Creating an Applet Menu

You can modify an applet menu that come predefined with Siebel CRM. You can also create a custom applet menu. The Applet Method Menu Wizard allows you to modify an applet method menu. To construct an applet method menu, Siebel CRM uses the menu items from the class to which the applet belongs and the super class of the applet. It also explicitly creates menu items for the applet. You can use the wizard to do the following:

  • Suppress inherited method menu items.
  • Resurrect inherited method menu items.
  • Create a new method menu item for an applet.
  • Delete a predefined method menu item of an applet.

To use the Applet Method Menu Wizard

  1. In Siebel Tools, choose the File menu, and then the New Object menu item.
  2. In the New Object Wizards dialog box, in the General Tab, click Applet Method Menu, and then click OK.
  3. In the Applet Method Menu dialog box, do the following:
    1. In the project window, choose the project that is defined in the Project property of the applet.
    2. In the applet name window, choose the applet you must modify, and then click Next.
  4. In the Applet Method Menu dialog box, do one of the following:
    • To display a menu item, move the item to the Selected Menu Items window.
    • To suppress display of a menu item, move it out of the Selected Menu Items Window.
  5. Do one of the following:
    • Click Finish.

      If you click Finish, then Siebel Tools saves all the changes that you made to the Siebel repository, displays the object definition for the applet in the Applets list, and exits this procedure.

    • Choose Create New Menu Item, and then click Next.

      If you choose Create New Menu Item, then Siebel Tools replaces the Finish button with the Next button.

  6. To create a new object definition for a method menu item, choose an entry from the Select the Command to be Executed by This Menu Item window.
