Martin,

Well it was an excellent example.  I made a couple of demos that launch
pieces of things that I want to show and use your code as a template.  It
dazzles but doesn't sell.  There are still companies that are at V2R3M0 with
5297's (right number? the ones we used to call flower pot holders cause they
had a nice 'landing' on the right side to put a flower pot)  and older
equipment that are just not ready for push buttons.   Of course there are
others at 4.4 with every gadget available.  <gripe> Stinking LCD. </gripe>

With your example, I don't think you really need to have a mouse since you
can tab to your selection, just like in winDoze, and press enter when you
highlight the one you want.

BTW, I'll bookmark that page of yours now.

Thanks,
Bill
