[ + ] This example explains how the list of last opened documents can be added to the application menu.
This insertion is performed via a class proposed in the "LastDocuments" component.
Four code lines are sufficient to insert the list of last opened documents into an existing application.
These processes can be found in:
- the declaration code of the global variables of the main window,
- the code of the OpenDocument procedure,
- the code of the menu options "File 1" to "File 10".
The example has been simplified regarding the number of features (text files only) in order to highlight the use of the component.
