Can't get menu bars to work.

Hey guys,

I'm having problems adding a menu bar to my carbon app. I can set the menu bar successfully from a nib but my problem is that when I click on the items I don't get any dialog to pull down. Its like the bar wasn't even there.

I guess that I'm missing to install some sort of handler, but so far I haven't had any lucky figuring out which one it is. I've noticed that if I call RunApplicationEventLoop() the menu bar works okay, the thing is I have my own loop so calling that function is not an option. I've tried stepping into that function to see what it's doing that I don't, but apparently you cannot step into that code. Any comments or pointers to documentation will be appreciated.
