Hi there,


I am self-training to FileMaker with the Training Series for 12. in Module 9, there is a paragraph about contextual menu that could be completely vague with a little effort... or my mind is frozen . The paragraph reads:


To control the contextual menu provided when users Right-click (Windows) / Control-click (Mac OS), associate menu items with the commands that are presented in the standard FileMaker Pro contextual menus. While the script action and menu title you designate might be completely different from the original function of the command, your menu item will appear in the contextual menu wherever that command should and offer a high degree of customized functionality to your database. You cannot add, remove, or reorder menu items within this menu, you can only change the commands and actions associated with the existing items.


Sorry but I don't get:


  • what kind of customization I can do
  • how I could do it
