Discussion

For pull-down menus that get their titles from a menu item, this method simply sets the pop-up button cell’s menu item to the first item in the menu. For pop-up menus, if a menu item whose title matches aString exists, this method makes that menu item the current selection; otherwise, it creates a new menu item with the title aString, adds it to the pop-up menu, and selects it.
