I've never seen any menu  with a scroll  bar, so actually I think this
is impossible (or at best not yet implemented anywhere), but I

I think you are mistaken, there is a scroll  lets say
in your bookmark menu  in your browser, if you have too
many bookmarks downward then scroll bar ( horizontal
with arrow down) appear.
I do not know how to implement that but i think you
hust have to put your menu object in to scroll object

What I have right now is that I get a list of fonts  in the system,
then for each one I create a JMenuItem and add it to my JMenu.
What's happening is that the list is long  and goes off the bottom of
the screen, and there is no way to get to lower menu  items.

I tried adding the menuitems into a JScrollPane, then add the
JScrollPane into the menu. But in this case, it looks like the whole
JScrollPane is treated as a single menu item, I can't select the
items inside it.
