adding custom button to ACT! toolbar and Menubar

Hi,

 

Is it possible to add a custom button to Tool bar programmatically? If it possible please tell me how to do this.

 

I am able to add it using "Tools-->Customize--> Menus and Toolbars"

 

Thanks in Advance.

 

Thanks and Regards

Maybe have a look in the SDK for the ActToolBarButton in the Act.UI Namespace

Mike,

Thank you very much for your reply.

 

I checked for that in ACT.UI namespace but no luck so far.

 

I downloaded a product "ExcelTemplateforAct" from Act website. After installing that product on my machine I got a custom button "Excel Templates" on the Toolbar. How can we achieve this. Can we achieve this using Installshield?

 

Please help me. Thanks in Advance.

 

Thanks and Regards

Mike,

 

I didnt search in .chm file.

 

I referenced ACT.UI.dll to my application and searched in the classes of this namespace.

 

After installing a product in my system I got a custom button on the toolbar. How can we achieve this.

 

Please help me.

 

Thanks and Regards

Have you got the SDK?

 

In ACT2008.chm, search for ActToolBarButton - all the details are there

Thank you very much Mike,

 

I dont have Act2008 sdk.

 

I am using Act version 10.0.1.199. The Act.UI dll is not showing any class ActToolBarButton.

 

I have another question, when we integrate the an application to act using custom button, how can we get the current credentials and database?

 

Thanks and Regards
