Am i doing something wrong, or should cicking on the top
level item in a menubar (one that does not have any children) not
fire the itemClick event? I can't find any examples of menus that
don't have children.
This is a PITA behavior of menubar. The solution is to use
the "click" event instead of the itemClick event. You reference the
data provider Item in the handler like this:
var oItem:Object = event.target.data;
