Overview
Each Table control found in a window proposes a menu to the user.
This menu, available without programming, proposes several actions:
  • Export to Word or to OpenOffice (depending on the software installed on the user computer).
  • Export to Excel or to OpenOffice Calc (depending on the software installed on the user computer).
  • Export to XML.
  • Copy the row or the table.
  • Create a chart for representing data.
  • Print the table (see AAF for printing a table).
  • Select several table columns:
    To simplify the menu, only the first 32 columns are visible in the menu. Furthermore, only the columns with a title are proposed.
Example of chart automatically generated by the popup menu of a Table control:
This menu allows the user to easily perform several processes not necessarily planned in the application:
  • Export to an external Excel, Word or XML file.
  • Ability to display or hide the columns (to limit the size of the menu, only the first 32 columns are displayed).
  • Automatically generate a chart from the data found in a table.
    Note: you cannot select the columns that will be included in the chart. To choose some specific table columns, we advise you to create a new chart from the Table control displayed in a window.
Notes:
  • You have the ability to add choices to this menu by programming. To do so, use ..PopupMenu.
  • When exporting a table via the popup menu, the merge of columns is ignored.
  • Horizontal table: The menu of AAFs does not contain the options used to perform an export to an external Excel, Word or XML file.
Setting

Configuring the automatic menu in a table

The popup menu of the table can be disabled. To configure the display of the popup menu associated with the table, you must:
  1. Open the description window of the table.
  2. Select the "GUI" tab.
  3. Choose the requested menu in the "Popup Menu" combo box. You can:
    • "Display the menu of AAF (System)": In this case, the popup menu displayed will be the automatic menu of the table (Menu of AAF). See Configuring the menu of AAFs for more details.
    • "Add a popup menu": If this option is checked, you will have the ability to select the custom popup menu to display.
Notes:
  • If both options are checked, the custom popup menu can be added before or after the menu of AAFs.
  • If no option is selected, no popup menu will be selected. The <Disabled> option will be displayed in the description window.
  • ..PopupMenu can also be used to delete the popup menu specific to the AAFs and to go back to the standard Windows menu for a specific control.
