Yes, this would be a common technique.

Better yet is to provide textures with borders, edges, backgrounds, buttons and then mix these in realtime. This allows for a more flexible and resizable menu.

Then you would need some kind of GUI-widget programming. So that buttons behave like buttons and so on... :)

Cheers!

*points* I was writing menu's last. That's a massive chunk of code to get right. What are you using? SDL? Remember start simple like getting a quit menu (which will be a simple fill box) to appear and disappear when you hit the letter 'q' or when you enter into your command prompt '/quit' Secondly, and most importantly, it's the last thing to be drawn to screen so that it appear on top of everything.

Good luck and Private massge me how your menu's are working.
