A Custom 3rd-Party Object (C3PO) is an OLE COM server object that is used to extend the GroupWise 8 and later environments. The extensions take various forms, ranging from implementing custom record types (objects) in the GroupWise data store to modifying the GroupWise browser or toolbar functionality. A C3PO can be developed by using C++, Delphi, or Visual Basic.
A C3PO can make the following modifications to the user interface:
Add new commands to the menus and new buttons to the toolbar.
Place user-defined bitmaps on the toolbar.
Add separator lines to enhance the appearance of menu items.
Provide a Help file with customized information about the C3PO.
The SDK also includes an installable wizard that walks you through the C3PO creation process. To access the wizard, locate the C3PO Wizard in the Tools section of the GroupWise SDK main page, then click. A self-extracting executable file will be downloaded to your system. Run the file to install the wizard and a wizard help document on your system.
You can download an evaluation copy of GroupWise from the Novell Downloads site.
For complete installation instructions, see the GroupWise 2012 Installation Guide.
To install the GroupWise C3PO
Execute the c3po.exe to extract the C3PO files on your workstation.
