Go Up to Handling VCL Actions Using an Action Manager

A most recently used list (MRU) reflects the user's most recently accessed files in a specific application. Using action bands, you can code MRU lists in your applications.

When building MRUs for your applications, it is important not to hard code references to specific numerical indexes into the Action Manager's ActionBars property. At runtime, the user may change the order of items or even delete them from the action bands, which in turn will change the numerical ordering of the index. Instead of referring to index numbering, TActionManager includes methods that facilitate finding items by action or by caption.

For more information about MRU lists, sample code, and methods for finding actions in lists, see FindItemByAction and FindItemByCaption in the online Help.
