This week's tutorial shows you how to use the MenuBar component to create application style menus for your Flash movies or sites. Allan builds up a menu very familiar to all - duplicating the DMXzone top navigation menu and adding extra functionality! We'll see how to create a basic menu, nest multiple levels of menus and use special menu items that function like radio buttons and check boxes. MenuBar components use instances of the Menu component that we covered in the last tutorial, so it is helpful to have read it, but it is not a prerequisite for being able to follow along in this weeks installment.
