Button Menu

Reduce the number of buttons on the screen with the button menu control

The Button Menu control allows you to have a button that shows a dropdown for the user to select different button choices. 


This is useful to organize your buttons so there isn't as much clutter on the screen. 

Configuring the Button Menu 

When you use the button menu in your own customizations, it is similar to creating a button, however, you will need to have actions for each button menu item.

Settings

  • Name: the name of the control
  • Load State: when the screen first loads, you can set the button to be 
    • Visible
    • Disabled (greyed out)
    • Hidden

Style

  • Text color: color of text
  • Background color: color of the text background


Actions/Events

Clicking on Menu Items will bring up a screen allowing you to configure the menu items for your button menu control.

Below is an example of configuring the menu items. On the left are all the button menu items (in the below example, four menu items have been created.)

To create a new menu item, you click Add menu item.

When you select a menu item from the list on the left, you can set the properties for that menu item:

  • Caption: The text that the user will see in the button menu
  • Click Actions: this will bring up the action editor and you can add actions to this particular menu item
  • Additional options - Is Visible: menu item will not appear in the button menu
  • Additional options - Is disabled: menu item will be greyed out in the button menu (user can see it, but cannot select it)
