Rats.  I screwed up.  If you don't type in the name of the variable correctly,
then your search won't find it.

Vladimir is right, Frank.  Setting OVwRegDir will control where NetView looks
for registration files.

My apologies to all.

I don't know.   I don't work in this area. There is NOTHING in our doc that says
this will work.  You may try it if you like, but you are on your own.

James,

could you not setup the "OvRegDir" environment variable and force the
location of registration files?

NetView treats everything in /usr/OV/registration/C as a registration file.
And
that is the only place he looks. Of course, if you have one of the older NLS
versions, then for Ja_JP, your registration files would be in
/usr/OV/registration/Ja_JP.

The file names in this directory are not important, because NetView
processes
them all, so one thing to watch out for is that you cannot make a copy of an
existing registration file, re-name it, and keep it as a backup in this same
directory structure.  NetView will still process it, and the results are
unpredictable if you have two nearly identical files defining the same
structure.  What happens depends upon which one he reads last (I think).
That
is why there is a backup registration directory which mirrors
/usr/OV/registration.   Registration files are discussed in the Programmer's
Guide.

Everyting I write a new registration file I place it into the location
you've specified below.

Hello to All,

  I  am trying to find out where are all the "action" or "f.action" of the
Netview application registration files for the Netview's menu bar.  e.g
Locate >> Objects >> By Symbol Type  can be an action item in the
application registration file.


 Are they all organized under /Usr/OV/registration/C/<***> ? or they are
organized at other directories ?

   I think I have figured out a way to  log all the operator menu
selections
or events to a file.(  I have not coded it yet). My idea is to write a
Netview application program to use the OwAddActionCallback() API call to
follow the example under  /usrs/OV/prg_samples/ovw_examples/<**>.

Thanks for all the info help from the Netview community.
