The following instructions assume you have created one or more menus and that you want to create and attach a submenu to one of the items in one of the menus. With this method you create the submenu and attach it as part of a single procedure. Another method for accomplishing this task is to create the menu as described in "To Create a Menu" and to attach it to a menu item as described in "To Attach an Existing Submenu to a Menu Item" . Use whichever method is most convenient.
When you create and attach a submenu you will be using two editors--one to create the menu and the other to attach the submenu to the menu item. If you start this procedure in the Menu Property Editor, you will be attaching the submenu in the Menu Property Editor but creating it in the Revolving Property Editor. If you start the procedure in the Revolving Property Editor, you will be attaching the menu there but creating it in the Menu Property Editor. The example below assumes you are starting the procedure in the Menu Property Editor.
Display the Menu Property Editor by choosing Menus from the Editors menu of the App Builder primary window.
In the Objects list select the menu that contains the menu item to which you want to attach a submenu.
In the Items list select the menu item to which you want to attach a submenu.
Choose Create New Menu from the Item SubMenu menu.
The Revolving Property Editor will be displayed, with the new menu selected in the Objects list.
Edit the menu and click OK to apply the editing changes you made and to dismiss the Revolving Property Editor
See "To Edit a Menu" for instructions. You can edit the menu later if you like.
Click Apply in the Menu Property Editor to attach the submenu to the menu item selected in Step 2. See "Connecting Menu Items to Actions" for instructions for making the submenu functional.
