Removing menu items and buttons

Hi, my first post here.

Using Spark 2.5.7 through Openfire 3.4.1 and was just wondering about menu items and buttons in Spark

I know its possible to add menu items and buttons but is it possible to take out the exisitng default ones? We are trying to limit what our users can actually do with Spark.

As far as I know you need to either modify and recompile from the source code or possibly write a plugin.

Since I haven’t had a chance to do either of these things I have modified a language file to remove the “tooltip” from the buttons I don’t want people using. Not really a good solution but it’s an interim one.

I have the same problem…did you ever figure out how to do it?

Do you wonder did he figure out how to edit the source and then recompile it? What exactly do you want to know? In any case you would have to program. So you can take a source and study it. Maybe you’ll find what do you have to edit/remove/change.

most useful. thanks.

Yes, you will have to edit the source and recompile.

Really quite simple once all the tools are in place.

The most difficult part is creating the exe to install when you’re all done.

You can use Install4j or Advanced Installer, both compile scripts are included with spark, you just end up with the annoying demo software message until you buy it.

And if I want to remove the button “Start a Chat”?
