XML menubar listener

I’m hoping that someone around here can help me before I tear out my last hair.

I have a functional menubar component that’s tied to an external XML file using the XML connector component. My XML looks like this (and was pulled from the fantastic XML drop-down menu tutorial by senocular):

<menu-item name=“google” action=“getURL” variables=“http://www.google.com” />

All appears fine. The drop-down appears. The text in the drop-down is correct. But clicking a menu item yields absolutely nothing. Clearly, a listener is required. However, I can’t find a tutorial for creating a listener for actions and variables in the XML file. I tried to use Senocular’s XML drop-down tutorial as a base but I can’t get it to work.

I’d really appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction. Perhaps the great Senocular himself?
