Hi,

I'd like to add a popup menu on a DateTime widget.
The popup contains a single item that resets the value to a standard one.

I have tried as follows:

DateTime dt = new DateTime(parent, style);
Menu menu = new Menu(dt.getParent().getShell(), SWT.POP_UP);
MenuItem mi = new MenuItem(menu, SWT.PUSH);
mi.setText("Reset");
dt.setMenu(popup);

But the popup menu isn't show, the standard OS's provided one raises.
The same code runs fine on a Text widget.

I have solved my issue.
The problem is that DateTime is a composite that contains a text field
and other controls.
When I call DateTime.setMenu() I set the menu to the composite but not on
the containing field.

I edited my method as follows:
DateTime dt = new DateTime(parent, style);
Menu menu = new Menu(dt.getParent().getShell(), SWT.POP_UP);
MenuItem mi = new MenuItem(menu, SWT.PUSH);
mi.setText("Reset");
for( Control each : dt.getChildren())
{
if( each instanceof Text)
each.setMenu(popup);
}

Should i file a bug? Where?
