Hide a PopupMenu in Manipulate

Hello, this is my first question in MathGroub and I hope I send it to the rigth email adress. I have just began learning Mathematica. I could not find the solution to the following problem: I have made a circle and the user should decide, whether the circle should have a color. If it should, three PopupMenus should be shown, but when the checkbox is not clicked, they should not be shown: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- (*Code: *) Manipulate[ Graphics[ { If[ color, {typ = PopupMenu; color1, Disk[] }, {typ = None; Circle[] } ]} ], {{color, False, "Color"}, {False, True}}, {{color1, Blue, "Color1"}, {Blue -> "Blue", Green -> "Green"}, ControlType -> typ} ] --------------------------------------------------------------------------- But as you can see, you have to recompile it in order to see the changes. Is there any way to do so, without recompiling the code? Thank you. Patrick Klitzke email:philologos14 at gmx.de
