The Help menu is shown both in the Builder and Viewer and by default includes the following entries:
- Change Password
1. Default Menu Items
1.1. Change Password
The Change Password item will allow a user to change their password.
This menu item will pop-up a window showing the current version product documentation. As this uses the Edge public documentation website then this feature requires an Internet connection.
The About menu provides general information about the versions of AppBoard and its associated components.
Information provided in the About menu includes the following:
- enPortal Version
- enPortal Build #
- AppBoard Version
- AppBoard Build #
- Tomcat Version
- Operating System
- Java Version
- Installed Product Integration Modules
2. Customizing the Menu
It's possible to change the items shown in the help menu which can prove useful in a production environment where the Help (link to product documentation) and About items may not be of use to the actual end-users. Also it's possible to add new items for convenience.
The following file shows the XML configuration for the menu:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <configuration> <obj className="appboard.actions" id="viewerActions"> <association name="actions"> <obj className="appboard.actions.Action" label="Change Password" href="/enportal/servlet/pd/vdir/system/user/password/Change Password" /> <obj className="appboard.actions.Action" label="Help" href="http://edgedoc.edge-technologies.com/docs/appboard/2.5" /> <obj className="appboard.actions.Action" label="About" href="/enportal/servlet/pd/vdir/system/appboard/About" /> </association> </obj> </configuration>
By default this file is included in full archives of the system and will be retained when upgrading.
