Re: Can't find example on menus and buttons

With straight Native I only know two ways:


1.  Roll your own (difficult if you're new to this, tedious if you're not)




2.  Check out the dialog api's.  I prefer this method as you can add buttons with a text explanation in the dialog.  Also you can use the pick list and multi pick list dialogs.
