Re: Assigned: ReAction menu.class project

Intuition menus will not be used in new applications, if there are better MUI and Reaction menus.

It's irrelevant. The menus are Intuition menus, they will not be getting replaced any time soon. Even GadTools menus are Intuition menus, just with an additional layer of abstraction that handles all the layouting, putting submenu arrows in the right places etc, and ensures a uniform look.

I imagine the menu class will be implemented using GadTools, rather than re-writing all the layouting directly on top of Intuiton, as that'll be a lot of work to replace (and it's something that GadTools does a fantastic job of).

Having played around with manual layouting using image classes fed into GadTools menus, I can appreciate the amount of fiddliness required to get it right (and I've not figured out yet how to emulate the usual menu highlighting).
