When You Create or Add Menu Files

Sometimes an application must use more than one menu file to provide access to all of its menu options. If an application’s menus need to change at various points in the execution of the application, calling a new menu file is usually the best way to make the change.

You can create new menu files for an application or add existing menu files to an application through the VPM Enterprise Menu Builder. Earlier sections of this chapter show you how.

However, creating or adding a menu file to the VPME Menu Builder is only part of what you must do to get the menu into your application. You must also insert code into your application to call the menu file when it is needed. The “When You Create or Add Menu Files” section of the Menus chapter in the Technical Reference manual shows you how to call a new menu when you need it.
