The Status Bar and Windows System Tray

Follow

The Status Bar

The Status Bar, located at the bottom of the Aeon Client, serves two purposes. First and foremost it acts as a method of passive communication between the application and the user. It allows the application to keep you aware of certain conditions without having to display pop up boxes or clutter forms. Exactly what is displayed will depend entirely upon the situation and the application. Aeon, for example, displays the user name of the currently logged in user as well as the total number of requests in an open Request queue or the number of results found in a search. In addition to being a method of communication, the status bar also serves as a location for the window's resize handle, which resides on the far right side of the status bar. This can be used to resize the window to better fit your needs. By clicking and dragging the resize tool, you can adjust the size of the active window.

Windows System Tray

The Windows system tray is located in the Windows Taskbar, at the bottom right corner of your computer screen. It contains miniature icons for easy access to system functions such as antivirus settings, printer, modem, sound volume, battery status, and more. Aeon Notification icons display in the Windows system tray when there are new requests and new users waiting to be cleared.
