14 The Interface Builder

14.3 Creating a menu system

The menus view of the interface builder can be used to define a menu system for the current interface. Choose View > Menus to switch to the menus view from any other view in the interface builder. The interface builder appears as shown in Figure 14.4.

Figure 14.4 Displaying the menu structure of an interface

The menus view has two areas, together with six buttons which are used to create different menu elements. As with layouts, it is important to understand how CAPI menus are constructed. See the LispWorks Guide to the CAPI for details.
