The setUpMenus message is generated when the user pulls down an Oracle Media Objects menu. With a setUpMenus handler, the developer can dynamically change the appearance or contents of a user-defined menu.

Quotes are stripped out of custom menus and menu items.

in this card
g_current_card end if
on doMenu menu_item, menu_name if menu_name is "Objects" then
