I am sorry. I am replacing the "most conventional way" in my post with
"RSI recommended way". This way, David will be not out of step with
everyone else but, on the contrary, ahead of the pack and diverged from
the evil way :-)

P.S. To get at least a tiny bit of my trashed reputation back, I'll say
that I do use Value of button widgets to determine which one sent an
event. However, I am really old-fashioned when it comes to other widgets
and use their Uvalue. I admit to using cw_pdmenu for menu items, when I
needed an easy, no-tricks menus. Sorry. I am disqualified :-(
