The One-Time Dates Tab

Scroll Prev Top Next More

 

The One-Time-Dates Tab of the holidays manager is used to create, delete, modify, and generally manage, one-time-dates.

 

In contrast to recurring holidays which have a complex structure of rules which applies to both past and future years, One-Time-Dates are a simple list of dates, which usually cannot be forecast, such as the list of trade fairs in a country, or listing of horse races, for example.

 

Each One-Time-Date is associated with a Date, a Name, an Abbreviation string and a Symbol string (though in the case of One-Time-Dates, these last 2 fields are often used for other information, as is shown in the example above).

 

Buttons and Tool Menu

 

At the left of the one-time-dates toolbar are buttons to add, delete or modify one-time-dates, as well as a button to open the toolbar menu as shown on the right.

 

The various menu elements are:

 

Copy one-time-dates from: opens a dialog to copy one-time-dates from another set (from any holidays set to the currently selected holidays set).

Import from Excel: opens the import one-time-dates from Excel dialog.

Export to Excel: opens the export one-time-dates to Excel dialog.

Batch processing: displays a set of sub-menu items with various command that operate on every one-time-date of the current set, such as changing the text of all one-time-date to lowercase, uppercase, plain (remove italics or bold) of every one-time-date of the current set.

Abbreviations: displays a dialog with various options to fill all the one-time-dates of the current holidays set with abbreviations.

Symbols: displays a set of sub-menu items with various options to fill all one-time-dates of the current holidays set with symbols.

Reset priority level: displays a dialog to reset the priority of every one-time-date of the currently selected holidays set.

Reset watermark: displays a set of sub-menu items to either turn on or off the watermark setting for every one-time-date of the currently selected holidays set.

The Navigator can be used to move the grid to a specific date range.

 

If you scroll the grid manually , then the values in the Navigator are automatically updated.
