Problem: DISPLAY ICON does not bring up the icon in an AML menu

Solution or Workaround


The icon name specified in the DISPLAY field of a menu using the ICON option does not display. An empty box is displayed.


A DISPLAY field requires a variable name.


Set a variable equal to the pathname of the icon, place the variable name in the DISPLAY field and the icon will display correctly.

NOTE: Do not enclose the variable name in percent signs ( %variable% ).
