the executable. In the following case, we are adding GRETEP (part
of the LMGP suite).
The standard user option to tell WinGX to pass
the default Shelx INS structure file is to add a command
line argument of %comp%. However, in the case of GRETEP, the
extension has to be explicitely specified (%comp%.ins

Old WinGX 1.63 method of adding Custom Menu OptionsFrom the WinGX Readme file
7) There is a new method of implementing user-defined menu items. Under the [System] heading in WINGX.INI lines may be added to append user-defined programs to the WinGX menu. Up to five items may be appended to each of the menu items from MODEL to PUBLISH (i.e. a total of 45 extra programs). The format of the entry is: Mod_UserItem=PROGNAME fullpath of executable (+ any command line entries) e.g. Mod_UserItem=MYPROG c:\progfiles\myprog.exe %comp% -c -o This example will add an entry called MYPROG to the MODEL menu, and clicking on it will execute the program myprog.exe (with command line options). Use the first three letters of the menu name to indicate which menu to attach to e.g. Dat_UserItem, Abs_UserItem, Gra_UserItem etc. PROGNAME is a character string (10 characters maximum) which will appear as the menu tag. The only restriction is that all user defined items MUST have different tag names (but they can have the same name as standard menu items). If the compound name is required on the command line (to define files etc) then use the synonym %comp%. This will be replaced by the actual compound name at run time. The user program to be executed can either be a Windows executable, a DOS executable or a DOS BAT file.
Thus, as an example of adding sxgraph.exe into a desired part of the menu system:
to add this so it can be called off the WinGX Refinement Menu edit the wingx.ini file in the WinGX program directory.
Under [System] in the wingx.ini file add:
Ref_UserItem=SXGRAPH c:\wingx\for_prog\sxgraph.exe %comp%
Which results to the following addition to the WinGX menu system that can be quickly and conveniently run.
