Have created a frame with a nice menu on it and hav added a popup menu as well.
Now how do I get my app to respond to someone clicking on a menu item? Am armed with my 'Teach Yourself
In 21 Days' bible but doesn't cover this.

for each menu item you have, do the following:
where you substitute 'menuItem' for the actual name of your menu item, then
public void actionPerformed(
//..code to do whatever
That should work for you
Happy Coding all!
