So this is probably going to either very easy to answer and hard to explain or very hard to answer and easy to explain <.<

I have a menu with several options (save, save as..., load - options -cut, paste etc...) I have never had to use a menu gadget before and I have no idea how you register which item in the menu has been clicked on. I have tried several variations of code

I cannot figure out how to return the item clicked. I feel noobish. It's probably really very simple. Any understanding would help. TY

Look on this page:

There is a code section that will show you how to do menus. Plus a few other things with bluegui and the windows api.

When adding an item to a menu, you assign it a return value.
You can then tell when a certain menu item has been clicked by looking for a menu click event type, event source beeing the relevant menu handle and the item's return value is returned by eventData().
