Re: custom contextual menus

Oh yes, I see, pardon, now that I look at it again, so a contextual menu only inside my app, will only be available to my app, and no where else. where as system wide, (say a utility for launching an app or performing a scripted function) would be available even as sort of a standalone context menu....

Hi, thanks for the reply, I was hoping to find a method of using it from within a standalone app, I was looking at some other methods of doing that, I just could not find anything in black and white, on creating a custom contextual menu item, thanks for any suggestion, I appreciate it,

Re: defining path to video files

Thank you for that reply, I appreciate the link, I do seem to remember that many of my app broke some time ago but I did not find the cause of it,
