Hello everyone,

I've recently found out about the Themed Controls project, and i must say it's a great overhaul to VFP's user interface.

I'm wondering if anyone used the OutlookNavBar to replace an application's standard main menu, for example to take data from a table and populate a treeview inside the outllok bar, and then bind all menu actions to the click event of the treview nodes.

¿Am i thinking right?

Cheers to all.

Yes, I have done that. It's easy to do because the panels for the OutlookNavBar can contain any control, including ActiveX such as a TreeView. I presented a session on this at Southwest Fox 2008; see the "Creating Explorer Interface" video link at http://www.swfox.net/2008/videos.aspx for an example.
