The application shell has the following components:


  • Navigation Bar;
  • The Left Panel;
  • One or two frames that contain Tabs. Two frames means that the shell has a left-side and right-side frame;
  • A tab contains at least one page (SmartPage). Multiple pages can be stacked on top of each other (modal pages).


This structure can be accessed through the static Navigator class.
