Add a webpage to your VISUAL toolbar for quick access

Let’s say you use MapQuest daily in your shipping department.  You can add the web page to the VISUAL toolbar. 

Make sure the line “UseToolbar=Y” is in your Visulal.ini file in the [Visual Mfg] section, as below:
[Visual Mfg]
UserToolbar=Y

If you don’t do this, you won’t see the buttons you will create.  

1. Log in as SYSADM

2. Go to Admin | Toolbar Maintenance from the Visual Banner

Each row in the table represents a button in the user toolbar, in a specific window

3. Click Insert to add a new row

4. Double click on the search icon  over the “Program Name” Column. 

5. Select the Shipping Entry  menu item, and click Ok

6. Fill out a row in the window as follows:
  •  Toolbar ID: Maps
  • Position: 1
  •  Tooltip: Map Quest
  •  Double click on the search icon at the top of the Bitmap column. (the search icon is a magnifying glass) 
  • Browse to the Visual Executable folder, and select a suitable bitmap.
  •  Find the path to a browser.  
    •     My entry to mapquest is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe www.mapquest.com
  •      Click Save
You now have an icon in the Shipping window!
