Drop down menu from shapes
« on: February 10, 2015, 03:36:19 PM »
Hey I was just wondering if visio has the feature of drop down menus from the shapes if one were to make a chart in visio. If so how can I do this?

Hi,
Try enabling Actions section in a shape's shapesheet.
The actions section has the ability to provide a drop down selection of actions and/or attributes when the user right clicks on the shape.

And can invoke panels for more details by using docmd(1312) either in the actions cells or in the double click cells.

From there you can get slick and control which props are shown based on action.   aka a subset of all props...like all network props or all storage props or all inventory props.

Hi,

Also, I wrote a post on context menus a while ago that might be useful:
