How to save my customized drop menu?

Recommended Posts

Hello Hypermesh experts,


I create my drop menu to call to my TCL script but I do not know how to save this drop menu.

Everytime I quit HM, I have to open the drop menu again.


variable top_menu
    set top_menu [hm_framework getpulldowns];
    catch {$top_menu delete [.hmMainMenuBar index "Demo"]}
    catch {destroy $top_menu.custom}

    menu $top_menu.custom -tearoff 0
    $top_menu insert 19 cascade -label "MyToolBar" -menu $top_menu.custom


Thank you for any recommendation and suggestion!

if it is read-only file, create your own hmcustom.tcl file, and make a shortcut to hmopengl.exe and edit it arguments like this:
