Is it possible to modify EG context menu to perform custom task ?

Hello,

I'd like to be able to perform a custom task from the EG context menu and I did start to examine .NET developping.

The very first step was to get a sample custom task and get it working with EG, which I did successfully, through the

add-in manager.

But my concern is that I didn't find the way to execute the custom task from the context menu.

As for a example, I'd like to right click on a SAS table object in the project tab and execute the FSEdit like custom task

( see http://support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/guide/customtasks/fsedit.jpg) on this table.

I did buy the book

Custom Tasks for SAS Enterprise Guide Using Microsoft .NET by Chris Hemedinger

...to see if it can help me achieve this.

Any suggestion will help for sure.

No, there is not a way to modify a context menu in EG to launch a custom task.  It would be a useful capability, but there is no such "hook" now.

Thanks for buying the book.  I hope that helps you with many of the other custom task "tricks", despite this limitation.
