Choosing a Layout

By default, when you first install WebWatchBot, the layout of the window panes is set to resemble "Microsoft Outlook". To change the layout to a predefined set, select from the main menu: View->Current Layout:

Then select one of the following:

  • Microsoft Outlook
  • Microsoft Visual Studio
  • Compact
  • Left Docked
  • Right Docked
  • All Visible
  • Custom - Saves the last layout selected or custom window positions


At any time, you may change the layout of the window panes which will be saved when you exit the WebWatchBot Manager application.



Resizing Window Panes

All window panes, with the exception of the Watch List Pane, can be resized by left-click-holding and dragging the edge of a window pane:

Hiding Window Panes

All window panes, with the exception of the Watch List Pane, can be hidden by left-clicking on the push-pin button in the upper right hand corner of the window pane:

Once hidden, hover the mouse pointer over the window pane tab you wish to show (unhide) to activate the window pane. Left-click on the push-pin button again to "dock" the window pane.


Moving Window Panes

All window panes, with the exception of the Watch List Pane, can be moved by left-click-holding the window pane title bar, then dragging to a new location. If the window is not "docked" in a new location, it is considered floating. Floating a window pane is useful if you wish to make a window pane large to better view the data contained within:

To automatically make the window dock back to its previously docked location, double-click on the window pane title bar.


To automatically make the window float again, double-click onthe window pane title bar.


To float and dock a tabbed pane, left-click-hold the desired tab, then drag to a new location.
