Slider Button not viewable during database replay/Quick view

If when trying to replay a database using Quick View via the Windows GUI (depending on how much data was collected in the database), tabular windows will be created for each record collected by the database displaying all fields collected for that record - and the reason to use the Slider Control would be so you could position your Database replay at a specific date and time by dragging the "thumb track" backwards or forwards to the desired position.

Re: Slider Button not viewable during database replay/Quick view

Summary:

If when trying to replay a database using Quick View via the Windows GUI (depending on how much data was collected in the database), tabular windows will be created for each record collected by the database displaying all fields collected for that record - and the reason to use the Slider Control would be so you could position your Database replay at a specific date and time by dragging the "thumb track" backwards or forwards to the desired position.

 

Issue:

Sometimes by default in the irgui.ini file (\Prognosis\User Interface), there's a section under "Replay" that'll look like this - with some defaulted numbers in the slider position:

 

[Replay]
SliderVisible=0
SliderPosition=(left=1583,top=1233,right=1098,bottom=199)

 

The issue is you cannot find the Slider Control when selecting the slider button in the Windows GUI.  Reason being the Slider Position lines in the irgui.ini are defaulted to random numbers that are too large for the slider controller to fit in the tabular window screen.  So you must change that in that irgui.ini file as follows in the Solution part below.

 

Solution:

Change the Slider positions "left & "Top" to =0 for both.  So it should look like this. Should be able to leave the "Right & Bottom" alone:

[Replay]
SliderVisible=0
SliderPosition=(left=0,top=0,right=1098,bottom=199)

 

But remember, the ini file is read when you open up the GUI.  So once you can't see the slider:

 

  1. Close the Replay Window you just opened.
  2. Log out of the Prognosis thick client
  3. Navigate to the \Prognosis\UserInterface directory and open up the irgui.ini file and then make the change
  4. Then log/connect back into Prognosis Thick Client
  5. Launch the Database Replay you opened when trying to use the slider control and it should pop up and be visible. 

**NOTE**

Remember for irgui.ini to take the change, need to log out of Prognosis as the ini file is read when you open the GUI.

Re: Slider Button not viewable during database replay/Quick view

Another way is to us the windows "move window" feature.

Click on the "show Slider" button while in prognosis to make the slider the active window,  then press "ALT-space" then press "M" then use the arrow keys to move the slider until you see it.
