Accessing Menus from Alerts and Dialogs

When alerts and dialogs are displayed, the Dialog Manager and the Menu Manager interact to provide varying degrees of access to menus in your menu bar. In some circumstances, you can rely on the system software to disable the appropriate menus and menu items. In other circumstances, you application must contribute to, or control, the matter of menu access.

The subject of menu access when alerts, movable alerts, modal dialogs, moveable modal dialogs, and modeless dialogs are displayed is somewhat involved, and is addressed in detail in Chapter 8.
