I cannot figure out what kind of menu system to create so, what would be the best way to create a handy menu system?

There are the main names such as 'File' but I also need to figure out the sub headings, please post your suggestions or if you can correct mine:

code:

|File|
    ---------------------
    <-- New
    ---------------------
    <-- Open
    <-- Save
    <-- Save As...
    ---------------------
    <-- New Tile
    <-- New Map
    ---------------------
    <-- Export Tiles...
    <-- Export Map...
    ---------------------
    <-- Exit
    ---------------------


besiede File I'll put something like this:

code:

|Edit|
    ----------------------
    <-- Undo
    <-- Redo
    ----------------------
    <-- Cut
    <-- Copy
    <-- Paste
    <-- Delete
    ----------------------
    <-- Tile Properties
    <-- Map Properties
    ----------------------


Anything else I need to add?

I'm actually gonna make a Turing Program using the system you give me... Smile

Ok, here is the menu system I got, you can edit it and post it here if you like... or post it how I did just above...

*Note you need to export all the files into one folder, and then just run Main.t:



MenuSystem.zip

i tried it and it's really cool, but you can't click of the menu and get rid of it (the thing that pops down)

Turing menus are twisted , you have to hold down and then release on the button you want to get it to work

damn turing, why don't they just go straight into a more difficult language in schools, people will eventually pick things up, won't they? Question

I dunno... Im just starting Java by myself, the syntax and format and stuff seems more difficult than turing, plus some people didn't know what they were getting themselves into when they take Compsci, in my grade 10 class, there are at least 5 people, outta the 25, that have little or no idea what they are doing on turing. (Which I blame partly on the teacher disappearing 30 min outta 1 hr of class), imagine them take a more difficult programming language at the beginning..

Click off the menu, who would want that? Laughing
I'm making my own Menus and Buttons,
I want to be free, no dependance on Turing build in stuff... Wink

[edit] I would love a MORE difficult programming language. I'm in grade 10, and it's so booring... I am just learning ahead by my own...

people in my class last semester were given really easy quizes like how to put info into a 10 element array and then be able to access it, and they couldn't do it... though that was because they didn't try to learn it and screwed around in class, maybe people need to work harder in compsci class to understand the stuff. (i wonder why i don't use periods a lot, humm)

Free! Free as the wind blows! ahem... good for you, though what if I change my mind and want to click off menu??! what am I gonna do then??? Oh no, a never ending trap of non-clickoffable-menus. *pushes reset button on computer*

Now, don't loose your head...
It is just for you to look at, and you can adjust it within the program easily... Smile
