Figure 3.3 - standard Toolbar for graphic display

The Toolbar is a row of pushbuttons at the top of each graphic display window.   The toolbar is used to call new displays, acknowledge alarms and open dialog boxes. Engineers can customize the appearance of the toolbar, by adding or deleting buttons and icons.  The toolbar can change based on the display being viewed.  Users can hide the toolbar using View Property link. Engineers can hide the toolbar by using the bwviewpg.asp options.

The Status Bar at the bottom of the display shows the description of each button on the Toolbar by moving the cursor over that button.

The Right Click Menu (in a web browser VIEW) is also another easy way to navigate. ViewDAQ users (i.e. the non-web browser version local to SCADA Node) have a menu bar. Keyboard Function Keys provide an alternative to the Toolbar and Menus.
