Thank you! You seem to be the only one that takes an interest in my peculiar questions.

The dialog takes extra clicks- one to select a menu item that displays the dialog, then more clicks to interact with the dialog and click OK button. I agree that huge menus aren't great; I'm not sure where the big menu gets to be big enough to counteract the drawbacks of putting up a dialog.

> By the way you can always to make your dialog function like menu.

That would be cool. Can you give me a pointer to get me started?

Wait- I guess there really isn't any trickiness- just a button; when you click the button, the dialog goes up posititioned at the mouse click. Any accept or reject causes the dialog to disappear. I'll think seriously about that!
