2.1 GUI Components

The graphical user interface (GUI) is made up of four main components: a console, control panels, dialog boxes, and graphics windows. When you use the GUI, you will be interacting with one of these components at all times. Figure  2.1.1 is a sample screen shot showing all of the GUI components. The four GUI components are described in detail in subsequent section.

On UNIX systems, the attributes of the GUI (including colors and text fonts) can be customized to better match your platform environment. This is described in Section  2.2.
