Code:
drawMenuInfoBar()
{
    self.infoBar["bg"] = self createShader("white", "CENTER", "BOTTOM", 0, 0, 2000, 24, (0,0,0), .8, 2);
    if(self.menu.open)
    {
            self.infoBar["string"] = self drawText(self.infoBar["normalOpen"], "objective", 1.5, "CENTER", "BOTTOM", 0, 0, (1,1,1), 1, 2);
    }
    else
        self.infoBar["string"] = self drawText(self.infoBar["close"], "objective", 1.5, "CENTER", "BOTTOM", 0, 0, (1,1,1), 1, 2);
}
Code:

see if you have all function needed for this functions and if it's not work, just try to delete it and add it again (but missed function is probably the problem)

And it asks just one times for the opened menu, if its not opened, then you will never see a string. (And it will never be opened when this code asks for it)

self.infoBar["normalOpen"] is an empty string.
I have this on spawn, so it shouldn't be.

Code:
self.infoBar["close"] = "Press [{+actionslot 1}] To Open "+getMenuName();
self.infoBar["normalOpen"] = "[{+actionslot 2}] / [{+actionslot 1}] = Scroll    [{+usereload}] = Select    [{+stance}] = Back    [{+melee}] = Close";
