Chapter 19. Customizing the Visio User Interface Under Automation

IN THIS CHAPTER

  • The Size and Persistence of UI Customization

  • Modifying the Existing UI

  • Menus

  • Toolbars

  • Using External UI Files

There will be times in developing your applications when you will need to customize the Visio user interface (UI). For example, your solution may call for a very tightly limited subset of the tools to be found on the toolbars and menus due to your users needing only three or four specific tools to accomplish a repetitive subset of tasks. It might be that your application wants to add additional menu items and toolbars to the Visio UI. Do note, however, that if your solution is to be used in conjunction with or in addition to the concurrent usage of solutions shipping with Visio right out of the box, it most probably is not a good idea to customize the UI, as this will cause confusion on the part of the users of the in-box solutions as well as the users of your solution.
