Character User Interface
Unlike the QAD .NET user interface, the character user interface depends completely on input from the keyboard. Because it is not a graphical user interface, all navigation is based on:
• A command-prompt interface to execute programs
• Combinations of keystrokes to issue commands within programs
• Navigation without use of a mouse through the UNIX character interface
Component-based functions are accessible only through the QAD .NET UI. You cannot access any of these functions from the Character UI.
