Menu Options

When a user performs certain functions, such as adding a new record, I want my application to do certain things, either before or after this action takes place. The only way I know how to accomplish this is to write a script and provide a button that the user can click to execute it.

My problem is that if the user selects the New Record option from the Records menu or uses the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+N, my script is altogether sidestepped.

Now, I can instruct users to always use my button rather than the menu option but that seems like a rather unprofessional solution to me. What do other developers do to overcome this problem?

Look at SecureFM plug-in from New Millenium. http://www.nmci.com. This allows you complete control over menus and keyboard shortcuts. I usually remove all menus and shortcuts so that the user must use the buttons I provide.

The version for FMP 7 is due out soon and a beta is available.
