How to manipulate menu during runtime?

Postby frog » Thu Jan 24, 2008 3:53 pm

Hallo,

i initialize my menu with help of the callback method "public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu)". In this method i also create some member reference to the handed over menu and items i create.

  1.  
  2.         public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu)
  3.  
  4.         {
  5.  
  6.                 this.menu = menu;
  7.  
  8.                 this.menuPlayItem = menu.add(1, 1, "play");
  9.  
  10.                 this.menuPlayItem.setShown(true);
  11.  
  12.                 return super.onCreateOptionsMenu(menu);
  13.  
  14.         }
  15.

During runtime i want to manipulate the menu and items but the references i created before are pointing to null!

any suggestions? tipps? isn't it possible to manipulate the menu outside of "onCreateOptionsMenu"?

the menu is there and selectable and so the references SHOULD point to something useful because "onCreateOptionsMenu" was run successful.
