This is an example how to make DxD Popup "Hyperlink" effect to work in automation.


Enclosed zip contains all example files.


I've taken Open_datasheet.vbs from the TechNote mg72436. It contains an example of getting DATA_SHEET property.

Take care of the Acroread command "AcroRd32.exe in the of the script if needed.


scripts.ini contains the execution of the tky_menu.vbs


tky_menu.vbs contains ViewDataSheet menu add to existing Edit menu. A personal menu (which is the most clever for this kind of purposes) seems to be impossible to use with ExecuteMenuCommand.

At least I could not make it to work. If anybody knows how to to do it please let us all know.


ExecuteMenuCommand.vbs contains Application.ExecuteMenuCommand("EditViewDataSheet") which does the trick.
