    i seem to be able to see them here.
    i’ll have to try to build this with care separately; i’m having
    trouble trying to do it within my current method, as it has
    xxx menu entries at the moment. there is stuff there that is new
    to me, takes a little while to process ? – but i get the gist of it.

    so i would need, somehow to make my popup refer to the same table
    that is used for fetching the itemNames, rather than having it all
    doubled up. you’re quick, man ?

    am i seeing that you did change that background colour, from your gif?

    I hope there’s a way to get the menu item names – that would be easier than fetching from a table 🙂

    Good luck for your project 🙂

    Now the code should work…(this forum doesn’t work correctly if there is a letter “i” inside square brackets.)

    that was quick – is that your popup with green text and black bg?

    That’s just a text label.

    For some reason, I can’t paste the correct code inside the “code tags”…

    This line:
    pMenu:addColouredItem(i, itemNames, Colour(0xff21c630), true, false, Image())
    should be:
    pMenu:addColouredItem(i, itemNames[ i ], Colour(0xff21c630), true, false, Image())

    edit: square brackets and letter “i” don’t work in this forum…

    EDIT: now this should work

    I don’t know how to get a text from a menu item, but maybe this would work:

    -- Create a table for menu item names
    itemNames =
    {
    	"blablabla",
    	"blablabla2",
    	"blablabla3"
    }
    
    -- Create a popupMenu
    local pMenu = PopupMenu()
    
    -- Create menu items from the "itemNames" -table
    for itemIndex=1, #itemNames do
    	pMenu:addColouredItem(itemIndex, itemNames[itemIndex], Colour(0xff21c630), true, false, Image())
    end
    
    -- Show the menu
    local ret = pMenu:show(0,0,0,0)
    
    -- Return if nothing is selected
    if ret == 0 then 
    	return
    end
    
    -- Print the correct name from the "itemNames" -table
    -- Here you could send the name to a label
    console(itemNames[ret])

    Maybe it is possible, but I don’t know how to use this info :)…

    Public Types

    enum ColourIds {
    backgroundColourId = 0x1000700, textColourId = 0x1000600, headerTextColourId = 0x1000601, highlightedBackgroundColourId = 0x1000900,
    highlightedTextColourId = 0x1000800
    }
    A set of colour IDs to use to change the colour of various aspects of the menu. More…

    oh great, thanks ! one more thing resolved ?
    will try that.
    ‘addColouredItem’ – for each entry? – where did you find that?
    any indication that the popup background might be able to be
    coloured? or (…) current selected item ? ;-D

    i’ve used ‘image()’ for some frames i would otherwise have in
    an image strip, that works – can’t remember if i’ve tried to
    have coloured ones, these are monochrome atm.

    I found it here
    https://www.juce.com/doc/classPopupMenu#abca9890f63f22575c190c0115a1f3acf

    and here:

    https://github.com/RomanKubiak/ctrlr/blob/master/Source/UIComponents/CtrlrMIDI/CtrlrMIDIMon.cpp#L108

    I don’t know if it’s possible to change the bg-color…

    This seem to work for menu item text color:

    Tone_params:addColouredItem(1, "toneName1 00 00/VSTindex1", Colour(0xff21c630), true, false, Image())

    Confirmed.
    It seems to unfreeze when selecting the same color property again…it’s hard to explain, see the gif below 🙂

    Thanks for pointing out that “L() macro” -thing!

    It’s possible to append a whitespace using “..” operator:
    newString = "string1" .. " " .. "string2"

    Here’s “buildString” -function from your panel (http://ctrlr.org/forums/topic/needing-combo-box-to-output-specfic-syses-strings/#post-72418)

    buildString=function()
    
    	-- This stops issues during panel bootup
    	if panel:getRestoreState() or panel:getProgramState() then return end
    
    	local byte1 =  L(panel:getComponent("prefix3") :getText())
    	local byte2 =  L(panel:getComponent("manufDevID") :getText())
    	local byte3 =  L(panel:getComponent("address") :getText())
    	local byte4 =  L(panel:getComponent("suffix3") :getText())
    
    	completeSyxExData = byte1 .. " ".. byte2 .. " " .. byte3 .. " " .. byte4
    	panel:getComponent("destText3"):setPropertyString("uiLabelText", completeSyxExData)
    end

    or

    buildString=function()
    
    	-- This stops issues during panel bootup
    	if panel:getRestoreState() or panel:getProgramState() then return end
    	completeSyxExData = 
    		L(panel:getComponent("prefix3") :getText()) 	.. " " ..
    		L(panel:getComponent("manufDevID"):getText()) 	.. " " ..
    	 	L(panel:getComponent("address") :getText()) 	.. " " ..
    		L(panel:getComponent("suffix3") :getText())
    
    	panel:getComponent("destText3"):setPropertyString("uiLabelText", completeSyxExData)
    end
