Somewhat related question, regarding that Watch Recordings action menu 
again.  While I'd like to use UIListBtnTree as a list of scrollable 
buttons, is there any hints on how to accomplish this as a pop-up?  
Everything I've seen to date on the UItypes code has been on full screen 

Also, would you prefer a scrollable pop-up list of choices over say a 
full screen INFO screen that appears when pressing INFO on Watch Records 
with a scrollable action list on that page?
