Menu command script (property)
For automation interface information about the Menu Command Script property (Script, Script Text or Text through the automation interface), see the automation interface topic for a Script in the Related Topics. When you add a new Menu Command entry on the Menu tab of a Stereotype's Property Pages, Modeler creates a Script object for the Stereotype through the Owned Menu Script association. The Script Type of the Script object is set to MenuCommand. The Script object is used to record the Menu Command Script. Note that Stereotype owned Scripts are not shown in Modeler.
This property specifies the VisualBasic script for a menu command script.
For more information about working with VisualBasic menu command scripts for a Stereotype, see Script functions, attributes and objects - menu command scripts.
By default, the Menu Command Script property is blank.
You use the Code Editor to edit Menu Command Script code. The Code Editor language is always Visual Basic when editing Menu Command Script code, irrespective of the Language that is set for parent Packages and the Model. For information about the Code Editor, including setting the code language to use, see Overview of the code editor.
This property is set on the Menu tab of a Stereotype's Property Pages. To change the script, select the required entry, and then click the Edit Script button.
When you add a new menu command entry, the Has Script column displays No. After editing the script (even if you leave the script blank), the Has Script column displays Yes.
To write scripts you require a good working knowledge of the VBScript language, the Modeler Meta Model and the Modeler Automation Interface. If you run a script that has errors, those errors can corrupt Modeler model data and make Modeler crash.
