Abstract

Within the product, there are several different object types. Each of these objects has structural information that may be useful to the user in a printed form. In some cases, the user has an easy way to view the information about an object (in an underlying primary window). In other cases, the underlying screen is used for positional information (forms and menus) and, therefore, cannot contain all information about that object. A common method of printing out these objects is described.
