Can we use application's variables inside the Menu control's items?

Hi David

Would it be possible to use variables in the Menu.Items property in the menu control ?

ie.
Rather than have an item "<span class="glyphicon glyphicon-info-sign"></span> MyApp"

Can we use something "<span class="glyphicon glyphicon-info-sign"></span> [App.ID]" ?

Or is there some way we can parse these ourselves?


This is my favourite quote.

Hello fakie,

I am sorry, but, after take a look, apparently is not possible to get something exactly like you wanted at designtime. On the other hand, there is no problem to place a code like this to set the Menu's first item (for example) at runtime:

ArraySetItem "[Menu1.Items]" "0" "<span class=\x22glyphicon glyphicon-info-sign\x22></span> [App.ID]"

ArraySetItem "[Menu1.Items]" "0" "<span class='glyphicon glyphicon-info-sign'></span> [App.ID]"

Works as well.

Hello,

Well, yes. In fact the double quotes escapes are automatically does by the action's editor. If you use single quotes there is OK too.
