4.2.1 The Classic UI Designer

With the UI Designer, you can create or modify the menus and toolbars that you use for the Classic interface mode. You can set up sessions to share the same customized menus and toolbars or you can set up unique menus and toolbars for each session.

After you customize menus and toolbars for a session and save these settings, you can apply them to other sessions. You can also import toolbars from Reflection 14 or Extra! sessions and then save them in InfoConnect .xumlfiles that can be applied to other sessions.

NOTE:For IBM sessions, only Extra! and InfoConnect Desktop toolbar files can be imported. For VT sessions, Extra!, InfoConnect Desktop, and Reflection 14 toolbar files can be imported.

The Design View displays a dynamic, graphical view of the menu and toolbars that you are creating or modifying. After you insert the controls, you can assign them to any of the actions supported by InfoConnect Desktop.

You’ll save your changes in a custom UI file (.xuml) that you can use with other session documents.

NOTE:If the currently selected Custom UI file is one of the built-in files that is included in the installation folder, InfoConnect automatically creates an editable copy of the built-in file and saves the copy with your modifications to the CustomUI folder in your InfoConnect user data folder This folder location is configurable using the Data Location tab during installation. The default is C:\Users\username\Documents\Micro Focus\InfoConnect. .
