Menu bars in IE

Hi,

unfortunately, I have removed the menu bar in QV Accesspoint in IE  Plugin.

Currently I am not able to see any QV related objects in the menu bar.

Bcoz of that, i cant do clear, back, Forward selection......

Could any one help me to bring the QV menu bar in the accesspoint.

thanks in advance.

Re: Menu bars in IE

Hello gopinathanl

i was searching for "how to disble the menu bar" and found the quick solution to right click on the bar and uncheck the "Navigation" to hide the menu bar.

once hidden i couldnt find a way to unhide it.

thats when i found your question.

after a few clicks here and there, i found this solution

which works on my application

Right click on any sheet (not on any object, some plae where there are no objects) --> Customize toolbar --> Toolbar --> check the Navigation,  to get back the Menu Bar,

hope this works for you as well,,,

regards

Leo V.

Re: Menu bars in IE

Hi Leo,

But it will remove the Menu bar entirely and will not be available for any of the other Webpages.

Re: Menu bars in IE

Ignore the above reply.But how it can done for all the users(Automated way) and if some of the user preference has to be enabled at all user level. How this can be achived. Since we could find if you enable some settings in the Qlikview client-User preference and still it is not updated in the menu user preference resulting in unexpected output... Any suggestions.

Re: Menu bars in IE

sorry, but I havent found a way to automatically do it for all users.

all the posts that i went to, had editing the registry entry ( which is per user , and not for all users).
