Products -> Superbase Classic
is New in Superbase Classic
Add-Ons can now be added to the menu at start time
It is now possible to create add-ons that appear at the bottom
of the Program menu and which are loaded when Superbase starts.
This is only supported for the full Superbase product and Superbase
Personal. Add-ons are normally written in SBL and the effect is
as if the program has been RUN (clears any other program from memory
and loads and runs the selected program)
To integrate an add-on into the Program menu, the [AddOns] section
must be added to the SB30.INI if it is not already present and for
each add-on a line must be inserted according to the following pattern:
The parameter before the comma shows what text will be used for
the item on the menu and the parameter after the comma must be the
path name of the Superbase program file that will be run when the
menu item is selected. There can be a maximum of 8 add ons at any
one time on the menu. They can be numbered from 1 through 99, but
only the first 8 found will be used.
SuperView is a data mining and analysis tool that is completely
implemented in SBL, which is provided to owners of Superbase Classic.
It is available separately for owners of Superbase Personal. It
is not a redistributable component of the Superbase Runtime System.
There is a complete handbook for SuperView included in the online
documentation. In addition to its data mining and analysis capabilities
that will provide a great deal of information about existing data,
it can also be used for data cleaning, managing subgroups of data,
and using selection sets for various tasks, such as mail merge,
labels, and running existing reports.
