1.0 Overview

GroupWise Custom 3rd-Party Object (C3PO) software combines and replaces the older and less functional notion of custom messages and custom commands.

A C3PO can make the following modifications to the user interface:

  • Add new menus, menu items, and separators to existing menus.

  • Add new buttons, with user-defined bitmaps, to the toolbar.
