Compiled Applications Dialog
Applicability: Cranium, Synapse (core versions 0315+)

The applications field is part of the Chemicals chapter's Categories Section. The section enables you to store common applications for each chemical entity in the knowledge base. The Compiled Applications Dialog compiles chemicals and clusters them by application. This clustering can be useful for identifying commonalities and when designing mixtures. See the Category Chemicals Dialog document for additional details.

Dialog Controls

The Compiled Applications Dialog enables you to view and edit the common applications of the current chemical.

Data Control: the dialog's table control displays the current list of chemical applications. Clicking the left mouse button on a table row selects that table row. Clicking and holding the left mouse button down and then dragging the mouse will select several table rows. Double-clicking the left mouse button on a row, edits that row's data.
Edit Button: pressing the dialog's Edit button activates the Chemical Application edit dialog. See below for documentation.
Commands Button: pressing the dialog's Commands button, or clicking the right mouse button on the table control, displays the commands menu. This menu provides standard commands for copying, pasting, and clearing values. See the documentation on Common Menu Commands for details.
Sort Button: the dialog's Sort button will be enabled if two or more rows are selected. Pressing the Sort button will sort the selected values alphabetically in ascending order.
Add Rows Button: pressing the Add Rows button will add rows to the bottom of the table control.
Editing a Chemical Application

Pressing the Compiled Chemical Applications Dailog's Edit button or double-clicking the left mouse button on a row in the dialog's table control activates the Chemical Application Edit dialog. This dialog enables you to enter a value for the application as well as supporting information.

Application Control: enables you to enter a text value for the chemical's application.
List Button: pressing the application list button displays a list of common applications. It is recommended to use this list for consistency. Very often you can modifiy a common entry by adding more descriptive information at the end, e.g., adding "Bannana" to the end of the "Fragrance chemical" application as shown in the example images on this page.
Reference Control: the Reference control enables you to enter the identifier of the reference from which you obtained the application value. You can type in a value or use the dropdown list to select a recently entered value. Entering a reference is optional but highly recommended.
List Button: pressing the reference list button displays the Reference Selection dialog. This dialog enables you to select the identifier of any reference in the current document. (See the All Entities dialog documentation for more details on selecting references.)
Comments Control: the Comments control enables you to enter general information to better describe the entered value. Very often comments document the date of entry, the name of the person who entered the value, and details about the entered value (e.g., a chemical no longer used for the entered application due to environmental concerns).
Date, Phrase, Set Buttons: these buttons provide standard operations to help you enter comments. Pressing the Date button inserts the current date and time into the comment control. Pressing the Phrase button inserts the stored 'common phrase' into the comment control. Pressing the Set button enables you to change the 'common phrase'. (See documentation on the Set Phrase dialog for details.
Show Ref Button: pressing the Show Ref button will display the document associated with cited reference. The location of this document is stored in the reference's Document Location Section.
