Instance Method


Selects the specified menu item.


func select(_ item: NSMenuItem?)



The menu item to select, or nil if you want to deselect all menu items.


By default, selecting or deselecting a menu item from a pop-up menu changes its state. Selecting a menu item from a pull-down menu does not automatically alter the state of the item. To disassociate the current selection from the state of menu items, set the altersStateOfSelectedItem property to false.
