where are available some general purpose commands and the EM icon (on the left side of the tool bar).Refer To Title Page 339-1051/18 Issue: 1 .USER'S INTERFACE USER'S CONSOLE The EM ServiceOn Optical Element Manager Software can run on an X-Terminal or on the Console of the computer (if it is equipped with high resolution monitor). The HP Desktop is available when EM is run directly on the console of the HP Workstation. Each operation opens a window in the desktop displaying the data relative to the operation. Following is shown an example of configuration of the HP tool bar. The organization of the facilities offered by the desktop can be divided into two basic "objects": Windows and Icons. COPYRIGHT . The desktop itself can be considered as the basic window of the EM. It is however possible to configure the CDE/VUE in a different way (Refer to the HP-UX Documentation). More than one window can be opened on the desktop. the limit to the number of windows open at any one time depends on memory available in the X-Terminal (refer to Description Installation). Marconi Navigation Page Book Contents . The X-Terminal is a graphic terminal which is connected to the EM Network Server by means of an ethernet LAN (Refer to Description Installation for more details). The X-Terminal consists of the following parts: n Color monitor n Base Unit containing the digital electronics printed-circuit assembly and the Ethernet module n Keyboard n Mouse THE EM DESKTOP The HP-UX CDE/VUE forms the ServiceOn Optical Element Manager working area.
