The Web Designer catalog shows all Pages, Controls, and Page Sets. To show the Catalog, choose Catalog from the View Menu. To hide the Catalog, click the Close button in the top-right corner of the catalog pane, or choose Hide Catalog from the context menu of most catalog tree nodes.

The Pages tab of the catalog lists all data pages that show data from tables and columns, and pages that are not related to data. Data pages are info pages, lookup pages, and related pages.

The catalog also shows the inheritance hierarchy of info pages.

· Inheritance from the general InfoPage page onto all info pages.


· Inheritance from a specific info page (Tours, for example) onto its subclasses (TravelWeb Tours).

Each info page is based on one table or logical view, as specified in the Definer. You can also create new info pages from the catalog. Info pages allow simple search and manipulation functionality.

The controls tab of the catalog shows all objects and controls that you can insert in a web page.

The Page Sets tab of the catalog initially shows no content. In this tab page you can insert a page set via the context menu.

The Menus tab of the catalog lists all the available menu pages for inclusion in the Web application. See "Web Menus" for more information.

The calalog can be "docked". Dockable windows can be:

· Docked to the sides of your application.


· Floating above your application in separate windows.


· Collapsed to the side of your application, only appearing when the user moves their cursor over the Property Inspector's caption in the margin of the main window.

See "Docking Windows" for more details.
