Custom menus with submenus on HP-49g+?
Message #1 Posted by Antonio Maschio (Italy) on 12 Feb 2007, 2:30 a.m.

Hi,

I know how to customize a menu (editing CST or setting it with TMENU).

But how must CST be set to show a custom submenu, leading to another custom menu in the same directory?

For a lot of information, try: http://groups.google.com/groups/search?q=custom+(submenu+OR+sub-menu)+group:comp.sys.hp48.

I believe that the custom menu techniques apply to all 48 and 49 series, and perhaps the 28 series as well.

Regards,
James

Gene,

Looks like you updated all your training modules for the 50g. Nice work! Thanks to the training modules and the AUR you guys wrote, the 50g has a great set of documentation now. I can't thank you enough.

After surfing among your suggested sites, I managed the following CST:

{ ARCH REST READ ENGMODE MATHMODE HLP49.SD 
   { "_MATH"  
      { SIMPLIFY 
        { "INTG"  RISCH SIMPLIFY  } 
        { "DERV"  DERIV SIMPLIFY  } 
        { "HYP"  12.0100 MENU  } 
        ! 
        % 
      } TMENU  
   } 
   { "_KEYS"  
      { ASN DELKEYS RCLKEYS } TMENU  
   } 
}

ARCH and REST are two programs I wrote for backup and restore; ENGMODE and MATHMODE set up approx and other flags on the run to set a completely approx mode or a completely symbolic mode (both are little programs of mine). READ is the HeadMan library reader, HLP49.SD is the Bill Markwick help system (non CAS). Of course I plan to extend it: this is only a sort of general scheme.

Hope this one will help anyone needing it. It's a simple one-level submenu, but a two-levels submenu may also be set, nesting the CST one more level: this could make the listing hard to read and to correct, though... The menus have a prepended underscore, to simulate the submenu symbol; I remember here that this is not a real submenu implementation, but rather an on-the-fly menu substitution; on one-level submenus like this, a way-back key is not needed; maybe on two or more levels submenus, but I haven't clarify the tecnique to use to myself yet.

Greetings and thanks James and Gene

How about sharing your solutions here in the Forum?
Or are you planning to release them on hpcalc.org?
Congrats for your efforts.
Ciao.
Giancarlo
