Menus and Toolbars

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

More often, commands are initiated from menus and toolbars. The View Composer includes a Menu Composer to help with the creation of menu bars and context menus. This is accessible from within the Modify/Menu Bar or Modify/Context Menu pulldowns but it is beyond the scope of this tutorial to go into the details of menu building. You should find the Menu Composer fairly intuitive to use if you want to add, say, a Transaction menu to the menu bar of the shell. Such a menu could be used to send the same commands as the push buttons thus giving the user a choice of how to use the interface.
