How to make the menu keys work
Hi all,
With "DRAWMENU" I can create a menu on the screen. But how can I make those menu keys work? In the HP-48 and HP50 you had this structure: { {"Menukey1" << Program1 >> }{"Menukey2" << Program2 >>} ......}. In other words, how do you connect a program to a menu key? I can't find anything about it in the manual. Please send me an answer so that I can continue programming. Sincerely, Karel.

I use HP-16C, WP-34S emulator, HP-35s, HP-48GX, HP-50g, and HP Prime G2.

Bonjour

DRAWMENU ne sert que pendant l'exécution d'un programme.
On ne peut pas faire de menus personnalisé dans Home pour le moment.

Hello

DRAWMENU is only used during the execution of a program.
Custom menus cannot be made in Home at the moment.

Sorry for my english

Please have a look at https://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-2815.html,
there in the program example (Setting calculator's auto shutoff, by Wolfgang) you can find the usage of menu handling.

calculators: Prime G1/G2, HP48, 49, 42S, 50, WP34s, DM42

RE: How to make the menu keys work
Dear Thomas,
Thank you very much for your response! I have taken a quick look at the code for the auto shutoff program, and I will be using it soon. I hope it will help, but I have a good feeling that it will work. Soon I will let you know what my experience with this program is. Sincerely, Karel.

I use HP-16C, WP-34S emulator, HP-35s, HP-48GX, HP-50g, and HP Prime G2.
