I am trying to uses the org.eclipse.ui.menu extension to contribute a
toolbar button to an existing view, the toolbar button will have a drop
down menu. The drop down menu is dynamic, the class extends the
CompondContributionItem and returns the CommandContributionItem objects.

I was able to achieve what I need if I only have one level menu item. I
don't know how to create multi-level menu item and this is what I need
help on.

Here is an exmaple:
Toolbar button
1st Level Menu Item1
1st Level Menu Item2
2nd Level Menu Item 1 << Need help to create these
2nd Level Menu Item 2
1st Level Menu Item3

Is there a proper way of creating multi-level dynamic menu without having
to overwrite the fill() method of the ContributionItem and creates the
MenuItem myself?

On the same topic, if I new the MenuItem, don't I have to dispose it? But
when I new a CommandContributionItem and return it to the
getContributionItems() method in the CompoundContributionItem object, the
MenuItem creates by the CompoundContributionItem does not call the dispose
method on the MenuItem? Is dipose call is required or the framework will
take care of disposing the MenuItem object?

Thanks,
Patrick
