Thank you for your question. Yes, I suspect the client language is the issue here. In order to insert a menu item at a particular position within a menu, we need to identify an ‘anchor’ menu item by caption. At this time Formativ contains only English menu caption definitions.

To work around this, you need to edit a text file that is part of Formativ. Assuming you are using GroupWise 6.5, the file is called ‘msgclass6_5.txt’, and will be found in the Formativ program files folder (The other supported version are named based on the supported version – it should be pretty easy to see which file goes with which version).

Open the file and look for a section that looks like this:

[GW.CLIENT.WINDOW.BROWSER]
Description=GroupWise Main Window
Toolbar=1
Popup=1
Events=0
Opened=5
Closed=5

The “#File=”New”,…” lines related to the main menu items. You would need to translate any of these entries you wished to use as anchors. It would not be necessary to edit all of them. For example, if you wanted to be able to add a menu to the ‘File’ menu after ‘Proxy…’, you would need to translate the “#File=”New”,…” line.

Once the file has been edited you would need to restart the GroupWise client, then define your menu integrations. You will also need to distribute this file with your solution.

I hope this helps.
