I'm pretty jazzed about some code I did thats part of the examples on the
STAZ site.  One is kinda old but I dont think many people had seen it
before.  The other is pretty new.

The older code shows how to embed a process definintion (LDEF,CDEF,MDEF...)
in your code WITHOUT writing it as an external code resource.  This can be
found in the DCOD & DEFs section.  Its called embedded LDEF.

The other show how to provide status bar information while you are choosing
a menu item.  There is nothing more modal than choosing a menu item.  If
you've used Windows(tm) you've probably seen descriptions of menu items
while your dragging over a menu item.  Unlike balloon help where you get a
balloon to pop up while your choosing an item but a bar at the bottom of the
screen give you a description of what you are choosing, while you are
choosing it.  Well, I did it.  I figured out how to do the same thing, and I
kept it pretty simple too.  It did take me about two weeks of free time to
figure it out but it was worth the time spent.  You can find this in the
menu examples.  It is called menuHook example.

Anyway, I would love for others to take a look at.  Give me suggestions and
input as to what you think could be improved.


Remember, each one teach one.
