Over the following months I'll be posting some source code examples using my base:library which is available (as an older version which will be shortly updated) on OS4Depot.
The base:library contains many useful functions for creating:
A lot of software makes use of menu's. Menu's are a means for the user to perform certain actions with the application. Often even the simplest applications have a menu built in, beit small, beit extensive and all variations in between.
In part one we took a look at the new "popup" menu feature of window.class and what the default options are and how to use them. In part two, we shall discuss how the application programmer can add items to the popup menu, and be notified when the user has selected one of these custom options.
The complexity of the user interface of a program can increase along with the features of the program itself, and finding a healthy balance of usability and functionality is sometimes more difficult than you might think.
