Hi Patrick!

Thanks for your reply. I actually wouldn't dare to post here before looking 
into TSref!  ;o)

Reviewing my posting I saw that I made an error. Your solution is correct 
for the problem I described, but what I need is an output like this:


In words:  it should include the topmost item (MenuitemA) but not the 
siblings of that item (MenuitemB, C).

Using an approach with...
   10 = HMENU
   10.special = directory
   10.special.value = {first UID in rootline}
would do exactly that. But as I said, I can't find out how to extract one 
given UID (e.g. the first or second or third UID) from the rootline and us 
it as a value for a property in TS.
Is there any way to do this?!?

Sorry again for my faulty description in the first posting. I tried to 
simplify the problem description and overdid it.
