It's hard without seeing any code snippets to know exactly what you're
getting at. What is the block that you're passing in to
The general pattern I use with navigation components like that is to pass
them in a 'target'. So, if the actions of the menu items are affecting
the MainPage, when you create your MenuBar you would pass in that
bar := MenuBar new target: mainPage.
The MenuBar might in turn pass this on to its items:
description: 'Do Some Stuff')
Rendering the menu item might then look like this:
html anchorWithAction: [target perform: selector] text: description.
How closely does that match what you're doing?
