Using Menus for Visual Studio Tools to launch ad hoc and custom applications


David Meego - Click for blog homepageThis is a reposting of an article I originally wrote on my Developing for Dynamics GP blog.

Back in July 2008, I was attending a Developer Toolkit training course run by my friend, Steve Gray. It was during this course that the idea for Menus for Visual Studio Tools was created. Being the geek I am, I had a prototype of the concept running the next day. That code eventually became what you know as Menus for Visual Studio Tools.

Recently, Steve emailed me the link to an article on the DynDeveloper.com site which demonstrates a very cool method of using Menus for Visual Studio Tools with an XML file to define external applications to be listed in the Microsoft Dynamics GP navigation model.

Please have a look at the article for the details:

Glad to see people working out cool things to do with the tool.
