Start Menu button

See Also: Adding Cascading Folder Content to your context menus

See Also: Button-Explorer

This button is an example of the Go FOLDERCONTENT command which was added in Directory Opus 9.

The button expands into the contents of your Start Menu, displaying the merged contents of the /start and /commonstartmenu folders.

Here's the command itself:

Go PATH /start|/commonstartmenu FOLDERCONTENT=nomenusel

Here's the button XML if you want to paste it on to your toolbar:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<button backcol="none" display="both" label_pos="right" textcol="none">
	<label>Start Menu</label>
	<icon1>#newmenu</icon1>
	<function type="normal">
		<instruction>Go PATH /start|/commonstartmenu FOLDERCONTENT=nomenusel</instruction>
	</function>
</button>

The button will expand where you place it, so you'll probably want to put it into a submenu. Here's some XML with it already in a sub-menu, which you can paste directly to your toolbar, if you wish:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<button backcol="none" display="both" textcol="none" type="menu">
	<label>Start Menu</label>
	<icon1>#gostartmenu</icon1>
	<button backcol="none" display="both" label_pos="right" textcol="none">
		<label>Start Menu</label>
		<icon1>#newmenu</icon1>
		<function type="normal">
			<instruction>Go PATH /start|/commonstartmenu FOLDERCONTENT=nomenusel</instruction>
		</function>
	</button>
</button>


I've updated the top post, adding the extra "nomenusel" parameter which is required in newer versions of Opus, and also merging all the useful information from the old questions & answers that were below it.

How did I miss this?! Thanks Leo!

Thanks for reporting that. It will be fixed in 12.20.1 (first beta after 12.20).
