Package Name group, together with the Package Definition group, allows you to view the list of existing flight package layouts, create new ones, copy existing layouts, delete package layouts no longer considered useful, and adjust the components within a flight package layout.
The Package Name group lists the names of the existing flight package layouts in alphabetical order.
Clicking on a layout name in the lists loads the corresponding flight package layout into the Package Contents list (unsaved changes will be lost).
When no row is selected (the default) all controls are disabled except for the Add and Refresh buttons along with the Package Name list. Selecting a row enables all other functions (Save, Save As and Delete).
Adding a Flight Package Layout
Clicking the Add button will open the Add Package Layout dialog.
This allows you to specify the name for the new flight package layout.
The Package Name field is limited to 30 alphanumerical characters (including spaces).
Clicking the Add button will:
create a flight package layout with the specified name initialized with default components
include the new flight package layout in the Package Name list
select the new flight package layout
Clicking the Cancel button will close the dialog without adding a new flight package layout.
Deleting a Flight Package Layout
Clicking the Delete button opens the Delete Package Layout dialog.
This allows the user to confirm or cancel the operation.
If the Delete button is clicked the dialog is closed, the loaded flight package layout will be deleted from the database and the corresponding row in the Package Name list will be removed. The Save, Save As and Delete buttons will also be disabled.
Clicking the Cancel button closes the dialog without deleting the selected flight package layout.
Modifying a Flight Package Layout
You can modify an existing package layout by selecting it from the Package Name list, and then dragging components into and out of the Package Contents list. Components that are available to add to the flight package layout are listed in the Available Components list. Components must be dragged into a Section in the Package Contents list. Refer to the Package Contents list for more information.
To save the modified flight package layout using the current name, click the Save button. The message Saved flight package layout: (layout name) is displayed.
To save the modified flight package layout under a new name, click on the Save As button. The Save As dialog opens with the current name of the flight package layout in the Package Name field. This allows the user to save the flight package layout or cancel the operation.
Enter the desired name for the modified flight package layout and click the Save button. If the Save button is clicked without changing the flight package layout name, an error occurs and the save is aborted.
Clicking the Cancel button closes the dialog without saving the selected flight package layout.
Refreshing the Package Name List
Click on the Refresh button to refresh the Package Name list.
