Well thanks for yet another attempt at a solution. Yet the fact remains that this popup menu acts in highly non-standard ways. On X11 the title bar *is* present. When you click somewhere off the popup it does *not* dissapear as it should. And when the window is near the screen border the popup will appear at a random location (sometimes on the opposite side of the screen). It is simply not something I'd use in a professional application. The same widget coded in C++/Qt only takes about twice the amount of code as REBOL. The neat thing is, it actually works properly (and on all platforms). -Karl
