Creating Menu Buttons
Click "Database" from main menu, click "Catalogs".
Select the catalog you wish to create/modify form menus, click "Form Menus" button.
A record details window may have
its own menu buttons placed on left side of the form, which allows you to access "related records" from other catalogs easily.
Every menu item represents a relationship with current catalog with another catalog.
If you cannot see any side menu item other than the default "General" button, this means that you either
haven't created a relationship with another catalog,
or you haven't created a menu button.
Creating Menu Buttons
The available data sources for which a menu button can be created are listed in a box on left side.
If the current catalog you wish to create menu for, has relationships with other catalogs, they are listed
on top of this box in a form like "Current Catalog > Related Catalog" (see picture above).
You may easily create a menu button by simply selecting a relationship and clicking "ADD" button.
Example: Assume that there is already a relationship between "Companies" and "People" catalogs
where each company record may be related to any number of selected workers picked from "People" catalog.
If you select the line "Companies > Employees" (see picture above) and create a menu button,
Clicking that button will immediately display the list of related people (ie workers) of that company.
Removing Menu Buttons
You may remove a menu button easily by selecting it from the installed menu item list and clicking
remove button. This action is safe as it does not affect actual records in your database. However,
if there are views or filters
associated with this menu item, they will also be deleted from database.
Adjusting Order of Menu Buttons
Select the menu item from the installed menu item list, click the up or down arrows repeatedly
until the menu item is placed in the desired position.
Creating Views For Menu Buttons
You may create shared views for the record lists a menu button is displaying.
Note that creating views for menu buttons is optional as if you do not create views,
SpeedBase will automatically use existing views created for the target catalog.
