Re: Customization of toolbox in creo parametric

HI,
I'm an beginner in  Creo Parametric ui customization. I'm trying to create ribbon tab with group and button, but can only create the button cascade that have sub-menu. How to create just a button with no any cascade in it ?
Per the post, other questions mentioned in this thread with saving .rbn file I have already resolved, and now I'm confused why I can't design simple button.

But I guess you haven't created any commands/buttons in your application yet. So you can't see it yet and can't add it to Ribbon. You must first Designate() command/button in your application, and after that will your button appear in the TOOLKIT Commands list/category. (A new command/button will probably be created via UICreateCommand().)

 

I would recommend you a chapter: 'Workflow to Add Menu Items to the Ribbon User Interface' and 'Designating Commands' in the VB API user manual, or wait for the answer of someone more experienced ...

 

Good luck to you.

Hi,

I'm not sure I understand. First select/choose  the correct target place in the right Ribbon list - choose Group (second Test(Custom)), then select required Command/Button, and move it from left list to right ribbon panel with arrow. 

(The Cascade menu you can Remove under the RMB context menu.)

I wan to create button for further usage in my app and add my command handler for that button. Yes I can add any button from the list of required commands as a button, but I cant rename it for my purpose:

Also I don't see the option how to make just button from the cascade:

So the question is open.

In your answer I saw on the screenshot that you have your own created button, and it is not as a cascade:

How you created that button ?

Ok, this is reasonable. Thank you, I'll check this.
