HtmlSearch Documentation: Screen layout

When you start the HtmlSearch applet, a four pane screen is displayed. From top to bottom:


Navigation Buttons

Depending on your configuration, some of the buttons may or may not be shown on your screen.

These buttons allow you to start and stop the search, and display the different panels:

Buttons can be grayed out if either the function is not available, or if the panel is already being displayed.

Status Line

The status line indicates what the program is currently doing. Between searches, it usually displays Ready unless the previous search encountered an error.
While the search is going on, it displays which pages it is accessing, and what stage of the process it is at. If the search is proceeding fast (e.g. on a fast PC, or searching on the local hard disk), the status line may look like a flashing text.
