|Subject: ||[AV\ Sum: Menu System

ArcView -- www.quantdec.com
Apologies for this belated sum. I'ts just taken me some time to implement
the information I received and get it working.
My original question is listed below, with a paraphrased version of the
answer which worked best for me.
My agency has, in the past, made use of an automated menu system for our
planners and other non-techniical staff to use to create maps for
themselves. This menu system was created using a large number of related
aml's and menus for ArcInfo. I have been assigned the task of doing
something very similar,
with as much the same look as possible, in Avenue for our staff in my new
department. My idea is to have a series of menus with radio buttons,
checkboxes, etc for staff
to pick and choose any combinations of features (roads, streams, demographic
data, aerial imagery, etc) to create a map in a layout. I would like users
to be able to open this menu, make selections, and have the correct layout
created without having to create a view of their own with the desired
features. Is this possible?
If so, is it okay to have them access this from another menu box which is
opened from a view window? If anyone has done something similar, examples
and/or ideas are
greatly appreciated. The less reinventing I have to do, the better.
Ryan Dalton has an outstanding tool which I borrowed, called Custom Themes.
This does exactly what I and my users were looking for. It was quite simple
into the menu system I developed, and as mentioned, it got rave reviews. I
simply created a database
file which is accessed by Ryan's extension. Very nice
Thanks to Ryan for his time and effort.
Here is a link to his Custom Themes extension:
