Hi Pomen,

The menu is not such a good button to use though it does support menu items which you can add. Just create a menu item and give it the handle from the menu so it is attached to it. Then you can use the handle from the menu item to trigger the event in the loop.

This will run a au3 script named test2.au3

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
 
GUICreate("Menu", 500, 500)
 
$home = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&HOME")

; create a menu item for the script to run
$run = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Run a script", $home)

$register = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&REGISTER")
$admission = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&ADMISSION")
 
GUISetState()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
            
        Case $msg = $run
            ; add the name of the script into a variable
            $script = 'test2.au3'
            
            ; run the script
            Run('"' & @AutoItExe & '" /AutoIt3ExecuteScript "' & $script & '"')
            
    EndSelect
WEnd

Labels below the menu bar. Labels are quite easy to add.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
 
GUICreate("Menu", 500, 500)

; 5 labels created here
GUICtrlCreateLabel('label 1', 5, 0, 100)
GUICtrlCreateLabel('label 2', 105, 0, 100)
GUICtrlCreateLabel('label 3', 205, 0, 100)
GUICtrlCreateLabel('label 4', 305, 0, 100)
GUICtrlCreateLabel('label 5', 405, 0, 100)

$home = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&HOME")

; create a menu item for the script to run
$run = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Run a script", $home)

$register = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&REGISTER")
$now = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Now", $register)

$admission = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&ADMISSION")
$accept = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Accept", $admission)

GUISetState()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
            
        Case $msg = $run
            ; add the name of the script into a variable
            $script = 'test2.au3'
            
            ; run the script
            Run('"' & @AutoItExe & '" /AutoIt3ExecuteScript "' & $script & '"')
            If @error Then MsgBox(0x30, 'Run a script', 'test2.au3 did not run')
            
        Case $msg = $now
            MsgBox(0, 'Now', 'Time to register')
            
        Case $msg = $accept
            MsgBox(0, 'Accept', 'I can register it now')
            
    EndSelect
WEnd

5 labels for you. :)
