You can view the properties of a menu item by right-clicking on it and choosing Properties from the pull-down menu.
The Properties window includes two tabs, General and Program.
The General tab displays the following information about the program:
The QAD Shell URL for the program.
The program number. For example, 7.1.1 is the program number for Sales Order Maintenance.
The program number and name. For example, for Sales Order Maintenance, 7.1.1 is the program number and sosomt.p is the program name.
The menu item folder location.
The Program tab displays the following information about the program:
The current working domain and domain currency. If the specific program updates data that applies to all domains, All Domains displays next to the working domain currency. This is determined by settings in Program Information Maintenance (188.8.131.52).
The program name. For example, sosomt.p is the program name for Sales Order Maintenance.
If the user executing the program has been assigned a configurable screens version of the program, the name of the assigned UI template displays.
Version details for Desktop.
Product system version details.
Options can include one or more of the following:
• Desktop. Specify that the screen displays based on XML data using .NET technology.
• .NET User Interface. Specify that the screen display is driven by a client-side plug-in, where the display is based on XML data using .NET technology. Only a small subset of programs support this option.
• Browse Viewer. Specify that the screen displays in an interactive grid or chart format (browses only).
• Terminal. Specify that the screen displays as a character-based terminal screen (also called terminal mode).
Note: Custom browses saved as favorites only display in Browse Viewer mode. If the mode is changed to Terminal, the custom browse will display in Browser View mode, not Terminal.
Note: Browses do not retain chart state when placed on the favorites.
Note: Programs saved as favorites and then launched from the Favorites pane will launch in whatever mode the source menu item is set to run, regardless of what setting they had when they were originally saved as a favorite. Browses do not retain chart state when placed on the favorites.
Initially, each program’s display mode is determined by settings in Program Information Maintenance (184.108.40.206). Each user can change this setting on a program-by-program basis using the Properties option. These choices are retained from session to session.
Home Page Menu Item
The home page (set in Tools | Options) displays when you log in to the QAD .NET UI. You can now also access the home page from the menu. In the Applications pane, go to Home Page to open the home page.
