Adding a Toolbar Item
The Toolbar Items panel is displayed on the Navigation tab directly below the Navigation Items panel. To add an item to the toolbar, select the toolbar folder and click add.
Adding a Button
To add a button to the toolbar, select the Button option in the Add dropdown list. The Button Item Details will be displayed. Update the button name, action type and other fields as desired and click Update.
When authentication is enabled, Atrium will attempt to sign the user into the Web application by sending along the credentials when the item is launched. SSL should be configured when authentication is used so that the credentials are encrypted when sent over the network.
There are 2 different authentication methods in Atrium:
- Request Parameter
Request sign on credentials from DB2 database files and pass them along to the web application as encoded parameters. This sign on method is appropriate for user-defined profiles or when setting up System i profiles for all users is not desirable. Profound Logic also offers APIs with Atrium that helps in decoding the sign on credentials and validating them against the database files.
- HTTP Basic:
Sign on credentials are provided by the system’s configured HTTP Apache web server instance. This sign on method is appropriate when the web server has been configured to validate users against IBM i user profiles or a validation list.
Adding a New Pulldown Menu
To add a pulldown menu to the toolbar, select the Pulldown Menu option in the Add dropdown list. Update the item name and various fields as desired and click update. You may add pulldown items to the new menu as well. In this example, we’ve named our new Pulldown Menu “Development Team” and added two items to the menu. You’ll also notice that we’ve assigned the development user group to the new menu in the screenshot below.
Adding a Separator Bar
To add a separator bar to the toolbar first select the Toolbar folder and click the add button. Select the Separator Bar option in the dropdown list. The new separator will be displayed in the list of Toolbar Items. You may select the separator and drag to the desired location to add a line of separation between two items.
Exit the control panel by clicking the “X” in the upper right hand corner. All of the items we’ve covered in the previous instructions are shown. You’ll notice the separator bar has been placed between My Company and Development Team as we specified in the toolbar settings.
Follow the same steps (listed above) to add a spacer or fill item to your toolbar. A spacer item, as the name suggests, adds a space between two items. A fill item fills the toolbar with spaces until it reaches the very end. A fill item is appropriate when rendering items on both, left most and right most, sides of the toolbar is desired.
