Perspective Menutree NavIcon replaced with a view


I would like to know if it is possible to replace the navicon in the Perspective menu tree with a view instead?

A tab item can be replaced as follows:

I tried this, but no success:

I essentially want the icon to indicate the alarm status of the area that the menu represents.


There is no current way to accomplish this by using a View as the Menu Tree does not allow for Views to be used as icons, although if you are comfortable with using your own icon library you could introduce numeric alarm icons and then just use those.


I can definitely design an icon for each alarm priority.

We like to flash for unacknowledged alarm present. Suppose I can alternately between 2 icons every second to mimic the icon flashing.

Is there a better way?

You could just alternate the color of the icon.

That will work. Thanks
