This page describes the main application interface including toolbars, buttons, and dialog windows in Weather Defender.


1 - Interface Overview

The main interface is divided up into four parts: toolbars, workspace, dialog windows, and status bar.

1.1 Toolbars

1.1.1 Map Tab

1.1.2 Team Tab

1.1.3 Interface Tab

1.1.4 Help Tab

1.1.5 Shield Menu

1.1.6 Quick Access Toolbar Menu

1.2 Workspace

1.3 Dialog Windows

Dialog Windows are the semi-transparent windows that appear over top of the workspace area.

1.4 Status Bar

2 - Customizing the Interface

The interface is highly customizable and can be modified to suit your exact preferences.

2.1 Color & Themes

The application shell (main window) is black by default, but this theme can be changed to Blue or Silver using the Interface Tab > Theme options. You may further tint a selected theme using the color picker.

2.2 Dialog Window Placement

All Dialog Windows can be moved to any position on the Windows Desktop by left-clicking in the title area of the window and dragging, just as you would any other application in Windows. Dialog Windows will remain fixed at the position you drag them unless they are "snapped" to the border of the workspace area, in which case they will move with the main application whenever it is moved.

A Dialog Window may be "snapped" to the workspace area by dragging it within 5 pixels of the top, bottom, left, or right of the workspace edge.

Additionally, you may "dock"
