Syntax

Engine.GetRunTimeToolMenuItems ( [editArgsParam], reserved = 0)

Return Value

RunTimeMenuItems

Purpose

Returns a reference to a RunTimeMenuItems object. Use this method to determine the run-time text and dimmed state of menu items defined in the collection the Engine.GetEditTimeToolMenuItems method returns.

Remarks

TestStand maintains a collection of Tools menu items. You can obtain a reference to the collection using the Engine.GetEditTimeToolMenuItems method. You can also customize the contents of the Tools menu.

TestStand uses the menu items in the edit-time collection to generate a run-time version of the menu items. TestStand evaluates edit-time menu item expressions to determine the value of run-time properties, such as menu item text and whether menu items are enabled. TestStand excludes any edit-time menu items with hidden expressions that evaluate to False from the run-time collection. The run-time collection also contains expanded submenus for menu items using the ToolMenuType_SequenceFile type.

reserved As Long
