Window Menu (Magic xpa 4.x)

Magic xpa lets you define a Window menu for your applications. This functionality allows for several tasks to be accessed via Menu entries and keyboard shortcuts.

To define a Window menu, you should do the following:

  1. Open the Menu repository.

  2. Zoom from a menu entry to the Menu Definition repository.

  3. Create a new line.

  4. From the Entry Type column, select Window List.

  5. In the Entry Name column, enter a name.

A program will appear in the Window list, when the Show in Window Menu form property evaluates to True.

The Window menu is not supported in Rich Client tasks.

Magic xpa also provides you with the following items, which help you take advantage of the Window Menu functionality:

Runtime Navigation Between Open Magic xpa Windows

The order that Magic xpa moves between the windows (when selecting Next or Previous from the Window menu) is based on the order defined by the Window sort by application property.

The end user can press Ctrl+Tab to navigate between open windows and also between tabs in the Tab control.

If you want the end user to be able to use the Ctrl+Tab to navigate the tabs in a Tab control, you have to remap either the Next Window or Previous Window internal event.
