Robot: Cosmetic changes
The in-game '''menubar''' of [[FlightGear]] is located at the top of the screen.
The menubar is available in various styles. Currently there are two styles (both are shown below) packaged with FlightGear. The blue/black one is standard, but most developers use the grey/white one. You could switch between styles by pressing Shift + F10.
===Creating your own===
It's very easy to make your own designs. Just copy one of the files that you find in <tt>data/gui/styles</tt> and change it to your needs.
Then, edit the follwing code in the <tt>data/preferences.xml</tt> file to fit your style. You could simply add a line like <tt><style n="0" include="gui/styles/anthrax.xml"/></tt>. The current-style tag specifies the style that should be used when FlightGear loads.
==Add items=====Aircraft dependent items===
To add a menu for a specific plane only you have to enhance the planes -set.xml file. Add the follow lines (example for the [[Livery over MP|livery selection dialog]] in a [[Boeing 787]]), or any item that you want to show, above the </sim> tag. You can add as many items and menus as you like, but keep the menubar as small as possible, the larger the outside view will be.
==Menu items==
* [[Autopilot]]
* [[Chat Menu]]
