User Interface

Home Prev Top Next

The Graphical User Interface (GUI) consists of a Main Window (consisting of the Page Design and DB Query View tabs) and several panes (see screenshot below). By default, the panes are located around the Main Window, but can be moved around the GUI, minimized, or hidden.


The panes, which are listed below, are described in the sub-sections of this section:

Showing/hiding panes

A pane can be displayed or hidden by toggling it, respectively, on or off in the View menu. A displayed pane can also be hidden by right-clicking its title bar of the displayed pane and selecting the command Hide.


Floating and docking the panes

An individual pane can either float free of the GUI or be docked within the GUI. When a floating window is docked, it docks into its last docked position. A window can also be docked as a tab within another window.


A window can be made to float or dock using one of the following methods:


Right-click the title bar of a window and choose the required command (Floating or Docking).

Double-click the title bar of the window. If docked, the window will now float. If floating, the window will now dock in the last position in which it was docked.

Drag the window (using its title bar as a handle) out of its docked position so that it floats. Drag a floating window (by its title bar) to the location where it is to be docked. Two sets of blue arrows appear. The outer set of four arrows enables docking relative to the application window (along the top, right, bottom, or left edge of the GUI). The inner set of arrows enables docking relative to the window over which the cursor is currently placed. Dropping a dragged window on the button in the center of the inner set of arrows (or on the title bar of a window) docks the dragged window as a tabbed window within the window in which it is dropped.


To float a tabbed window, double-click its tab. To drag a tabbed window out of a group of tabbed windows, drag its tab.


Auto-hiding panes

The Auto-hide feature enables you to minimize docked panes to buttons along the edges of the application window. This gives you more screen space for the Main Window and other panes. Scrolling over a minimized pane rolls out that pane.


To auto-hide and restore panes click the drawing pin icon in the title bar of the pane window (or right-click the title bar and select Auto-Hide).
