Data entry made easy!

Postby David Tickell1 » Sat May 08, 2004 11:47 pm

My wish has to do with the data entry of the timings! On the timing section of the intersection it would be good to have a spot at the bottom below where it shows the splits to enter the timings. These buttons would correspond with the protruding phase buttons in the timings section.the way it is now you have to click on each box then enter the timings,this is very time consuming when you have 20 intersections,then as the project continues it has to be constantly updated.If this box was added to the bottom you could enter the timings and just tab over through the phases,this would also make checking your splits easier with all the phases listed in order. here is a crude example of a 100 sec cycle-
Phase 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Split 15 20 15 50 15 20 15 50
(well Im unable to make these numbers line up on my example)
this would of course have a box around it and lines spliting up the phases.This is just an idea!

This is a nice suggestion. Thanks David.

If I understand correctly, only the splits in this table are editable, not the phase numbers. Is that right?

Regards.

Yes, that is somewhat correct,
If the protruding buttons phase was changed it would automaticly change it in the box at the bottom.Im going to draw it up and email a picture of what I have in mind! Thanks

Thanks, David.

I think I understand it pretty well. It should make it into the next major version, if not sooner.

By the way, you can use the Code button to write text with a fixed pitch font:

Code: Select all
Phase  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8
Split 15 20 15 50 15 20 15 50
