A Topmenu presents a pull-down menu on the form associated with actions defined by the current interactive instruction in the BDL code.

When a Topmenu command is selected by the user, the BDL program triggers the action to which the Topmenu command is bound.

A Topmenu can be defined directly in the form or in a resource file with the extension 4tm.

See the topic on Topmenus in the Genero Business Development Language User Guide for more information.
