In Reply to: Delphi: Application Menu posted by Lionel on December 16, 2003:
: I have several applications that I have created using Delphi 7 and would like to create a Menu to call up each compiled application as needed. I have tried using the Delphi Menu Component but it is not what I am looking for. I am looking for a way to create a menu that will call up a set of compiled Delphi applications as needed. I have tried multiple forms and the Delphi Menu Component to call them up but this gets a little messy. Any suggestions?
Are you looking for a kind of "dynamic" menu, that adapts itself to include all the applications that are in a certain folder (or in its subdirectories)? For example:
c:\DelphiApps\ \Applic1\applic1.exe \Test3\test3.exe \Demo12\demo12.exe
Or maybe you want a datafile somewhere, with all the paths of the programs, and these have to appear in a menu? Or anything else?
Can you give some more details, such as: why is a Delphi menu component not suitable?
