HEADER: USING MENU MANAGEMENT
Menu Management is the system by which options can be linked together and made accessible to users. A hierarchical structure is set up which allows the user to gain access to different functions in the system by progressing thru a tree.
Every user has a PRIMARY MENU option. This is the top level in the tree. Users may also have one or more SECONDARY MENU options. These are options specifically assigned to an individual user which can be accessed at any time.
The XUCOMMAND menu is accessible to all users at any time.
LOCKS can be applied to any option, to prohibit access to individual users. There are also several other ways of [[HELP FRAME ; | RESTRICTING] access to the system.
HELP FRAMES can be accessed with the option name prefaced by a '?'. These frames provide extended information on how to use options.
Menu Management provides ways of SETTING UP the tree structures, assigning keys to users, restricting access to options, providing help text for options, INQUIRING to the options, CROSS-REFERENCING the options, and DIAGRAMING menus.
