maxinterface.json question

July 5, 2009 | 11:20 pm

I’m trying to add a "Check for Updates…" item to the Help menu of a standalone I’ve built.

In the maxinterface.json file, I have done the following:

In the "commands" section, I have
{ "message" : "phonehome",
"label" : "Check for Updates…",
"target" : "max",
"href" : "http://website.com"
}

In the "menus" section, I have added "phonehome" to both the "commands_runtime_mac" and "commands_runtime_windows" "Help" menus.

When I launch my standalone, I see Check for Updates… under the Help menu, but it doesn’t launch the web browser and go to the URL. Any suggestions on what I’m missing? Thanks.

Bump–anybody?

You’ll have to use menubar object. I doubt that there’s a way to change the Help menu easily though.

Yeah, that’s what I was running into. I can put the item under another menu prompt, I just thought it made more sense under the Help menu like many other programs do. Thanks.
