How to remove a component created with Executions.createComponents

In the controller class I'm adding a new component to the mainWindow like that:

Executions.createComponents("/includes/menu.zul", mainWindow, null);

And menu.zul is added to the bottom of my window exactly like I want.

Now the problem: I want one of the methods in the same controller class to be able to detach or remove menu.zul component. I can't call detach() method directly because I don't know that object's name or ID. Any ideas please?

Can you keep a reference to the menu object in your composer? Like a class field?

public class MyComposer extends GenericForwardComposer{

     Component menu;

     public void doAfterCompose(Component comp){
          this.menu = Executions.createComponents("/includes/menu.zul", mainWindow, null);

     private void removeMenu(){
         if (this.menu != null){
              mainWindow.invalidate(); //force mainWindow to readraw
