Hi everybody,

i have a problem with the Context menu.

For a particular addon, i want to dynamically load a number of menus according to certain values in the mask of SAP, for example the CardCode or ItemCode.

After a certain number of rightclickmouse, "event where i do call a function that create a new menu", SAP show the messagge "

Error: Menu - Not found [66000-27]" or Menu - Already exists !!.

I also tried to create menus with xml files, but I always get errors.

I think there is some problem with the unreleased memory.

This is an example:

This is an example:

Private Function AddMenu(ByVal mnu As String, ByVal subMnu As String, ByVal title As String, _

ByVal pos As Integer, ByVal tipo As SAPbouiCOM.BoMenuType, _

ByVal pathImg As String) As Boolean


Dim mnuItm As SAPbouiCOM.MenuItem = Nothing

Dim mnuItmNew As SAPbouiCOM.MenuItem = Nothing

Dim img As String = IO.Path.Combine(Application.StartupPath, pathImg)

If Not IO.File.Exists(img) Then img = ""

'Get father menu

mnuItm = SBO_Application.Menus.Item(mnu)

Dim oCreationPackage As SAPbouiCOM.MenuCreationParams

oCreationPackage = CType(SBO_Application.CreateObject(SAPbouiCOM.BoCreatableObjectType.cot_MenuCreationParams), SAPbouiCOM.MenuCreationParams)

With oCreationPackage

.Type = tipo

.UniqueID = subMnu

.String = title

.Enabled = True

.Checked = False

.Position = pos

End With

'Create new sub menu

If mnuItm.SubMenus IsNot Nothing AndAlso mnuItm.SubMenus.Exists(subMnu) Then


End If

mnuItmNew = mnuItm.SubMenus.AddEx(oCreationPackage)





Return True

Catch ex As Exception

SBO_Application.MessageBox("Error: " & ex.Message)

Return False

End Try

End Function

Public Sub New()



End Sub

Private Sub SBO_Application_RightClickEvent(ByRef eventInfo As SAPbouiCOM.ContextMenuInfo, ByRef BubbleEvent As Boolean) Handles SBO_Application.RightClickEvent

If eventInfo.BeforeAction Then

'1^ level

AddMenu("1280", "MYMENU_01", "My Main Menu", 1, SAPbouiCOM.BoMenuType.mt_POPUP, "")

'2^ level

AddMenu("MYMENU_01", "MYMENU_11", "Menu 1.1.0", 1, SAPbouiCOM.BoMenuType.mt_POPUP, "")

For i As Integer = 0 To 10

AddMenu("MYMENU_01", "MYMENU_1" & i.ToString, "Menu 1." & i.ToString & ".0", i, SAPbouiCOM.BoMenuType.mt_POPUP, "")

'3^ level

For j As Integer = 0 To 4

AddMenu("MYMENU_1" & i.ToString, "MYMENU_1" & i.ToString & j.ToString, "Menu 1." & i.ToString & ".1", 1, SAPbouiCOM.BoMenuType.mt_STRING, "")




If SBO_Application.Menus.Exists("MYMENU_01") Then SBO_Application.Menus.RemoveEx("MYMENU_01")

End If

End Sub

Thanks in Advance.

Check if the Menu Already Exsists then remove it and Add it.

i.e. Before Addtion of the menu...check and remove it


if (oMenus.Exists("M_EMPID"))

Thank you,

but I've tried this solution but there is always the error.

If you try to run my code in the example: ... \ SAP \ SAP Business One SDK \ Samples \ COM UI \ VB.NET \ 05.AddingMenuItems \ you can reproduce the error, just copy and paste the code.
