FR - VP Panel Commands

Post by PointsWell »

I may be using AIM ni a manner that it was not designed for, but I use VPs as a way to build up complex screens. I create one VP that contains all the layouts that I need and then I use a second VP as the template into which I put the components. This allows me to use a standard three panel layout as a home screen and then insert into one of those panels another layout made of either one or more layouts so

What is missing is Display Layout. This means you have to create a process to populate the panel of one layout with the layout of another VP.

Also Start Process and Run Query are redundant in the Command List as these have their own dedicated insertion process from the main panel window:
