X11 has no concept of menus - those are implemented in toolkits (usually) or
applications (in some rare cases).   Similarly once the events are delivered
to the client, you'd need some form of debugger or remote introspection to
find out if the client has processed them or still has them in a queue to
handle later - there is no X11 API to query event queue state from another
