This control is part of iWebKit, which has been deprecated.

The Menu control is used to give the user a choice what action to take next. Each item can have a description.

You supply it with a list of items, and it will create one choice for each item. When the menu is first displayed, you need to call Controlname.refresh().

To add a Menu to your app, choose the MenuTextBlock icon in the Toolbar. Use the Property Editor to set the properties.

addItem(textBlock, item) Add textBlock to position item on the list. If item is not supplied, add to the end. HTML is OK.
