Just had an idea that might be useful! I've hidden my menus and aMSN looks nicer.. I always try to avoid menus at maximum, I don't know why, I DO use them, I just don't like them to be visible. So I was wondering, can you trap the ALT key? It's usually used to access the menus, right (MS Windoze)? So I was wondering, if when the menus are hidden, if the user presses the ALT key, they would show, and if they lose focus, they'd get back to they're previous state... I don't know if tk allows you to trap these events, like menu unfocus and the others. Anyway, the hide menu option rules!! Wink Wink

what do you mean by "..if they loose focus.."? .wont this be cumbersome? unpredictable? ..everytime a new window shows up(regardless of where it came from) it takes the focus and when this option ..you will have to click amsn windows and hide it again ...you will have to do this everytime you open a new chat windows since they take the focus when they show up..

I'm not sure, but I think he wanted to say that when you push Alt, it activates the menu (and allows you to switch from one to another using the arrows), and when u stop pushing, it hides the menus.

Nope not like that, pess alt (and release) the menu would show up (focused (as If you did this when it is already showing!)) what I mean by unfocus is just the actual hiding of a menu.. kind of when you are browsing the menus it has "focus" and if you click an option or somewhere else it looses focus, just like it happens already!! If stilll you can't understand me I'll make some screenshots Wink Wink

Hmm let me see... go to aMSN.. make sure the menu is visible.. now click "Account" or "View" or whatever.. that's what I mean by "focus" (maybe not the right word, sorry :S) now, click any menu option, whatever it is.. the "menu" (not the menubar) disappears... What I meant was, for us wierd guys that like to hide the menu bar, what it is hidden, we press Alt and it would show the menubar, and focus it so we could navigate trough it by using the keyboard.. when we select an option or click anywhere else, the menu would disappear as it already does and so would the menubar.. got me? :S

Yeap they get pushed when you are browsing the menu, what I wanted was:
I have the menus hidden, but I need to access them. So instead of "Ctrl+M", *menu browsing*, "Ctrl+M" I would just do "ALT" and Menu browsing, so they would Show up when alt is pressed and disapear again when an option is selected or somewhere else is clicked (imagine you are browsing the menus but you DON'T want to select an option.). Can you get me? I hope so Smiley
