Now that I created the PopUpMenu Control using NewControl(), how do I get the results of a mouseDown in the popUpMenu? I tried this but doesn't seem to work, value doesn't change

if(hitControlHdl == gWindowPeek->popUpControl) {
                      if(dummy = TrackControl(hitControlHdl,myPoint, nil)) {
                            beep;
                            value = GetControlValue((ControlHandle)gWindowPeek->popUpControl);                                  
                      }
                }

It does get as far as beeping, right? If not then "myPoint" is probably not the same point you passed to FindControl(), which it should be.

But if it is beeping, and you saw the menu item flash appropriately, hmmmm, that really ought to work. About the only reason it wouldn't is that the Control Manager is confused about how many items are in the menu. Try setting

SetControlMaximum(gWindowPeek->popUpControl, CountMItems(itsMenu));

right after creating the control -- AND after any change you make to the contents of the menu while it's part of the control, because the Control Manager does NOT automatically know about any change to the menu.

Hope that helps.

SetControlMaximum() did the trick.

Thanks Again
