How Menu Button WORKS in NAV 4.0

arindamarindam Member Posts: 176
I am blocked on how the menu-button works.

The scenario:
· I want to add a MENU <Validate Address> on the ‘Customer’ menu-bitton on the ‘Customer Card’
· On the click event of the <Validate Address> I want to run a function <x> within a form <y>
· Function <x> has 7 IN parameters.
· Form <Y> has to be opened in the modal mode.
· Is this possible through menu-button? Or should I use a button (I would love to avoid the second option here)

Another Question:
How can I know which tab is open in the current form?

    Better use a commandbutton. If you don't have menu's in your button, this is the way to follow.
    Why would you prefer to avoid it?



    Another answer : it is not possible to know which tab is open. Or you have to put some code after the "OnActivate"-trigger of each control.

    Thanks Kirki...

    I want to use the menu button because that gives me the CTRL + '' functionality...

    anyways I have already written the code in a command button and will use the ALT+'' function !!!

    thanks for a quick reply Buddy!!!

    Here is another way:
    If you use a menubutton, you need to create a menuitem. The code you put behind that menuitem and not behind the menubutton and you can assign a shortcut to it.
