The problem: I do not want MenuBar to be my main menu. Instead, I would like
my menu to look like a Popup menu. Only problem with existing popup menus is
that they disappear when I press ESC (or when I click outside their area).

Does anyone have any idea/suggestion what I can do to keep them fixed to the
Shell during the application life time?

That's odd, I thought I had already replied to this one...

The short answer is no, there is no way. At least, not with native menus. Most platforms don't support that sort of functionality. What you'll have to do is emulate the funcitonality by drawing the menus yourself. Be forwarned though, this is not going to look native if you try it.
