Standard (legacy?) IBM i menu object create a *MSGF that contains the Menu options as a MSGID entry. These menu options can be retrieved using the QMHRTVM easily. However our UIM-based IBM menus have no such equivalent and therefore present a problem in that we can't do an accurate WHERE USED process for programs called from Menus. This request is to provide an API that can extract a list of Menu options the the program or command string behind those options; specifically for UIM based menus.
Using QMHRTVM and our RTVMNUOPT SQL Table Function we can easily extract the menu options any and all Menus that are not UIM-based. However this technique does not permit use to do the same for UIM-based menus. Therefore we can only scan legacy/non-UIM menus for program cross references and other option information leaving UIM-based menus out.
