  • A FlyoutAnchor element can optionally have a "Command" attribute. When would I want to use it?

    you can associate a command to be execute when opening and when closing a fly-out menu. 

    You could possibly use this to filter the elements of a drop-down menu dynamically, based on a set of conditions and data filled on the form.

  • Hi. Appreciate the response. Problem is that I have tried to use the "command" option of a flyoutanchor without success. I also have use the dynamic population of a flyout but that depends on other attributes. It kinda makes sense for the command of a flyout not to actually do anything other than display the flyout menu structure because how would the flyout know which to do? display the menu structure or execute a command? I am guessing the command of a flyout only makes sense in terms of enable/display rules and not the command itself. Wasn't sure, hence the question.
