The help is available on the Siemens PLM web site. Start with the following:
I may not have a license to compile into a .dll actually, I didn't realize that before. However, can I still run a journal from the menu? How could I do that?
Have a look through the MenuScript docs. With MenuScript, you can create your own custom menus; the new menu items can be used to fire off your own custom code (compiled .dll or journal).
Okay, so I am having trouble understanding exactly how I am supposed to do this. In the Documentation says there is a MenuScript API? I am not sure where that is? Are there other options as to ho I can do this, or os the API the only way to go?
What I am trying to do is place one of my journals on a network drive, so other people can run it through NX without having to open the journal in the journaling editor. I thought creating a button might be the better way to go.
NX version = ?
I'd suggest downloading the appropriate (ex-Rob Cohon) customized environment & look thru that to understand how to set up customizations on a network drive so all users share them.
Menuscript is documented (NX10 docs, similar places for other revs). Note in NX10 programming tools docs are not loaded by default, you have to specifically change one of the dialogs during install to get them
Programming tools -> Menuscript User's Guide
Production: NX10.0.3.5 MP16/TC11.2
I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
