Common Schedule Dialog Box Features

All of the schedule dialog boxes work in a similar way. The buttons available that you use to create and modify records in the schedule are all the same. Learning how to use one of the dialog boxes allows you to know how to use the other dialog boxes.

New: Press this button to create a new record in the schedule. The record will be created with default information.

Copy: Press this button to copy the currently displayed record in the schedule. The newly created record will be created with the same information as the currently displayed record.

Save: Press this button to save any changes made to the currently displayed record in the schedule. If you make changes and do not press this button, you will be prompted to save your changes before selecting a new record or closing the schedule dialog box.

Delete: Press this button to delete the currently displayed record in the schedule. If there are any devices inserted on a drawing in the project that use the record, you will not be able to delete it. You must first delete all of the devices from the drawings, then you can delete the record.

Rename: Press this button to rename the currently displayed record in the schedule. Any labels on the drawing will be updated automatically to match the new name.

Find: Press this button to select a schedule record from a list of all of the items in the schedule. The record you select will be displayed in the dialog box, allowing you to view and modify it.

For most schedules, a list of entries will be displayed.

For distribution equipment, the Find Distribution Equipment dialog box will be used. On the left is a tree view of all of the distribution equipment in the project. Devices that are connected to other devices are indented to indicate their relationship. On the right is a list of all of the equipment. The list on the right is grouped by equipment type, then sorted alphabetically within each type. When you select an equipment in one of the lists, it is automatically selected in the other list.

Next: Press this button to select and display the next record in the schedule. The next record is determined by sorting the entries in the schedule alphabetically. If you press this button when viewing the last record, it will wrap back to the beginning and display the first record.

Previous: Press this button to select and display the previous record in the schedule. The previous record is determined by sorting the entries in the schedule alphabetically. If you press this button when viewing the first record, it will wrap to the ending and display the last record.

Current Group: The active group is listed here. All of the items that are created and modified will be associated with this group.

Select Group: Press this button to open the Groups dialog box. In addition to allowing you to select a new group, the Groups dialog box also allows you to create and modify groups. See the Schedule Groups section for more information.

Move to Another Group: Press the button to move the current item to another group. A dialog box will be displayed that will prompt you to select the other group to which the item will be moved. This button is disabled if only one group exists. The active group will be changed to the new group after the command is run.

Copy to Another Group: Press the button to copy the current item to another group. A dialog box will be displayed that will prompt you to select the other group to which the item will be copied. This button is disabled if only one group exists. A copy of the current item will be created in the other group. The current item will remain the same after the command is run.
