Version 11

    Versions: 10.1 - current

    Product Availability: Responder


    This project sample illustrates how to create a button and context menu commands to display in Responder Explorer.

    How to Implement:

    1. Open ExplorerCustomizations.csproj and connect any broken references.
    2. Modify any classes you wish to implement.
    3. Build the solution.
    4. Copy the ExplorerCustomizations.dll to the client machine, typically at this location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Miner and Miner\Responder\Client.
    5. Add the layout files (ContextMenu.custom.layout, RXButtonCommand.custom.layout, and ReprocessIncidentCommand.custom.layout) to the client machine at this path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Miner and Miner\Responder\Client\addons.
    6. On your server, open the ControlSytlesConfig.xml file found here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Miner and Miner\Responder\Server.
    7. For the Context Menu command, locate the following section:

    <ControlStyle Key="CrewTree" ResourceAssembly="Miner.Responder.Windows">

       <!--tree displaying crews-->

       <Commands Key="CrewTree_Commands">


    -Code excluded from example-


    1. Edit and insert the XML from the ContextMenuSnippets.Readme file below the <Commands Key="CrewTree_Commands"> section.
    2. For the Reprocess Incident command, locate the following section:

    <ControlStyle Key="IncidentGrid" ResourceAssembly="Miner.Responder.Explorer">

    1. Create a new section below this and insert the following:

    <ControlStyle Key="IncidentGrid" ResourceAssembly="ExplorerCustomizations">

    <Commands Key="IncidentGrid_Commands">

      <Command Key="ReprocessIncidentCommand"/>



    1. Also, locate the <ControlStyle Key="IncidentGridAllRegions" ResourceAssembly="Miner.Responder.Explorer"> and the <ControlStyle Key="IncidentGrid" ResourceAssembly="Miner.Responder.Explorer"> sections.
    2. Within these sections, insert the following at the bottom of the list of Command Keys: 

    <Command Key="ReprocessIncidentCommand" />

    1. Save the config file and restart services and Responder to see changes.
