When moving through the screens, clicking Cancel prompts the user to exit the current window without accepting any changes, returning to the Admin main window.
Specifying Message and Status Codes This section defines Message and Status Codes and their formats. Selecting the Message check box enables selection of radio buttons for either All Message Codes or Message Codes* as shown above. Selecting the radio button for All Message Codes will monitor all available message codes.
Specifying Sorting Criteria The Inbound Event Display Wizard provides the ability to sort events based on received time. Sorting ability is grouped into Classifications, and within that group the Order within Classifications. Classifications include Primary Resource, Event State such as Hold, Acknowledged and Unacknowledged, and Event Type such as Radio Message and Radio Status.
When the sorting screen is accessed via Customize from the Summary dialog, the screen shown above changes to include a section where the user can select Received Time Order: Note: Refer to the Sorting Scenarios on Page 5-17. Elite Admin Configuration 6880801D90-D 6880801D90-D...
Configuration Summary from the Wizard At the end of the Inbound Event Display Wizard process, the Configuration Summary screen shows an Inbound Event Display Interface Preview region at the top of the window. A window pane for Properties and Customize is located on the left, containing elements of this configuration organized in the familiar "tree"...
Customization The Inbound Event Display configuration can be customized by accessing the Configuration Summary screen from the main Admin window, under Edit then selecting Inbound Event Display. Note: When Configuration Summary is accessed from Dispatch, only the item Preferences can be modified. The Configuration Summary screen shows an Inbound Event Display Interface Preview region at the top, and organized in the familiar "tree"...
Preferences dialog Four regions displayed in the Preferences dialog are General Information, Log to File, Enable Audible Indication, and Customize Inbound Event Display. In General Information an administrator can select: Name: Type a new name for the display. Show the Inbound Event Display upon Dispatch startup. Show the Preview tile in the Inbound Event Display window.
Note: If the log file is not backed up once the designated file size limit is reached, data thereafter will be lost. Also note that a separator line is added to the log file after each Dispatch session. This happens when Dispatch is started up or the dispatch user changes to another configuration file then back to the current configuration file.
Resource Display Filter Filters and Sorting Dialogs The Resource Display Filter allows a user to select resources to be monitored by the Inbound Event Display. Selecting the checkbox for Radio enables the list of either All resources, selecting Primary or Non- Primary resources.
Message Code Display Filter dialog The Message Code Display Filter dialog provides an administrator the ability to choose the details of which radio message codes are displayed in the Inbound Event Display . For individual or set of monitored resources, specific Messages Codes or ranges of Messages Codes can be selected.
Specifying Message Codes for Monitored Resources When entering Message Codes, integers (whole numbers), are used. The Customize Message Code Display Filter dialog has groups of controls, organized into regions for: All Monitored Resources Primary/Non-Primary Resources, grouped into either All Primary or All Non-Primary can be specified.
are configured to display different Message Codes, the radio buttons are initialized to be empty. The rationale behind this is so the Administrator can redefine a group of Resources displaying different Message Codes, to display the same set of Message Codes. Specifying the Message Code option for a selected Resource(s) automatically checks the items for the Resource if the resources have not been checked previously.
Sorting dialog The Customize Inbound Event Display Sorting dialog provides an administrator the ability to specify the received time sorting order and the classification sorting order. The default setting is Oldest on Top (meaning First-in-First-Displayed). This means the oldest event will always be shown on the top of the list, with others shown chronologically after it.
Sorting Scenarios To demonstrate the implications of sorting, the following scenario shows how the displayed list of content changes in the Inbound Event Display as sorting parameters are selected. The first example shows the table of initial displayed content before sorting is applied.
2 Sort by Received Time Order then Primary/non-Primary If the “Oldest on Top” (First-in-First-Displayed) was selected as shown in the Received Time Order above,, then the selection is made to sort first by Primary Resource (where RSC_A and RSC_B are Primary and where RSC_C and RSC_D are non-primary), and second by Event Status (e.g.
3 Event State placed first in the Order of Classifications This next example assumes that Event State is placed first in the Order of Classifications. The Inbound Event Display would display: Inbound Event State Acknowledged Acknowledged Acknowledged Unacknowledged Unacknowledged Held Held Elite Admin Configuration UNIT_ID...
4 Monitor Message and Status Codes This example assumes the selection is made to monitor Message and Status Codes by adding Event Type then positioning at the top of the Order of Classifications window (with the arrow buttons), Event State first, Event Type second then Primary Resource third.
Operations dialog The Customize Inbound Event Display Operations dialog contains three regions: Operations Menu Items Inbound Event Display Toolbar Double-click Action Each of the items listed in the Operations Menu Items can be selected as indicated by the checkboxes to appear in the dropdown menu of the Inbound Event Display interface.
The Icon buttons shown on the Toolbar pane can be repositioned with the arrow buttons. As well, a user can use the Separator button to add a separator/space between icon buttons appearing on the toolbar. To choose what will happen when the user double-clicks on any event, open the double-click menu and choose either Acknowledge or Hold.
Chapter 6 This chapter describes operator use of the Inbound Event Display. The following graphics illustrate the typical components of an Inbound Event Display : Resource Tile Column title button Primary Resource Indicator Status Indicator Error Log Dispatch Operation with Inbound Event Display Dispatch Operation with Inbound Event Display Drop down menus...
Dropdown Menus and Handling Events The Inbound Event Display window contains drop-down menus for Inbound Event Display, Operations, View, and Help. The functions that operators can take on events, using buttons and selecting items in the Operations drop-down menu, are described in the next section "Responding to Events."...
Responding to Events To respond to entries in the Inbound Event Display operators should first understand the implications for taking actions on events in the queue. These implications become clear when operators understand the functions of the Inbound Event Display operations buttons and menu selections in the following sections.
Menu Operations and Buttons The following table outlines operator actions available in the Inbound Event Display: Button Menu Item Acknowledge Acknowledge Next Hold Delete Clear Error Line Deleting All 6880801D90-D 6880801D90-D Description This function selects and Acknowledges a resource signified with a Green checkmark; it Holds a previously Acknowledged event or Deletes it (depending on how the feature has been configured *).
Delete by Unit Delete by Resource Event Status Indicators A graphic indicator for an event's State can appear at the far left of the Inbound Event Display queue as shown in the table below, such as Hold or Acknowledge. A graphic Status indicator shows what action has been taken on an event.
Handling Events in the Queue Some examples for handling events in the queue include Acknowledging, Acknowledging the next event at the top of the list, deleting a selected event, deleting all events for a resource, or Holding an event. Some actions populate the resource tile while other actions do not, in both the Inbound Event Display and on the Dispatch desktop (if visible in the currently selected folder).
Double-clicking causes the item to be selected and Acknowledged, while automatically changing the previously acknowledged event to Hold. Clicking the Delete button deletes the selected event, sets the resource tile blank and only the Acknowledge Next button in the toolbar remains active. Clicking Acknowledge Next performs the same actions as Acknowledge except it automatically acknowledges the item at the top of the list with a single click of the icon.
Modify Inbound Event Display Preferences From the main Dispatch interface select the drop-down Edit menu then select Inbound Event Display. The Configuration Summary screen shows the name of the Inbound Event Display configuration in the window title bar as well as the folder in the Properties and Customize window at lower left.
The following table shows example information when clicking on Preferences. The items below can be modified after clicking the Customize button: General Information Name: Inbound Event Display Show Inbound Event Display: Enable Audible Indication Customize Inbound Event Display Total Rows: 100 Selected Content: 1.
Registry values can be used to control the behavior of certain aspects of the IED interface. The following table summarizes these values.
