Getin/Getout - View a record

The Getin/Getout - View a Record window displays a specific record within a selected getin/getout database.

The name of the getin/getout database, the record number, and master ID (if any) are displayed within the window title.

You can navigate forward or backward within the record set as well as jump to specific records within the database. The viewed record can be edited, parsed, proofread, deleted (or un-deleted), or marked as used. Also, a new record can be created.


Depending upon how this window was accessed, not all menu options may be available.

  • Add new record  Ctrl+N
    Creates a new record in the current getin/getout database with the same perm number (i.e., formation, dancer arrangement, and dancer facing directions) and allows you to edit it.
  • Edit record  Ctrl+E
    Edits the currently displayed record. Alternatively, double-clicking within the text box edits the record.
  • Toggle delete  Ctrl+D
    Toggles the deleted status of the currently displayed record between 'not deleted' and 'deleted'. The record is not actually deleted, but a flag is set within the record marking it as deleted. Records marked as deleted have the text string 'RECORD MARKED AS DELETED' displayed across the window in large red letters.
  • Proofread record
    Attempts to proofread the highlighted record.
    • For getin records, the program checks that when starting from a squared set and executing the highlighted calls, the dancers end in the displayed ending formation.
    • For getout records, the program checks that when starting from the displayed formation and executing the highlighted calls, a valid resolution results.
    • After proofreading, the proofread status of the highlighted record is updated to a 'Yes' or "no' as appropriate.
  • Parse record
    Parses the highlighted record.
  • Close  Ctrl+Q
    Closes this window, returning to the previous window.

  • Find a record  Ctrl+F
    Searches the current getin/getout database for a set of records matching a specific criteria.
  • Find next  F3
    Starts at the currently displayed record and searches for the next record in the database that matches the current search criteria.
  • Find previous  Ctrl+F3
    Displays the previous record in the database that matches the current search criteria.

  • Find by Master ID  Ctrl+M
    Prompts for the master ID of the record to be displayed.
  • Find by Record #  Ctrl+R
    Prompts for the record number to be displayed. This menu option can be skipped by simply typing a record number followed by the Enter key.
  • First record in database  Home or Ctrl+F11
    Displays the first record (record #1) within the database.
  • Previous record  PgUp or F11
    Displays the previous record in the record set.
  • Next record  PgDn or F12
    Displays the next record in the record set.
  • Last record in database  End or Ctrl+F12
    Displays the last record within the database.
  • Previously viewed record  F5
    Displays the previously displayed record. This is similar to an undo command: if a record is inadvertently displayed, this option can be used to return to the previously displayed record.
  • Last sorted record
    Displays the last record within the sorted portion of the database.
  • Change database and/or index  F8
    Change database changes the current database. For example, if you are viewing getouts and find a particularly nice one, you may wish to write an opening biggie with it. To do so, change the database to the GETIN database and the program then displays the first record within the GETIN database with the same formation. You can then navigate to subsequent records via PgDn or F2.

  • Use normally  Ctrl+U
    Increments one of the count fields within the record. The count fields indicate the number of times that the getin/getout record was used within your sequences.
  • Use as quickie  Ctrl+K
    Use as quickie Ctrl+Q increments the 'Quickie count' of the current record by 1. The 'Quickie count' is intended to count how many times the record was used within an 'opening biggie'. You should increment the quickie count whenever you use a particular getin or getout record within an opening biggie sequence. The quick count is particularly useful when automatically generating opening biggies, since you can easily determine which getins and getouts have already been used in opening biggies.

  • Show progression
    Shows the progression for this getin/getout.
  • Formation bitmap  Ctrl+B
    Shows the formation bitmap for this getin/getout.
