Menus are used to present a user with a hierarchical selection of options. Pivot supports three primary means of incorporating menus into an application:

  • Context Menus - generally provide convenient "right-click" access to context-sensitive functionality.
  • Menu Bars - collection of menus generally located at the top of an application window that provide access to major application features.
  • Menu Buttons - provide access to "drop-down" menus, similar to list buttons; often used in toolbars.

Context menus are discussed first.
