    Hello. Is it possible to create a new toolbar button (Menu list) with a drop-down and add items to the menu? Similar to the Schedule New Appointment icon with drop-down.

    I have a system built with custom views for about 14 resources and it will be too many toolbar buttons to list them across.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Thank you for your question above. Unfortunately, GroupWise does not offer a way for third parties to add menu list buttons to the GroupWise client.

    We have addressed this type of problem in the past by creating an applet that displays a form listing all the available forms/view/options. The user then selects the appropriate option, at which time the secondary applet is chained by the first. (This assumes you are using Formativ 2.0 – 1.6 dosn’t support applet chaining). In this way you only have one button on the toolbar, but your UI can present any number of secondary options.

    For information on applet chaining, see the ‘Applet Chaining’ topic in the Developers Guide.

    I hope this helps.
