Subj: Pulldown Menu...               Conf: (2) Quik_Bas
Once upon a time Jeff Johnston uttered these sage words to Mark Butler:

 JJ> Hey, Mark!

 JJ> RestScrn.  It looks like this.

 The code must be compiled to be run since "MemCopy" is an alias for a
 QB internal normally called B$ASSN. Look at the sub declarations and
 you'll see it there. This QB internal is not callable in the
 environment but could be replaced by something like Tom Hanlin's
 "BlockMove" from his ADVBAS lib if you wanted. Then it could be run
 in the environment using a QLB with BlockMove in it.
