  2. On the Type list, select Show action menu.
  3. Change the default Name (ShowActionMenuAction1) to something meaningful.
  4. Optional. Enter a Description for the action.
  5. Optional. Select Multilingual to configure a unique action for each language separately. See Configure multilingual actions.
  6. To display the action menu, select the menu on the Action menu list. See Define action menus for a touch-enhanced form.
  7. Click Save.

    The newly created action is added to the table.

  8. Associate the action with the control to trigger this action. See Configure actions for form control events. Alternatively to call this action for a form event, associate the action with the form. See Associate an action with a form.

    When triggered, this action launches the action menu when the form is opened.
