Status Bar

The Status Bar is located at the bottom of the Flight Planning window. It is a dynamic display that gives you feedback on the data entered in the Plan and Route screens. The status bar is divided into four panels (from left to right of the screen): 

  • the Message panel

  • the Context Message panel

  • the Transmission Reporting panel

  • the Alerts panel.

Message Panel

This panel consists of error, warning, and information icons, and the most recent message summary line. For example, if the last message were a Compute Failed message, that message summary would appear in the text portion of the Error panel. The error, warning, and information icons are illuminated to indicate the type of message being displayed.

In addition, you can click the Message panel to open a message log dialog. The pop-up contains a clear button and two sort buttons. The clear button allows the user to clear the log. Clearing the log will cause the message panel icons to revert to their unlit state. The sort up and down buttons allow you to change the sort order from descending to ascending. The number of messages shown on the display is limited to a maximum of 10 messages.

Context Message Panel

This panel shows context-sensitive messages and errors that reflect the focus of the active field. If the active field has an incorrect entry, the Context Message panel turns pink and displays an error message.

Transmission Reporting Panel

N-Flight Planning (N-FP) gives you the ability to view details, such as recipients or sent date-time, for past transmissions. For flights that have had one or more report transmissions, a message will appear in the status bar. Clicking the transmission count on the status bar will open a pop-up with summary information for all report transmissions related to the loaded flight. Clicking anywhere outside the pop-up closes it.

Each row in the list corresponds to a particular report transmission.The first column indicates:

  •  - The transmission refers to an ATC message

    • The icon turns green (ACK ATC) when an acknowledgment for the ATC message is received.

    • The icon turns red (REJ ATC) when we receive a rejected message from ATC.

  •  - The transmission refers to a Flight package.

The second column indicates a date-time value. For a past transmission, it represents when it occurred. For a pending transmission, it represents when it is scheduled to take place.

The third column indicates whether the message:

  • was successfully transmitted, which is shown by the  icon followed by the associated flight revision number.

  • failed to transmit, which is shown by the  icon.

  • is pending, which is shown by an empty column.

Editing/Deleting Pending Report Transmissions

Clicking on a report transmission row for a pending transmission opens the Edit Pending ATC Message dialog. This allows you to amend or delete that particular item. Click the Send button after editing to send the message. Click the Delete button to delete the message. Click the Cancel button to close the Edit Pending ATC Message dialog without saving changes.

Viewing Transmitted Report Details

Clicking on a report transmission row for a past transmission opens the Flight Package Message Details dialog. This window is read-only. This allows users to view details not included on the list, such as the list of recipients, in a familiar format.

Alerts Panel

The alerts panel number and status of alerts in the system.

The color and state of the alert icon provides the following information:

  • - All alerts have been read and are illustrated by a static icon.

  • - Less than 10 unread alerts are present in the system. It is illustrated by a static icon followed by the number of unread alerts in parentheses.

  • - 10 or more unread alerts are present in the system. It is illustrated by a pulsating icon followed by the number of unread alerts in parentheses.
