The editor is used to customize the command buttons, the tools menu and the contextual menus. Contextual menus are popup menus that are displayed when you hold down control and click the mouse. There are contextual menus in several places in the application including the user list.

To open the editor choose Customize from the tools menu. The editor has tabs for each area that can be edited.On each tab are buttons to add, delete and edit the items as well as a button to restore the default setup.

To add a new item press the Add button. That will display a dialog like this:

The description field contains the command that will be performed when you press the button or select the menu item.You can use all the elements of the ircII scripting language, including variables, functions and other commands. Please see the scripting chapter for more information on scripting.

The popup allows you to select a number of the most common variables and see what they mean. The Insert button will insert the variable in the description field at the cursor.

Command buttons

Command buttons are located below the user list and are enabled when there is a selection. The order of the command buttons can be changed by dragging the items around.

Tools menu

The tools menu is intended to mostly operate on selections in the user list but the items can be used at any time. The tools menu can contain hierarchical menus, and the description of each item may contain one or more periods to indicate the submenu level. The tools menu has a special placeholder for the channel menu.You should not change the name of this placeholder if you wish to keep the channel menu. The contents of the channel menu is defined in the favorite channels dialog.

The default tools menu has a number of submenus, including multi-level submenus. If you look at the tools menu while comparing to the editor display the procedure for creating submenus is quite obvious. In the following example you see the item called "Other" which has no description attached to it. That is a top level item that has a submenu. The following items are ".Whois" and ".Away" but with one leading period. That means they are item in the first level submenu of the “Other” item, and since ".Away" has no description that means it has a submenu.

Then comes "..Set Away..." and "..Set Back" with two leading periods. That means they are items in a second level submenu belonging to the ".Away" item.

Thus the submenu structure is directly reflected in the table by the number of leading periods.


Popup menus

Contextual menus, or simply popups, are displayed when you hold down the control key while clicking in the user list, channel list, channel, query or server message panels. To switch between the different menus use the popup button above the table.

The contextual menus use the same method as the tools menu to specify submenus.
