Frames and Forms
A frame is a form with associated program code that defines the available menu items. A frame contains the following parts:
Window for displaying a form for data entry or data display
Menu area for appropriate menu options
Area for displaying program and error messages
Depending on the Ingres tool you are using and the menu operation you have chosen, a form appears in the frame's window with menu choices in the menu area that are appropriate for that particular task.
The menu (see page Menus) displays the operations available on the form in the current frame.
The following figure illustrates a typical frame.
