Change Menu Label

Hi All,

We are developing MI application on AWT framework. Just wanted to know whether

there is any way to change Menu Labels? Our client wants the Menu Label of "Home" under

"Action" menu to be renamed to "MI Home".

    In the MI installation directory, within the lib folder, you would find the ME.jar file. Open this file in a winzip or winrar tool and navigate to location <i>com\sap\ip\me\awtapps\home</i>. In here you will find the file named <b></b>. Extract this file, edit the same in note pad and search for the key word Home. You would find this in two references. One of the reference is the key <b><i>xmit_STARTPAGE</i></b> with a value Home. Just change this value from <b>Home</b> to <b>MI Home</b> and then replace the changed file back in the archive in the same location. Then restart the client.

    Hope this helps.

    Best Regards

      Thanks Siva,

      That was great. It solved our problem partially. This solution is for single machine. How to implement this changed configuration in all machines or PDAs that are using our client application? There can be thousands of PDA which will be using this application.

      Warm Regards,
