    Veculim Basics

    Veculim screens are navigated by using the Tab button or by using the mouse to directly select a button, field entry box, list, etc. Using the Enter key will result in the current highlighted button being activated rather than, as some systems do, completing data entry in the current field.


    Veculim makes use of a lot of colour and picture icons to indicate a variety of record states, conditions and to highlight potential problem areas. The most commonly used icons are the three different coloured "LEDs", Red, Amber and Green which indicate a problem, a caution and a valid status.

    Pausing the mouse pointer over an icon willl in most cases result in a pop-up "Tip" message providing more details on what the specific button or control will do.


    Another common use of colour is for required fields and system completed fields. The Pink fields indicate Required fields, and the Blue ones indicate that the system will fill it in automatically.

    File details (records) are displayed (listed) in "browse forms" which, depending on the data concerned, will (can) be "filtered" to display only selected records (such as by date, by job, by supplier, etc.) Selection of the filter conditions can be achieved by the following means:

    • Using "Show" check boxes

                                                                             show:       Image 5.png

    • Using selection fields

    • Using a data range

    Veculim further allows individual users to customise their browse screens as follows:

    • Columns can be resized. Move the mouse pointer to the column border and when the"double arrow" resize appears hold down the left mouse button and drag the column either to the left or the right.
    • Columns can be hidden/displayed. The display sequence can be changed and individual columns can be locked in place. Simply place the mouse pointer on a column heading and right click. A menu with two options (Columns... and HIde Column) will appear. Selecting "Columns..." will pop-up the following screen where you can customise the columns to meet your needs.

    WARNING: If you Hide columns and you forget which ones you have hidden you may find yourself looking for information which is no longer displayed on the browse screen.


    Browse windows have "VCR" type buttons to enhance record access by scrolling through the records based on the VCR button used. This can move directly to the last / first record, move up / down a page at a time or move up / down one record at a time. 

                                                                                            Image 9.png


    Several browse windows have a "Send To" button. Clicking on this button will allow the user to "send" the data displayed in the browser to be printed as a report, emailed or exported to a variety of file formats. An example of the Send To screen is shown below.

    Veculim also permits users to customise their screen display by changing the standard font type, font style and font size (see "Select Font" option on the "Tools" Menu).


    Users sometimes "drag" window displays and end up placing them outside of the program display and then can not get access to that part of the screen that is "outside" the program frame. This situation can be addressed by selecting the "Clear Postition" option on the "Tools" Menu.


    The following table provides some additional information on the system usage.

       Image 11.png This icon displays a legend to indicate what each record colour / icon means.
        Image 12.png Where ever this icon is displayed at the bottom right of the window, it is an indication that this wndow is resizable.
        Capture dormant.PNG Indicates a dormant record. Records that have not been used for 120 days or more, will be changed to dormant and can be viewed if preferred, by clicking this icon.
     [-]  [+]  

    Various columns can be arranged in sequence by clicking on the column header. Columns that are selected to sort, will indicate either of these icons as indicated on the left.

    To remove the sort order, simply hold the shift key in and de-select the column.

    Multiple columns can also be selected by holding the ctrl key down and selecting the columns in sequence of sorting.

    The following buttons indicate a pop up, where you can select the relevant record details. 

    You can choose to type in the required details, by entering the text in the text box, and drop down list will appear with the possible selections.

    When the X is clicked, the text box will be cleared and all records displayed again.

    When the v is clicked, a drop down list of possible selections will be displayed.

    When the Image 15.png is clicked, the window will be displayed, allowing you to search for and select the required details.

       Image 13.png The help button will re-direct you to the relevant self-help page where you are guided step for step.
