Help on the Softare Buttons and Menus

  • Introduction to the Software Buttons and Menus

    In this page we have a small help on the software buttons and what they do, as well as some help on the available menus of this software. Only the buttons included only on the text editor and not on the other windows could be shown on the text editor help page and not on this one, more about these could be seen on the Help on the Text Editor Toolbar Buttons, because it is easier to study all that is specific to the text editor on its help page so that users have access to everything that belongs there in just one page and not here, all the other buttons which are common to all windows will be discussed here. The navigator buttons are also explained on the navigator help page itself and not here, to know more about those visit the Help on the Navigator Toolbar Buttons, all the others that might be common to all the windows will be explained in this page.

  • Toolbars

    We have two different toolbars, one that is common to all windows, with some few differences between each window, and one that is used by the Network Pinger's text editor, besides a small and very specific toolbar that belongs to the software's navigator itself.

    The existing toolbars are:

    These toolbars have buttons that could be available or unavailable depending if we have selected or not some hosts on the text box inside the window, being also that some buttons will only become available if there is an Internet domain name selected, while some others will only become available if there are Internet domain names or IP addresses selected. Lets see the several cases:

    • Buttons when there is nothing selected

    • Buttons with an Internet domain name selected

    • Buttons with an IP address selected

    This changing from available to unavailable process and vice versa, is due to the fact that there are tools that can only be used with Internet domain names and not IP addresses, as well as those on the last three buttons which are only applied to Internet domain names, and others that are applied to both, as well as these tools, all of them demanding that there is a host selected with the mouse inside one of the text boxes existing on the current window.

    Below we'll continue the study on the toolbar buttons of all windows of this software.

  • Menus

    The menus on top of each window are common to all windows, with some bigger exceptions as the text editor one, but besides that one there is nothing to mention. It happens that not only on those menus on the top as also on those that appear when clicking on the mouse's right button when inside a text box, the same thing that happens in the toolbars, which is that some functionalities become unavailable or available, according with the condition if we have selected an Internet domain name with our mouse, an IP address, or nothing, as we can see on the examples given below.

    On the examples above, we can also see that there are three separated categories inside those menus with their submenus, which we'll see here:

    • Connect

      Inside the two menus, whether the one called with the right button of the mouse, whether the one on the tools on top, there is this category, which contains inside itself the several types of connections that can not only be made to selected hosts, as Telnet, Remote Desktop Connection, SSH and others, as also can be customized, and will become available and visible inside this category in case a valid host is selected, being that if there is no valid host selected in a text box or not being anything selected at all, its entire submenu will become unavailable and the category name itself also.

    • Web Tools

      This category, which will only be shown as available if at least one of its elements is available to be clicked, contains a submenu with the several web tools existing on this software, those which will be opened through the navigator and with information that would be obtained through websites like Google. The items on its submenu will become visible inside this category if an Internet domain name is selected, being that if there is no valid selected domain name inside a text box or nothing is selected, not only its entire submenu would become unavailable but also its category name.

    • Customized Commands

      This is the most customizable of the categories, it is the one which contains the commands customized by the user. All the custom commands that the user creates or customizes, would become accessible through this category which contains them inside their submenus. If none of their items are available, the category would become unavailable, and if only one of them becomes available the category itself would become available. It's up to the user to define everything when creating or customizing the commands, what would make the commands become available, if having an Internet domain name, an IP address, or if they would become available even if there isn't anything selected, or having some selected text which isn't a valid host, or even dictates that a custom command shall never become available in any circumstances. It's up to the user how these commands should behave and their components also.

  • Menus and Toolbars Buttons

    Here we have something about the buttons that exist on the toolbars and menus, containing some explanations about their functionalities. In this list of buttons, several buttons that belong to the text editor toolbar won't be included, and those buttons would have to be checked on the Help on the Text Editor page, in which a complete list with those buttons will be available.

    Lets see now the buttons which are usually available on the Network Pinger software windows:
