The log heading is a WYSIWYG form program that allows the user to enter data about a
job in a form that looks exactly like the printed form that is delivered to the customer.
Some of the technical challenges in this program are:
|Standard forms defined in inches are used for data entry and the final output.|
|Some forms are rotated 90 degree when printed.|
|Fields with units must be converted during presentation according to unit class
associated with the field.|
|User can dynamically change the label fields as well as the data fields.|
|Data can be displayed using non-western character set--National Language Support|
|Ability to import from other jobs.|
|Ability to print to image files.|
The primary object in the Log Heading is a form object that uses the same drawing code
to render to the screen, the print
preview, a printer or to an image file.
