Execute a command when a menu pad is highlighted
ON MENU <menu name> [<command>]
The ON MENU command is used to specify commands which will execute when menu pads that do not have an ON PAD command associated with them are highlighted. A pad is a menu option in an Xbase style menu. These types of menus are created with the DEFINE MENU and DEFINE PAD commands. The menu is identified by the name <menu name> that was assigned with the DEFINE MENU command. The command SET COMPATIBLE should be ON when using Xbase style menus.
The specified command, <command>, may be any Recital/4GL command. To specify a command that will execute when an individual pad is selected, see the ON SELECTION PAD command. To specify a command to execute when an individual pad is highlighted, use the ON PAD command. Used without a specified command, the ON MENU command disables previously specified commands. Commands specified by an ON PAD command override commands specified by the ON MENU command.
