NX2 Resource Bar

NX2 Resource Bar

NX2 Resource Bar

I'm trying to figure out how to edit the resource bar in UGNX-2.04.  What I want is to place another web-link in the resource bar without editing the other ones.  Is it possible to do this?  I can't find anything in the documentation.

RE: NX2 Resource Bar

Go preferences>palettes
You can see the contents of your resources bar.
You can add or edit new palette.

Hope this helps.

RE: NX2 Resource Bar

Thanks, I knew about that.  However, it's not letting me place another palette that links to a web address.  It's only letting me link to a directory.  Basically I'm going for something similar to the Internet Explorer link that's first on the Resource Bar.  I'm wanting to link to a website similarly to the way the IE tab works.

RE: NX2 Resource Bar

I may be wrong, but I think you can only link to one website.  There may be a way to customize it though.  I don't recall ever hearing about as of yet.  I'd check the documentation.

Hi Pattyd,
You can edit the existing IE page and add links to the page so that when you click on it,it will open the page you want.

Are you trying to connect to a web site? You can go from the same explorer.


RE: NX2 Resource Bar

Basically the way we've configured it is that the IE tab goes to our company's NX2 support site.  We'd like to add another palette link or another IE tab that links us to another website without getting rid of the other one.  It would confuse the issue if we put a link onto the support site, as this link doesn't apply to everyone in the company.  Sorry if it seems like I'm beating a dead horse, but I just don't know if I stated the question correctly.  If it isn't possible, that's fine, we can work around it, I just wanted to see if it was possible.

Thanks to everyone for helping me out.  I really appreciate it.
