CNS Menu allows you to place hierarchal menus anywhere on a FileMaker layout. When a menu item is chosen, the script of your choice in the database of your choice is performed. Menus can have any number of sub menus and can be displayed with a variety of styles and bullet marks. Creating menus with CNS Menu is as easy as using as handing the plug-in a return delimited string of menu items to display. Your menu items can have a display name, and a value that can be used in your scripts, so the end user can see useful information such as a customer name while the value can be a Customer ID number.

CNS Menu ships with the "CNS Menu.fp7" example database which includes 15 examples demonstrating ways to use and understand the CNS Menu plug-in. The database is fully unlocked so you can explore every detail. We have also included the documentation for each example inline, so you can both examine the example and see its explanation all from one layout. Examples include, QuickMenu, Menu Placement, MenuBuilder, Value List to QuickMenu, Hidden Items, Menu Decoration, Mouse Grabber, Right Click, Data Entry, Layout Navigation, Update Menu Item, Bookmark Example, External XML Menu, and RSS Menu.

CNS Menu has many advantages over its predecessor, SCRIPTit. This rendition includes MenuBuilder in the configuration dialog which allows you to quickly build new menus without having to know XML. You can then simply use menus built in MenuBuilder in your database, or copy the XML which is generated for you. CNS Menu also includes a brand new way to create menus called "QuickMenus". A QuickMenu takes a return seperated list of items and creates a menu for you without having to know or use any XML.

What's New

Version 1.1.14:
  • Fixed issues with displaying menus on layouts with web views under FileMaker Pro 13 on Mac.
  • Fixed all known menu placement issues under FileMaker Pro 12+.
  • Added the ability to specify absolute coordinates (the kind you get from GetLayoutObjectAttribute) instead of layout coordinates (the way CNS Menu, and its predecessor, SCRIPTit, has always worked). To specify absolute coordinates, append an exclamation mark (!) to the end of the coordinates.

Requirements

  • OS X 10.5 or later
  • FileMaker 7.0v3 or later
