CONFIGURE SMART ICONS

The Configure Smart Icons command allows the user to create and modify Smart Icon sets. The Smart Icon bar is located directly below the menu bar. The Smart Icon bar shows a configurable list of Smart Icons.



A Smart icon is a button that, when pressed, executes a specific command. The button face typically displays a picture that describes the action to be performed when pressed. It is designed to quickly and easily execute a pull-down menu command.

If you don't know what a smart icon does, you can quickly find out by clicking and holding the right mouse button on it. The title bar will describe the smart icon until you release the mouse button.

You can have more than one Smart Icon set. You can select another Smart Icon set by selecting the Next Page of Icons option from the File pull-down menu. You can also use the select page Smart Icon to pick from a list of pages.

Smart icon sets for ONView are given the file extension .SIV.

By selecting the Configure Smart Icon option in the pull-down menu, the Smart Icon Configurator appears:

Customize

By selecting the Customize button in the Smart Icon Configurator, the Customize Toolbar window appears.



The Available Toolbar Buttons list box contains all the icons usable by ONView along with a description of the function they perform. The Current Toolbar Buttons list box contains the icons that are configured in the current .SIV file.

To add a Smart Icon, highlight the desired icon in the Available Toolbar Buttons list box and click on the Add -> button.

To remove a Smart Icon, highlight the desired icon in the Current Toolbar Buttons list box and click on the <- Remove button.
