Application.SetupMenu allows you to customize the Stonefield Query menu, such as adding or removing functions.

The menu system is referenced with an object passed as the second parameter to the code. Top-level menu items, such as File, Edit, and Tools, are called "pads" and are referenced by members of the menu named with the English caption for the pad followed by "Pad." For example, the File pad is referenced by toMenu.FilePad. The names of the pads and their bars are shown in the following table.

To add a menu item (called a "bar") to a menu, call the pad's AddBar method, passing it the name (not caption) of the bar. You can then set properties of the bar object returned by AddBar. A bar object has the following properties:

  • cBarPosition: specifies where the bar is placed. Blank means the end of the menu, "before BarName" means before the specified bar, and "after BarName" means after the specified bar.

  • cCaption: the caption for the menu item. Use "&" in front of a letter to indicate that letter as a hot key for the bar. Required.

  • cOnClickCommand: the expression to execute when the item is chosen in the menu. This will normally call a script you create. Required.

  • cPictureFile: the name of an image file to display in the menu (optional; if it isn't specified, no image is displayed).

  • cSkipFor: an expression that indicates when the item should be disabled; leave it blank if it's always enabled.

  • lVisible: set this to false to hide the bar.

After adding bars to a pad, call the pad's Show method to redisplay the menu.

A reference to the Stonefield Query Application object and a reference to the menu system object.

Return Value
Any value (Stonefield Query ignores the return value).

Here's an example taken from Stonefield Query for Sage Pro ERP that adds a "Import Report Writer reports" bar named FileImportFF to the File pad. cOnClickCommand is set to ImportFF, which calls a custom script with that name.

Visual FoxPro

lparameters toApplication as SQApplication, toMenu
local loBar
loBar = toMenu.FilePad.AddBar('FileImportFF')
with loBar
    .cBarPosition    = 'before FileExportReport'
    .cPictureFile    = 'importxpsmall.bmp'
    .cCaption        = 'Import ACCPAC Report &Writer Reports...'
    .cOnClickCommand = 'ImportFF()'


Here's an example that hides the Schedule Report and Formulas functions in the Tools pad.

Visual FoxPro

lparameters toApplication as SQApplication, toMenu
toMenu.ToolsPad.ToolsScheduleReport.lVisible = .F.
toMenu.ToolsPad.ToolsCalcEditor.lVisible = .F.
