On the top
section of the Vehicles module we find a filter for Active and Inactive
vehicles, this option is very useful in case we sell a vehicle o
disactivate it for any reason. All data remains in the database, you may
enter additional notes to explain the reason for status change.
We can also see a line of buttons that do different
functions, the one with the magnifying glass is to see the information
report about the selected vehicle. The next icon is to see the photo of the
vehicle in real size, then a button to open the vehicle's folder, next
another icon to refresh the database, another to do the escape key, and
an icon with a little door to exit the module. To become more efficient
using the program, get familiar with the icons .
To add a new vehicle we do it from the navigation buttons under the
photograph. The one with the arrow pointing forward and the star. When we add a vehicle, the system creates a folder in the
directory Vehicle_Management with title the number plates, that folder is
very useful to store the vehicles photo and other important documents.
When you add a vehicle, the lock function is activated to avoid
accidental modification or deletion of the vehicle's identity. To delete
records you do it from a separate form, this is to ensure more security to your
as all modules
in the database has a search combo. These combos allow search by items or by
dates. To insert a photo in the vehicle's form, you click the button
photo and it takes you to the Windows explorer, there you select
whatever you want from your hard disk or network.
Another very important section of Vehicles is
found in page 2, this you find by pressing the vertical bar on the right.
There are 3 options for insurance
alarms and 4 more to suit your needs. These alarms go yellow during the
month previous to expiry date, when you open the form they trigger a chime
sound to alert you. Once the date expires the buttons turn red and you
hear a different alarm which will present a little dialogue box reminding
you about an expired date.
The icon retains the photograph of
the vehicle to provide easier and more pleasant navigation for your car
