The user catalog allows the user to define and store own cross sections and their characteristics that appear in a sheeting structure. At first use of the catalog (has not been yet created) the program prompts a warning message that no catalog was found. Then, pressing the button "OK" opens the "Save as" dialog window that allows to enter the catalog name and saving it into a specified location by pressing the "Save" button (by default a folder used for saving the project data is assumed).
The program allows the user to create more than one catalog. The next catalog is created by pressing the "New" button - the program asks, whether the current catalog should be replaced (the currently loaded catalog is not deleted!) and saves the new catalog under a new name. The "Open" button allows for load an arbitrary user catalog and by pressing the "Save as" button for saving it under a different name.
"Export TXT" button allows for exporting of currently loaded user catalog to text file.
Dialog window at first use - user catalog of cross sections
The "User's catalog" dialog window contains a table listing the user defined cross sections. The “Add item” button opens the “New catalog item” dialog window that allows for specifying and subsequent saving of characteristics of a new cross section into the catalog. Buttons “Edit item” and “Remove item” serve to edit individual items in the table.
The "Accept current" button accepts the current cross sectional characteristics of a cross section specified in the "New section" dialog window and opens the "New catalog item" dialog window that allows for modifying and saving the current cross section.
