Does anyone know any good options for a "drop down" menu control?
I was using OS Controls XTRA, which was great...But that's no longer available for Director.
Director comes with one, but as we all know that neither looks nor functions like something made after 1987.
Here's a demo of a draft version of a customisable popup menu:
You might also like to look at Luke Wigley's One Sprite Widgets, which you can find here: http://www.lingoworkshop.com/Codelib/index.php and Gary Smiths Buddy Menu: http://www.mods.com.au/xtras/default.htm
Revisiting this one...
So I ended up using the One Sprite Widget http://www.lingoworkshop.com/Codelib/index.php -- specifically the drop own menu part.
The problem is it doesn't work very stable on all Windows machines.
Sometimes it works, sometimes the drop downs don't respond.
Has ANYONE else run into this issue? and/or have a fix?
Or does anyone have any good "drop down menu" replacements.
It's so hard to believe that Director doesn't come with a semi-usable one.
I also recommend Buddy Menu. It is not a standard drop down box, but I have found it to be very reliable. Just make a text member (non-editable), attach an 'on mouseUp' script that that pops up the menu and then populate the text box with the users selection.
