RE: [WIP] MurgaLua Reference Tool - a little help?

This is seriously driving me NUTS!

I have a test for whether or not a *.txt file exists, and the result of this test determines whether or not a specific menu item is enabled. I also have a print("yes it works") command as part of the test, and this print command works every time, in the exact same place that the activate/deactivate command is found. I've gone over and over this at least several dozen times, and it makes no sense to me that the print shows when it's supposed to, but the enabling of the menu item only works sometimes.

As another test, to see if there might be an issue with enabling/disabling a menu item, I created this:

Code:
function menu_callback()
if menu:text()=="disable item 1" then itemone:deactivate()
elseif menu:text()=="enable item 1" then itemone:activate()
end
end

window = fltk:Fl_Window(400, 200, "menu test")
menu=fltk:Fl_Menu_Bar(0,0,400,30)
menu:add("file/item1")
menu:add("file/item2")
menu:add("file/item3")
menu:add("disable item 1")
menu:add("enable item 1")

menu:callback(menu_callback)

itemone=menu:find_item("file/item1")
window:show()
Fl:run()

And of course that works every time.
So i'm throwing this project aside for an indefinite period of time. I'm sick of stuggling with this one stupid issue and sick of looking at this script as a result. I'll get back to it some time later when I feel like abusing my brain.
