Is it possible to have a custom app only show up in the short cut menu when a UGMASTER (obect type) is selected? Say I have a app called Hello World. I would like to have the app show up in the short cut menu when a part is selected.

Is this possible to do?

Thanks

Hi Jateater,

What do you mean with the shortcut menu? Is it the right-click menu, the
context menu? And what do you mean with an app. Is it a command or an action?

If so, yes, this is possible. Check the command and handler documentation on
the internet and look for core expressions.

You can specify a command to be active if the class of an object is a certain
type. Or you can ask a propertytester for any other attribte.

Wim Jongman

Thanks for the response. Let me try and clear up the question a little better. Right now I have a custom command that shows up when I do a right mouse click. This works in any perspective. What I am wanting is for the command to only show up in the right mouse click when a dataset is selected. I have a dataset type named UGMASTER. So when a user right clicks on the UGMASTER dataset, I want my custom command to show up.

Here is the xml code that I am playing with

<visibleWhen>
<with
variable="activeMenuSelection">
<iterate>
<adapt
type="UGMASTER"> <= this is where I am at a lost
</adapt>
</iterate>
</with>

</visibleWhen>

I hope you can help because I am at a lost

Hi,

Is it a tree- or a table element that you are selecting? What do you mean
with a dataset? What view are you talking about?

Try this:

<activeWhen>
<iterate>
<instanceof value="?.?UGMASTER"/>
</iterate>
</activeWhen>

Does this help?

Regards,

Wim
