Ariadne - Technical description


Main menu


For the Ariadne menu, the active-X applet Treeview is used (with the associated applet Imagelist). The menu structure is loaded in Treeview at start up, on basis of a query on the table T732-Menu-item. In this way, menus can be configured dynamically. At a click on the menu item, the associated command line in T720-Function is looked up, and executed.

Remark: For the Treeview applet (v.6.0) on different PCs there are different versions around of the containing MSCOMCTL32.OCX Active-X library. In order to get the Treeview applet working correctly, when implementing Ariadne on a new PC, it may be necessary to remove the applet form F010-Menu and to reconfigure it anew.
