handle of menu
Position,      // menu item to receive new bitmaps
Flags,      // menu item flags
BitmapUnchecked,      // handle of unchecked bitmap
BitmapChecked      // handle of checked bitmap
);
