Im migrating from superlayer to vip ide. The problem i currently facing is there are function in SL that were using system file like slmstack.pro which i could not find in vip.
For those of us who have never used Superlayer what does slmstackpro do?

You have a number of options.
1) Change the 'M' to an 'F' for all your menu functions. That way you will be able to amend the menu function code.
2) Replace the SuperLayer menu system with another. When I worked at PROIV we developed an off the shelf Security and Menu driver package that forms part of the standard distribution with Version 7. The menu driver supports all the features that the SuperLayer menus supported including sub-titles - although I never liked those and always created them as distinct menus. Note that the Menu Driver is a single function that is data driven by data files that store a menus definition. PROIV developed migration routines that migrated the SuperLayer menus into the Security and Menu driver package.
3) Write/obtain your own menu system. Although more costly, this may be an advantageous time to look and redeveloping your navigation system.
4) Implement Aurora. Aurora's security and menu interface can be 'hooked' into any existing security system via the api's (task calls). By default it works with the aforementioned Security and Menu driver package that forms part of the standard distribution with Version 7. If you are serious about moving your application forward then this is the approach I would take.
I would give PROIV a call in the first instance to explore the above options, as they could probably do it for you a lot cheaper than it would take you to do it yourself - regardless of which option you chose.
