I always thought that a popup menu was identical to a regular menu --
except it was placed somewhere other than on the menu bar. In a regular
menu, I can place check marks beside any item listed. So, I don't see why
there is a distinction between the two menus. Anyone have an idea why --
other than it's anti-HIG?

As for my problem, I have a confined space and a list of items that change
in number greatly. Both of which do not lend themselves well to check
boxes. Therefore, I like jonathan's idea to make another window with
checkboxes. So, anyone have an idea of how to make a popup window? :-)
