Classic MDI Interface

The Classic MDI interface provides the familiar look-and-feel of past InfoConnect releases. When no session is open, the system menu bar, toolbar, status bar and Start page appear.

The Classic MDI interface provides the following features:

  • You can move, resize, minimize, maximize, or close a session window.

  • When a session is open, the menu bar, toolbars, and status bar are displayed for the selected session.

  • For each session type, the default menu bar contains a Window menu that allows the user to title the session windows horizontally or vertically, and cascade the session windows. It also displays the open session list for user to select.

  • You can modify menu and toolbars using the UI Designer, the same as in Ribbon mode.

  • You can move a toolbar to a different location of the Workspace or move out of the Workspace. The last location is saved with the session file.

  • Support for existing InfoConnect layout files (.aww). Changes are saved to a new layout file, using the .wrsp file format.

  • Web sessions open in the default Web browser.
