Would love to open an ActionList Editor Window from the Source Editor Toolbar so I don't have to look for the component on the form.

Is there a way to do that ?

Alternative - the ActionListEditor Window should be saved with the project data so the ALEditor will be restored when a project is opened.

Hey FrankBKK,

Another way to access either the Menu editor or the Action List editor is to right click on the object that is listed on the object inspector when you have it on Tree View mode.

This does not require you to switch to Form View and you can access it when the Code View is active.

Granted, not a short cut nor a Toolbar button, but since you can have multiple Main Menus and Action Lists on the same form, would it be practical to have one button created for each instance of these objects, or would it make more sense to have the default context menu approach?

Hope this helps!

Thanks for this info Gus - not the perfect solution but certainly better than browsing through the forms ... ;-)
