MenuSuites

What is a MenuSuite? MenuSuites are the objects that are displayed as User Menus. They differ considerably from the other object types we have discussed earlier. MenuSuites have a completely different structure; they are also maintained differently. In older versions of NAV, menus were constructed as versions of Form objects. With the release of Version 4.0, MenuSuites were offered as a way of providing a User Interface essentially similar to that found in the Outlook Navigation panel. MenuSuites are also maintainable in a limited way by the end user without any special license requirements. In addition, MenuSuites have the advantage of only showing the menu items that the user has permissions to access.

MenuSuite entries do not have maintainable properties or contain triggers. With the advent of MenuSuites, NAV developers lost the ability to embed C/AL code within the menus. The only customizations that can be done with MenuSuites is to add, delete, or edit menu entries. In a later Chapter, we will discuss more about how to work with (and around) MenuSuite constraints.
