Main menu overview

Level: beginner

The main menu is displayed in the working area (1) of the UI after the application has been loaded. The main menu can be opened using the Menu button located at the top (3) of the side panel (2).

Main menu commands used for opening system sections are also available in the section area (5) of the side panel (2). The list of available section navigation commands depends on the selected workplace (4).

Two schemas correspond to the main menu: the base schema of the ApplicationMainMenu business object and the product main menu schema inherited from the base product main menu schema SimpleIntro. For the SalesEnterprise product, the main menu schema is named EnterpriseIntro.

The element composition of the main menu UI depends on the product. All elements are placed in corresponding containers that are set up in the base or inherited schema of the main menu. The primary containers of the SalesEnterprise product include:

  • Menu main container (MainContainer), which contains all main menu elements.
