Ive got a problem with menu sub commands

Ive got a problem fron a menu script where:

If i choose option 1 it will run a command for instance

option 1 will run another script that will grep for a certain process name also using the If command. IE if chicken process is present echo cluck cluck, but if no chicken then echo no eggs !!!

How would i re-route the end message from the other script back to echo in the main script menu window ?


Hope someone can help

Many Thanks

echo ""
echo -n " choice: "
read choice

case "$choice" in

1) df;;

2) ./script2;;

7) ./ CCcam_restart.sh;;
esac


i on my 7) choice, the script will restart Application CCcam but if it finished with success being the it restarted correctly , it should echo " Cccam restart successfully " to screen.


Hope this will help..

Many Thanks

You may want to add something like this to choice 7:

Code:
...
case "$choice" in
...
...
  7) ./CCcam_restart.sh
     retval=$?
     if [ "$retval" -eq "0" ] ; then
       echo "CCcam restarted successfully"
     fi;;
...
esac
...
