Change Application List (file based approach)

Hi,

 

is it possible to change the entries of the applications in the "Start" gorup with a file based approach?

I found the file "master.dtx" but how do I have to customize the list in a file or directory below UGII_SITE_DIR?

I know that I can use a custom role, but a file based approach would be nice.

 

Thanks,

Stefan

Re: Change Application List (file based approach)

Have you tried to put a custom DTX file where you put the old MEN or TBR Files?

Re: Change Application List (file based approach)

No I don't. Do you know what content this file should have?

Re: Change Application List (file based approach)

The Content it *should* have, should be up to you, shouldn't it? :-)

I would define a folder in my custom_dirs.dat file (or use one) and place a copy of that master.dtx file in it. Then I would try to modify it. The XML strutucture is quite self explanairy I think.
you will find the lines:

There could try to begin. (set the visbility to 0, or Change the order of the items)

Re: Change Application List (file based approach)

I put a copy in my "startup" directory where my .men files are.

I changed the visibility to 1.

It don't work.

 

Then I changed the <Content mode="create"> to <Content mode="edit">.

But I don't work.

 

Any idea?

Re: Change Application List (file based approach)

can you search in the syslog of the NX session for dtx? What DTX File is NX using?

btw: I would not change the content mode :-)

Re: Change Application List (file based approach)

Only one entry found in nx syslog:

NX loaded C:\PROGRA~1\CAX\NX10.0\ugii\menus\master.dtx file as INTERNAL data

This is not my changed file.

Re: Change Application List (file based approach)

so it seems to be trickier. I found out that the master.dtx I was looking at does not describe these Buttons because the order in the file is different than the buttons in NX...

Re: Change Application List (file based approach)

I now use a copy of UG_APP_MODELING.dtx

and added some lines to it:

This works for modeling.

After that I also chnaged the dtx files for drafting, gateway and sheet metal.

 

This works fine for me.
