Adding Menu Buttons in J-Link

Adding Menu Buttons in J-Link

Hi,



It might sound a silly problem, but for some unknown reasons I can add buttons to existing menus only as the first button. If I add a button and define the neighbour of the requested button, I do not get anything.


Anybody has a snippet of J-Link code that includes adding a button into a certain position in an existing menu, so that I can find what I am doing wrong?


Thank you in advance

Adding Menu Buttons in J-Link

Here is how I add a menu with submenues.
session = pfcGlobal.GetProESession();
session.UIAddMenu("jlink", "Utilities", "beo_jlink.txt", null);
session.UIAddMenu("pcb", "pe", "beo_jlink.txt", "jlink");
session.UIAddMenu("nc", "pcb", "beo_jlink.txt", "jlink");
session.UIAddMenu("op", "nc", "beo_jlink.txt", "jlink");

And here is adding buttons to the submenus:

UICommand m03HRNamingcommand = null;
UICommand m03DXFExportcommand = null;
try
{
m03HRNamingcommand = session.UICreateCommand("M03HRNaming", new
M03HRNamingListener());
session.UIAddButton(m03HRNamingcommand, "pcb", null, "M03HRNaming menu",
"M03HRNaming help", "beo_M03HRNaming.txt");
m03DXFExportcommand = session.UICreateCommand("M03DXFExport", new
M03DXFExportListener());
session.UIAddButton(m03DXFExportcommand, "pcb", null, "M03DXFEXport
menu", "M03DXFExport help", "beo_M03DXFExport.txt");
}
catch (Throwable x){}

RE: Adding Menu Buttons in J-Link

To get the correct name of the neighbor button, set the config.pro option 'cmdmgr_trail_output' to 'no'. This allows button names to be captured in the trail file.


This exampleadds a "Print PDF" buttonabove the "Drawing Options" button in the "File" menu:


curSession.UIAddButton (cmd, "File", "DetailFile.psh_draw_options", "Print PDF",
"Print the current drawing in PDF", "msg_createpdf.txt");

Adding Menu Buttons in J-Link

Thank you Mary and Bjarnee for your prompt reply.
Unfortunately, your advices didn't work, perhaps because I haven't made
myself clear enough in the initial question.
This is the situation:
I have a simple application written in J-Link and the menu is placed under
the Edit main menu. Here is the code:
....
try{
Session curSession = pfcGlobal.GetProESession( );

UICommand cmd = curSession.UICreateCommand ("ShadeFiles", new
MenuButtonListener());

curSession.UIAddButton (cmd, "Edit", null, "Shadow_Files",
"Create Shadow Files for NPI", "GetRevision.txt");
}
...
Very simple and it works
Now I want to add a new button under this application, but from a DIFFERENT
application:
....
try{
Session curSession = pfcGlobal.GetProESession( );

UICommand cmd = curSession.UICreateCommand ("CreateParams", new
MenuButtonListener());

curSession.UIAddButton (cmd, "Edit","ShadeFiles", "CreateParams",
"Create Standard Parameters for the Model",
"CreateParams.txt");
}
.....
Now, the second application doesn't add anything, in spite of the fact that
the command button name "Shadefiles" is correct.
Even if I use any of the existing other buttons of the existing menu, I get
nothing. If I put "null" instead of "ShadeFiles", I do get a new button on
the menu, but if I click on it, I get the the application ShadeFiles run
instead of Createparams.... It is very frustrating because I am sure that I
am doing something trivially stupid...
Could you please open my eyes?

Thank you

Uriel

Adding Menu Buttons in J-Link

Try:
curSession.UIAddButton (cmd, "Edit","JL.ShadeFiles", "CreateParams",
"Create Standard Parameters for the Model",
"CreateParams.txt");

When I select the "createpdf" button I showed in my example, I see the
following in the trail file:
!Application (createpdf): CmdMgr action_func '' called for cmd
'JL.createpdf'

So, if I want to add a button above this one, I would need to specify
"JL.createpdf" in UIAddButton.

Hope that helps.

Thank you Mary, I'll try that, though in my Trail File the "JL." addition
didn't show

All the best
