Smile Context Menus - Can I have more than 1 dynamic menu Word?

Windows 10 Office 365 (Business Standard)



Hi, it has been quite a while since I did this context menu and I would like to have more than 1 dynamic menu (context menu right click) - The macros work except when I add a second dynamic menu which does not show and the Custom XML is well formed.

Does anyone know if I can run more than 1 dynamic context menu please? It does not have to be case select as in the original dynamic menu. I just want more than 1 dynamic menu on the right click.

It will just contain another set of Templates or Macros and be:

rxRS1
rxRS2
rxRS3

I attach a word document with the vba and a page break and the Custom XML (well formed).

It may be just a simple NO you can't.


Many thanks

I haven't done this myself as yet so I'll be doing some experimenting on this but is there a reason you wanted a second dynamic menu instead of doing it all in one menu? It is dynamic after all.

If you experiment with the order the menus are called, does rxRS2dynamicMenuContent load if it is called first? Does that then preclude the other one from loading?

Ohh, I see what you have done. You CAN have more than one dynamic menu but you probably CAN'T have more than one section for the context trigger. This bit is where I believe you went wrong. See below for your current Ribbon code structure.
Code:
<contextMenu idMso="ContextMenuText">
  <dynamicMenu id="rxRS1DynamicMenu1" label= "MACROS"  getContent="rxRS1dynamicMenuContent" insertBeforeMso="Cut"/>					
</contextMenu>
'... lots of code
<contextMenu idMso="ContextMenuText">
  <dynamicMenu id="rxRS2DynamicMenu1" label= "NUMBERING" getContent="rxRS2dynamicMenuContent" insertBeforeMso="Cut"/>
</contextMenu>
What you should have is:
Code:
<contextMenu idMso="ContextMenuText">
  <dynamicMenu id="rxRS1DynamicMenu1" label= "MACROS"  getContent="rxRS1dynamicMenuContent" insertBeforeMso="Cut"/>					
  <dynamicMenu id="rxRS2DynamicMenu1" label= "NUMBERING" getContent="rxRS2dynamicMenuContent" insertBeforeMso="Cut"/>
</contextMenu>

Smile Dynamic Context Menu

Hi Guessed

I did this way back... but the right click has limits you can only have 10 (or less) and a second menu (Letter Fax) - that's it. They way I've written it anyway.

Case select is great for a few users who have different templates and macros.

I normally do my macros on an addin with split buttons (drop downs) but lately the virus programs seem to dislike the vba code in my addin so I thought I would make some changes.

I will try your suggestion and let you know - I thought I had it working but then it wasn't:
<contextMenu idMso="ContextMenuText">
<dynamicMenu id="rxRS1DynamicMenu1" label= "MACROS" getContent="rxRS1dynamicMenuContent" insertBeforeMso="Cut"/>
<dynamicMenu id="rxRS2DynamicMenu1" label= "NUMBERING" getContent="rxRS2dynamicMenuContent" insertBeforeMso="Cut"/>
</contextMenu>\\

Many thanks for taking a look.

</contextMenu>

Thank you works now and I can still use Case Select.
