[mapguide-users] changing position of task bar

Without trying it, I'm not sure if this would work but it might be worth a try...

1) In MG Studio or equivalent, open your basic layout and disable the properties pane and task pane.
2) Set URL hyperlinks to open in a specified frame, and pick a new unique name for the frame.
3) Set all commands that are currently targeted at the task pane also to open in that specified frame.
4) Modify the AJAX viewer to add a new frame with the unique name below the legend.

It shouldn't take a huge amount of effort to figure out if it's actually going to work.

Subject: [mapguide-users] changing position of task bar

Dear all,

I would like to change the position of the task bar in the ajax viewer for
MGOS 2.1. I have seen the posts about changing it to the left-hand side, and
have implemented that, but ideally I want to ditch the properties pane and
integrate the task pane (with a custom properties task included) below the
legend. When I look in the developer's guide at the layout of the frames
within the ajax viewer, it doesn't look like this is going to be possible,
as both the legend and the properties panes are integrated within the main

Is there a way to do what I want, by changing the order of frames within the
various templates, or am I wasting my time? For a number of regions, the
client wants the ajax viewer rather than fusion.
