Does anyone know of a plugin that would create a main menu as well as contextual menu besides Dacons?
I purchased Dacons Menu Control but I'm having a problem with it and their support team seems to be MIA!
What features are you looking for that aren't available in FileMaker?
(Just curious, I'm painfully aware of a number of menu shortcomings in value lists...)
I'm an admitted control freak. When I was working with FM a few years ago I found that I could just get rid of EVERY FM menu Item and start from scratch. That way the user of my solution only goes where I want them to.
The problem I'm having now is that when I load their plugin, my tool tips cease to work.
I don't know about eailer version of filemaker, but in 12 you can create your own menus without any plugins.
Yes, Dacons really suck. After many years of problems I got rid of them now.
In v12 I'm perfectly happy now with FM custom Menu for the main menu and CNSmenu for the contextual.
BTW, these references to custom menus are for FileMaker Advanced and custom menus has been an feature of Several versions of FIleMaker Advanced.
Yes, but in FM12 these Custom Menus have become really versatile, with the addition of the option "Install when".
I have found this post and I must agree that Dacons support and updating their plugins deserves -1. We will never buy anything from them. It is not strange that word is that the best way is avoid plugins as much as possible because on the long run you have a problem. To bad that FileMaker is not so advanced that it would be possible to avoid all plugins by using native functions.
You should try MBS Plugin for menu functions.
