The Tool Bar
Details on the main Tool Bar used in most windows.
The Application Menu and the Tool Bar that appears in most windows.
The equivalent toolbar in the Web Application.
Most windows are organized the same way in ADempiere. At the top of the window is a tool bar of icons, shown above, that is common across all Windows.
While the Web Application and the Java Client are mostly similar, there are a few differences. Specifically, the web application:
  • does not have both print and print-preview. In the Web Application there are the same thing so there is only one icon.
  • does not have a Home icon.
  • does not have an Exit icon.
  • does have a button to allow "quicksheet" entry
The details of the various toolbar icons follow:
