Chapter 9. Extending the Interface with Scripts > Creating a Main Menu Layout

Creating a Main Menu Layout

If you have a very large or complex database with several files and dozens of layouts, the simple task of navigating from one place to the next can become difficult. A button bar can help, but once your database gets really cumbersome, all the buttons you need will take up too much space in a layout—space you need for real work. When this happens, you can create a Main Menu layout that contains only buttons. The buttons will take you to the most important layouts (like Data Entry) or execute scripts that search or print reports. Each of the other layouts in the database need contain only one button that returns you to the Main Menu.
