Essentially what I'm doing is writing an app that does not use MenuBar's, simply because they look outdated and old. So instead what I'm doing is popping up a Menu say from a custom drawn button. However I was wondering what everyone thought the best way to go doing this would be? My initial idea was to pop up a frame but that seems an awful waste of resources and too heavy weight a component. So then I thought maybe pop up a panel on a layered pane which would be a bit more light weight. So what is the general consensus and what does JMenu use?
