Hierarchical Menus in Frames
the menu arrays

The structure of the arrays, and the logic it follows, is discussed in great detail in our first menu column.

Reproduced below are the arrays used in the working examples on this page. Open the menus and compare their content to the array elements.

For more complex hierarchical menu arrays, please refer to the listings in column 14 and column 15.

Remember: The final array element is not followed by a comma!
