Discuss PocketC for Palm OS (including Desktop Edition)

Has anyone figured out how to simulate OS 3.5 ability to pop the menu down by tapping the formname rather than the menu button?

If you use CControls you should look at the following sample.

mmmessageloop(){
int e;
while(1){
e=event(1);
if((penx()<60)&&(peny()<15)) e=11;
if(Cevent(mm1,e)) on_mm1();}
}

Just insert the pen event before calling the CControls routine.
If you do not use CControls, I hope this gives you a starting point ... <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

Thanks alot it worked perfect...
Now is there a way for it to drop the menu down automatically like standard PalmOS Apps do?

Sorry, I cannot help you with that. I suppose it could be done, but that would require some modifications in CControls?
