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. Using the Character UI
discusses this UI in more detail.
