There are several ways to order and retrieve the program options available for each user. A classical approach is defining a tree structure with main options, related branches and end options. The standard design involves defining Panels and Menús.
 

1 Panel definition

A Panel is a group of directories (branches) and menu options, grouped within a tree structure. Usually the root menu is built at the left side of the desktop and contains at least one Panel

The definition of Panels is registered by database params. This select the dictionary of the database (wic) where applies the Panel.

Select the menu option: Menus - Panels

A panel is inserted with the ERP code, CHINOOK tag, and ERP-GES URL. This URL will be referenced in the definition of subfolders and menu options.

 

2 Folder definition

  • Once the panel is created, you can define folders that will contain menu options.

  • Click on the menu option:Menu - Menu

  • Indicate as the root folder and subfolder, the URL specified in the panel definition.

  • In the field Submenu enter the code of the folder.

  • Select the option Tree in the field dropdown Type.

  • The informed description will be the name of the folder that the end user of the application will see.

 

3 Menu option definition

The menu options are created in the same form as the folders.

  • Indicate as the root folder, the URL specified in the panel definition.

  • In the field Subfolder enter the code of the folder to which the menu option belongs.

  • Select the option Item in the dropdown of the Type field.

  • The informed description will be the name of the menu option that the end user will see.

  • The code of the object to be executed is specified in the field URL.
