Option 4.2. Use the Child Menu Bar

During runtime, a Child navigation bar displays the children of a selected node as a horizontal row of buttons. The buttons behave like quick launch buttons.

The child bar displays the following.


Children of the selected node in a horizontal row  below the main Navigation bar.


Buttons that represent child nodes with script actions.


Buttons that represent child nodes with screen overlay actions.

Note: If a user clicks a down arrow on the right of the button, the path to the node's screen displays.


Forward and back scroll buttons, if the CimView screen is more narrow than the Child bar.

Buttons on the child bar do not include menus for the children's children.
