18.2 Using Icons and Bitmaps on a Process Menu

If a Visual LANSA process menu (i.e. the Process Style is "MENU") is invoked, it will be presented something like this:

     

                                                                    

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB       IIIII                    

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB       IIIII <text description> 

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB       IIIII                    

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB                                

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB       IIIII                    

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB       IIIII <text description> 

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB       IIIII                    

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB                                

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB       IIIII                    

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB       IIIII <text description> 

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB       IIIII                    

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB                                

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB       IIIII                    

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB       IIIII <text description> 

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB       IIIII                    

        BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB                                

                                                                    

     

The area represented by the "BBBBBB"s is a bitmap that has been associated with the process, and the "IIII"s represent icons that have been associated with the options that may appear on the menu.

This section describes how bitmaps and icons are associated with processes and functions. Once this technique is understood, complete control of what bitmaps and icons appear on menus can be achieved.
