[00:00] In this lesson, we're going to take a look at how we can hide the menu bar within the client. The command menu is actually part of a project template and is put together in a client event menu bar script. We will go over managing that script in a later lesson. However, it is also possible to hide the windows menu, which shows a list of all currently open windows, as well as the menu bar as a whole. To do so, we need to go into our designer and open up our project properties and go to vision user interface. You'll notice there are two checkboxes here, one to hide the menu bar and one to hide the windows menu. Now, if I select to hide the windows menu and hit OK, I will need to save my project to get the changes to take effect in my client. And if I look at my client, you'll notice now the Windows menu is gone from my menu bar. Let me go back to my designer and into my project properties and this time I'll choose to hide the entire menu bar. I'll save my project, and once again, I'll go back into the vision client and you'll notice that the menu bar is still there. If the client is already open, the menu bar will not go away even through a save. You need to log out of the client and then log back in for the change to take effect. So I'll go ahead and log out of my client and then log back in and you'll notice now the menu bar is no longer there.
