The Car Tab allows one to enter new cars or delete cars from the database. It will also allow one to import mileage data in CSV from another program. It also will display any current alerts for the current selected car.
The Entry Tab allows one to enter mileage data one date at a time. Make sure that the correct car is selected in the menu above. The date must be in the form YYYY/MM/DD. The odometer entry must be an integer. Clicking "Today's Date" will enter the current date into the date field. A keypad is displayed for fast entry. If the previous time you filled up you did not record the reading then click on the "Click if no previous entry" button. When all data has been entered then press the "Submit Entry" button.
The Data Tab displays all the data for the car selected. It can display data for Mileage, Activity, Alerts, or Trips. The data can be sorted by selecting the headers of the columns. From this tab one can also delete entries from any of the four sets of data. To delete an entry, highlight it and select the "Delete Entry" button.
The Care Tab allows the user to enter Alerts and Activities. An Alert is a future event for your car such as an oil change. An Activity is an event that has already occured.
The Trip Tab lets you keep track of the miles that you drive during a trip. When you enter information you must enter the start odometer and start date. You can then submit partial data. When you complete your trip go to the Data Tab and select Display Trips. Then highlight the trip you just completed. This data will now be displayed on the Trip tab. Simply fill in the remaining information on the Trip Tab and submit. The old data will be deleted and the new data put in its place.
The Graph Tab allows you to plot data for the selected car. Currenly only three graphs are implemented, Mileage, Distance, and Cost. Data can be plotted for a specific year or for all years. It is hoped that as time goes on more graphs will be added.
