Defining Main menu actions
Main menu actions are called GlobalActions. We start by bringing up the Actions definition window:
We add some GlobalActions and give them names based on what we want them to do in the end:
If I run this as is in WECPOF I get this main menu:
But we want to organize the menu, so we create some Menu-Groups:
Now I can decide in what group my actions should be:
and then I get this result when running WECPOF:
To get the internal order and dividers into the menu I need to set Divider group for the items, if this differs between two actions they will be separated by a divider. If it is the same between two actions the actions will be sorted on the “Sort order in Group” value within the group.
This is what I get in WECPOF now:
If I want to organize the actions in sub menus I do this by declaring a new Menu group:
And I use that group on the actions I want in the submenu:
The strategy for creating context menus is exactly the same.
Context menus show up in Grid components, and in the header of WECPOF windows:
