Question regarding to additional button (Scenario)
« on: July 13, 2009, 06:21:45 am »
Hi, every1,

I am a beginner in Linuxmce. I have some questions which related to the Scenarios.
Question 1:
Is it possible to change text of the button of the "Main Button"? Example: In stead of Lighting, Media, climate, telecom, security, I would like to change it to A,B,C,D,E. Or maybe add an additional group.

Question 2:
Can i make a button which will pop up a browser which connected to certain page?

(1) not without changing code and/or adding elements in Designer (see my screencasts), but why would you do it as you described, anyway?
(2) not as you're asking, but you can add a bookmark in the computing section.

Thanks for your fast reply. The ABCDE is merely an example  ;D. I am actually trying to add a new group button. Which i don't think suitable to any of the default groups.  ::) There is an "Advanced" group button which i can actually use it.. But I already added quite a number of buttons on it.. which make it looks weird.  :D...Anyway.. thx.

About the link.. I havnt to discover that part..  ;) Thx anyway..I will try on it 1st..

I get the feeling that you really don't understand this system and what its meant to do. There is probably a better whay to do whatever it is you are hacking together, but we cant give advice if you dont tell us the details.

You can fashion something like that, with Designer, and some code added to to the General Info Plugin (such as a new Open URL). The system is designed to be extremely flexible in this regard.
