The ProblemTracker User Interface
The ProblemTracker user interface has the following main components as shown
in the illustration above:
- Button Bar
This bar contains buttons that allow direct access to ProblemTracker's primary
functions. For those operations that require a record, a dialog
appears prompting you to enter a record number. By default
this dialog will contain the record number of the last record
on which an operation was performed. This bar also contains the
Version of ProblemTracker being used.
- Status Bar
This area indicates the current ProblemTracker mode or operation. It also
reports on the status of the last operation. The Status Area
is contained in the same scrolling region as the Dialog Area, and
may become hidden if the area scrolls down sufficiently.
- Dialog Area
This is the primary data entry and reporting area of ProblemTracker. In most
cases action buttons that appear in this area are placed at both
the top and the bottom of the form to allow easier access.
