How to Add Buttons to Function Key Panel

Post by zigzigzig » 20 Oct 2017, 04:40

Hello All,

I'm on a project trying to apply styles as globally as possible. I would like to create a button for each page that when clicked allows the user to print the screen. Currently I have the function key panel set to the right and would also like this button to appear within that panel. Is this possible? And as this is a user defined extension, am I able to style it via AutoGui+? (note: the logic to print the screen is not an issue, i'm simply confounded by the styling/location of the button itself)

Thanks,
zzz

Hi,

It is not possible at this stage to add a user defined button to the function key panel.
We will be enhancing this in the next version.

You can add a button on every screen by using AutoGui+ and creating a rule similar to the TOP_BANNER rule (with a push button extensions instead).
In a nutshell you must use the keyword _AX_ONCE_ in the identification rules for the target and this will put a button "once in every screen".

Hope this helps
Regards,

Hi Safal,

A button panel extension has been added in v4.1.1 which allows you to add customs buttons.
