Simulation Menu Builder
Accurate and interactive menus can mean the difference between an
amateur simulation and a professional, realistic simulation. But,
the current ToolBook simulation recorder does not have the ability to automate the
building of menus.
This limitation is a thing of the past now with the Simulation Menu
With the Simulation Menu Builder tool you can create
accurate and interactive menus while working right in your ToolBook application.
That is why this is a
"must have" tool for every ToolBooker that develop

What is the Simulation Menu Builder?
The Simulation Menu Builder is
a ToolBook Widget that you drag from the Catalog and drop on your ToolBook
page. The Extended Properties Editor is a program that will create images for the
menu. The following image is an example of the ToolBook runtime cascading
Text menu, notice how I have a typo (it was an accident, I have
intentionally not fixed it so you can see the level of control you have
with the menu builder :-)
Why Do I Need the
Simulation Menu Builder?
- Professional, Realistic Menus If you want to create interactive and professional menus that match
your simulated interface program then this is the easiest way to do
- Eliminate Frustrating Screen Captures
If you are frustrated with having to repeatedly capture the live
menu with the mouse over each option and then having to chop up these
images so you have all the appropriate images for all of the options,
well here is the answer - no more frustrations.
- No Programming Necessary All of the programming work has been done for you. You just
open up the Extended Properties Editor and start
creating your menus! To create this type of a menu building system on your own would
take you days or probably weeks - that's what it took me to create the
- High Return on Investment The
Simulation Menu Builder will easily pay for itself with your first
How Does the Simulation Menu Builder Work During
The Simulation Menu Builder is easy to use during development.
Drag and drop the Sim. Menu Widget onto your page and the Extended
Properties Editor will automatically open.
This is the main screen where you enter the text for each option, here we
see the runtime ToolBook View menu.
The following is the menu created from the
The image below shows how we can create very complex menus, this is an
example of the standard ToolBook Instructor Right Click Menu. I will
be producing some online training for ToolBook Developers and will be
using the Simulation object to demonstrate, allow you to practice and
subsequently assess your training. The following menu will be used
extensively in my training packages:-)
Who Developed the Simulation Menu Builder?
I am the creator of the Simulation Menu Builder. Actually this product
was originally developed in version 6.5 for Native only and was going to
be call "Popup Menu Builder." Recent simulation projects
I have worked for fellow ToolBookers have convinced me of the need for the
Simulation Menu Builder. I found that creating menus
the simulated interface is extremely time consuming. Using the Simulation Menu Builder I
can save many hours. I'm sure that you will find that the product will
pay for itself in no time at all.
