How to customize open remote report menu to show a list

Darius Studdard asked on December 28, 2020

By default the Open Remote Report menu displays a popup with a text box that allows the user to manually enter the URL for a saved report.  What I would like to do instead is display a popup with a list of reports (json files) that are saved on the remote server for the user to select and open.  So something similar to the Open Local Report functionality where we can select from a list of saved files…except in this case the files would be the remote ones.  Can this be done pretty easily?

Thank you for contacting us.
We want to explain that the Toolbar is an addition to Flexmonster. It uses a standard API and provides easy access to the most commonly used features. The Toolbar is fully customizable. It means you can easily add, delete, or modify its tabs and submenus.
Please refer to our documentation for more information about the Toolbar customization.
In your case, we suggest overwriting the “Open remote report” button’s handler. This handler should create a pop-up window with predefined reports.
To open the remote report, use the load API call. It loads the report file from the specified URL.
Please let us know if it works for you.
Feel free to contact us in case additional questions arise.
