Pro-Bot Menu

So far, you have entered commands directly into Pro-Bot’s Main program by using the Pro-Bot keypad. Pro-Bot has many additional functions that are accessible through its Menu system. Like a restaurant menu, the Pro-Bot Menu offers choices for you to pick, depending on what you want.

Pro-Bot Menu System

Access the Menus

Access the Pro-Bot menu by pressing the key labeled Menu to the right of the pen mechanism. The up and down arrow keys to the right of Menu are used to choose the menu option you want. Pressing the up arrow moves the highlight cursor up one item in the current menu display. Pressing the down arrow moves the highlight cursor to the next item in the current menu display. Once the desired item is highlighted, press Menu to select it.

Menu Levels

As you move through the menu system, the Pro-Bot display shows the options for that level in the menu. In each case, the first line displayed is the title of the current menu section. The second line displayed is Back. Selecting Back and pressing Menu, moves up one level in the menu system, back to the screen from which the current option was selected.
