Details

EA_MenuClick events are received by an Add-In in response to user selection of a menu option.

The event is raised when the user clicks on a particular menu option. When a user clicks on one of your non-parent menu options, your Add-In receives a MenuClick event, defined as follows:

 

Sub EA_MenuClick(Repository As EA.Repository, ByVal MenuName As String, ByVal ItemName As String)

 

The code below illustrates an example of use:

 

   If MenuName = "-&Diagram" And ItemName = "&Properties" then

       MsgBox Repository.GetCurrentDiagram.Name, vbInformation

   Else

       MsgBox "Not Implemented", vbCritical

   End If

 

Notice that your code can directly access Enterprise Architect data and UI elements using Repository methods.
