I am trying to add a dropdown control with dynamic values to the main toolbar of any screen, next to Actions or  Reports menu.

Any idea or suggestions?

Here’s an example for you Krunal:


public MyGraph()

public PXAction<SomeDAC> MyMenu;
[PXUIField(DisplayName = "My Menu")]
[PXButton(MenuAutoOpen = true)]
protected virtual IEnumerable inquiresMenu(PXAdapter adapter)
return adapter.Get();

public PXAction<SomeDAC> Item1;
[PXUIField(DisplayName = "Item 1", MapEnableRights = PXCacheRights.Select, MapViewRights = PXCacheRights.Select)]
public virtual IEnumerable item1(PXAdapter adapter)
throw new PXException("Item 1 clicked!")

public PXAction<SomeDAC> Item2;
[PXUIField(DisplayName = "Item 2", MapEnableRights = PXCacheRights.Select, MapViewRights = PXCacheRights.Select)]
public virtual IEnumerable item2(PXAdapter adapter)
throw new PXException("Item 2 clicked!")

Hi Gabriel,

Thanks for your reply. I am not looking for Menu item but instead looking to add the dynamic dropdown, something like Sales Order Status to the main toolbar.

For example, in below image, I have a dropdown “Select” which I want to move in main toolbar area. Not sure if it is even possible.

Hi @KrunalDoshi ,

As per my knowledge, this is NOT possible (I may be wrong here), as all the controls should be bind to the FormView.


Can you please explain the scenario/requirement, to have this dropdown on the tool bar?

@Naveen B is right, now possible, and would break UI/UX concepts used elsewhere in Acumatica anyway.

Thanks @Gabriel Michaud and @Naveen B 

It was worth a post to see if anyone has any idea there. Normal dropdown on the form would do it for now.
