Well, my real suggestion would be to change this application. Don't
you think it is weird that when you select a month for a specific
action, all the other actions will have the same month selected ? 

yeah I know - I've used a radiobutton  to see if it could be used instead of
a cascaded menu. The 'partial' bit is that I was able to to identify the
selection through the use the variables but as you say - it is not a good
way to go about this.

I've just run your code and it is exactly what I'm trying to do :-D however
I ideally want to use add_cascade() instead of add_radiobutton() .. my
problem is that a menu object does not provide for use
of variables and so far, using variables is the only way I've managed to get
a 'partial' solution albeit a bad one!!

Therefore the solution I've been trying to achieve is what your code does
but using add_cascade().  Failing that a rethink of the app. 

thanks again
