Re: Getting submenu from a MenuItem

Hi Toby,

To add an arbitrary widget to a Gtk::Menu you can create a MenuItem
and use ->add(). This is how I insert space into a menu. For example:

    # menu created, items added....

    # Spacer
    $menuItem = Gtk::MenuItem->new();
    my $sbox = Gtk::HBox->new(0, 0);
    my $slabel = Gtk::Label->new;
    $sbox->pack_start($slabel, 1, 1, 0); # label expands to fill the box...

Perhaps this is what you are looking for??

Ahhhh ok thanks.

Without seeing your code, or exactly what you need to do, I can only
suggest that it might be easier to keep track of this yourself.
If you create a menu structure in a hash, it should be fairly trivial to
keep track of the heirarchy.  Though somebody else may have a much
better solution ;)

Well that was what I was hoping to do, but I want to also include seperators 
in a Gtk::Menu, which as far as I could see, can only be done using 
Gtk::itemfactory, which I think I might be wrong on, which I'm sure someone 
will point out to me. But when using Gtk::itemfactory I also can't find a 
method of getting the references to Gtk::MenuItems, so I'm sorta stuck really.
