Class Menus

  • public class Menus
    extends java.lang.Object
    This class installs and updates ImageJ's menus. Note that menu labels, even in submenus, must be unique. This is because ImageJ uses a single hash table for all menu labels. If you look closely, you will see that File->Import->Text Image... and File->Save As->Text Image... do not use the same label. One of the labels has an extra space.
