Environment

Reflection Desktop (including Pro, or for UNIX and OpenVMS) 16.0 or higher
Reflection 2014
Reflection Pro 2014
Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS 2014
Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS 2011
Reflection Standard Suite 2011

Situation

Not all buttons get imported from a legacy-Reflection Host session (*.r2w) toolbar to the Reflection Desktop ribbon  The buttons that don’t appear are mapped to Action: "Commands" which doesn’t correspond to an Action in Reflection Desktop 16.  In legacy Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS version 14, the “Commands” Action can be of type: “Menu Command”, “Terminal Command”, “Visual Basic”, and “RCL”. 

Resolution

If using Reflection Desktop 16.0:
        Update to Reflection Desktop 16.0 SP1 HF11 or higher.  (16.0.390)
If using Reflection Desktop 16.1:
        Update to Reflection Desktop 16.1 SP1 or higher. 

These updated versions of Reflection Desktop will display all imported toolbar buttons, even if the buttons are mapped to an unsupported action.  To make this new functionality work, the legacy toolbar or the legacy host session must be re-imported from Reflection version 14 to Reflection Desktop.

A HotFix (HF) for Reflection Desktop is a cumulatively built product update, intended for limited distribution, which addresses specific customer issues and enhancement requests; outside the regular Development release cycle. It is only available to Micro Focus customers with current software support and maintenance contracts, and only after contacting Micro Focus Customer Support directly.  A HotFix undergoes limited stability and quality testing and is intended for quick release to address specific product issues and should not be deployed to production environments without thorough testing.  It is recommended to upgrade to a full-release or a Service Pack version of Reflection Desktop when it becomes available.
