Hi there

I have a problem with a menu bar. I have an entry with the following stucture

File
--> TEST
        -> SUBTEST1
        -> SUBTEST2

In the menu bar, Subtest1 and 2 show up correct (see picture 1). However, if I click on the "Test" symbol on the toolbar, Sub1 and 2 won't show up (see picture 2)

The propertys in the toolbar tab of TEST are:

ToolbarItemText=TEST
ToolbarItemName=addwatch!
ToolbarItemDownName=AddWatch5!
ToolbarItemVisible=TRUE
ToolbarItemDown=FALSE
ToolbarAnimation=FALSE
ToolbarItemSpace=0
ToolbarItemOrder=0
ToolbarItemBarIndex=1
Columns=2
DopDown=TRUE
ObjectType=MenuCascade

Thank you for your help!

Thomas

you can try to create a fresh dummy menu without any ancestor. For the parent (i.e Test) above properties looks fine. For child (i.e subtest1 and subtest2) ToolbarItemVisible=TRUE, DopDown=FALSE,ObjectType=Menu! should work.

I checked with pb10.5 and that works pretty fine. Don't know if there is any issue with PB11.5

Regards,
Sandeep

Hi

Thank you for your help!! I found the bug - it was because the menu was inherited and somehow my changes were ignored.
