    Runtime Toolbar

      Runtime Toolbar

      Post

      Is there a way to highly modify (maybe Help/About only) or eliminate the default FMPro toolbar (File..Edit..View..etc.) in a runtime solution when a non SuperUser logs in? I am able to hide the Status Area from the user, but can't seem to be able to get rid of the default window toolbar.

          You can use custom menus to design menus that only have the options you want the user to have. Then you can use a script that checks the account name and uses install custom menu set to change the custom menus specified so that a super user gets access to the full menus and the normal access level users do not.

          There are also settings in Manage | Security that limit the available menu options so you might check out that option first in case that gives you a sufficient level of control over the menus to get what you want without having to set up custom menus.

             Thanks.  The Manage-Security only seems to allow to select a "Minimum" toolbar which is still too much.  Once I used your suggestion to setup the custom toolbar then use a script step to instanciate it based on the user permissions, it works great in the Runtime.  It may be a designed in function, but with I use FMP11 to open the single item toolbar, it adds on "Tools".  I'm assuming so I can get to the toolbar if I need it to protect me from myself :)

            Thanks
