Ribbon Bar extensions

Ribbon Bar extensions

Ribbon Bar extensions

(OP)
Hi guys.

I am looking for the correct way of working to add additional buttons , galleries etc to an Excisting out of the box ribbon tab.
I know of course that with customize I can simply add this. But I want to edit the existing RTB such that the addtions are visible for ALL users and also be there with the next version of NX we will roll out.

I know there is the possibility to extend the menu files but if I'm correct this only goes for the Pull down menu. Is there something similar for the RTB files?

RE: Ribbon Bar extensions

Ronald,

The simplest way to add a "Company" tab to the Ribbon Bar, is define this variable ... UGII_SITE_DIR, pointing it to a folder ... (i.e.) U:\NX12\DesignStudio

You then create an "...\Applications\Profile"s folder and create your RTB, GRB and GLY files there.

Hi Phillpd.

This I know thanks! I would like to add additional galleries to an existing ribbon tab. (2D Layout tab) instead of creating a new additional one.
The galleries will only be used when in 2D layout.

Contacted Gtac for this.

Currently not possible but there is an existing ER-7731911

Quote (Gtac)

Enhancement Description: Please create a new mechanism to enable new buttons defined by menuscript add-on menufiles to be inserted into standard NX ribbon tabs using add-on files.
For example, the customer would like to add a custom button after the standard button UG_SKETCH_LINEAR_DIMENSION any time that button is shown in NX using only an add-on file ie. without copying and modifying any of the standard files that control ribbon content.
Currently this can be done using Roles but this has the same limitation as copying and modifying the standard files in that it does not work well for 3rd party plug-in suppliers.
