For example, I have one function that reboots a remote machine (let's called it RemReboot). What do I need to specify in the menu_data.js file to make it call the RemReboot Vbscript function in the HTA?

never mind, I found it in another post. For any others that want to know you do this
aI("text=Vbscript Menu Test;clickfunction=TestMsg();")
The TestMsg Sub/Function needs to be in your HTA

Thanks so much for posting the solution. We appreciate it.

No problem. Now all I need to find out is how to make entries in the menu dynamic.
My HTA is used to get info on remote PCs and one of the things it retrieves is a list of shares available on the machine. Currently those shares are added to an HTML listbox from which the user selects which share to browse/manage. It would be nice to have a menu entry that is dynamically created with the various shares. I think that might be a little beyond my very limited JSscript skills though

Well, it is way beyond mine But, I know there is a php menu which retrieves things from a data base, and there is also a asp, and something about mysql, so I'm sure it's possible.

There is a menu editing API at http://www.milonic.com/mm_menueditapi.js that will allow you to dynamically change menus and menu items.

Excuse my newbie ignorance but how do you incoporate this into a simple HTA? For example, here's a test one I have.
MsgBox "HELLO WORLD"
Let's say I have another Sub that goes off and gets all the open shares on a machine. How can I have the API add a menu item for each share?
I hope I've explained that correctly.
