Repository methods on Find menu

Jun 29, 2012 at 1:21 PM

I have a number of large lookup lists that shouldn't be [Bounded] (dropdowns).

In the UI, under the find menu, it displays my repository methods as a sub menu to a top level menu item named after the repository.

So: Find > My Repository > My Find Method

I would like to display it as: Find > My Find Method

I.e. For all these cases, it will be extra pain for no gain for the users to have to go through to a sub menu.

Can I do this with NO MVC without hacking something?

I don't think there is any way to make the actions appear without a sub-menu directly (without hacking the code).  However, it should be possible to make it appear that way to the user just by fiddling with the CSS  -  as you are only applying it to the Find menu.  You could render all the sub-menu actions within the main Find menu, and either make the sub-menu title invisible, or very small.

Mm. Ok. That sounds workable. Thanx much.
