Error description

  • In Graphical Scheduling when you have a PM based Schedule when
    you move one of the bars showing one of the instances when the
    PM is scheduled it should cause the row text to turn red
    signifying that the PM should be reforecasted and the Save
    button on the toolbar should undim but it is very inconsistent.
    
    With a PM with no hierarchy it seems to always turn the row red
    but never undims the Save button when dragging the bar.  Using
    the right click menu to move to next day it does not undim the
    Save button and the row does not turn red.
    
    With a PM hierarchy where each PM has a Job Plan with Planned
    Labor when dragging the bar to a new day the Save button undims
    and sometimes the row turns red and sometimes it does not turn
    red.
    Using the right click menu to move it to the next day the Save
    button undims but the row does not turn red, but then dragging
    it to a new day the row now turns red.
    
    Any and all moves either by dragging or using the right click
    menu should turn the row red and undim the Save button.
    
    Steps for no hierarchy case:
    1. Create a new PM, give it a Job Plan with Labor, any
    frequency and any due date.
    2. Save and change status to Active.
    3. Forecast it for 365 days.
    4. Create a new Schedule with an End Date of a year from now.
    Make sure the Calendar has been extended at least that long and
    that Shifts have been applied.
    5. Create a Work Query for Data Source PM and a Where Condition
    that selects the new PM.
    6. Save.
    7. Click on the Graphical View tab.
    8. Right click on a bar showing where the PM is scheduled and
    select Move To Next Day. The bar moves correctly but note that
    the row does not turn red and the Save button does not undim.
    9. Drag the bar to a new day. The bar moves correctly and now
    the row turns red but the Save button still does not undim.
    
    Steps for the hierarchy case:
    1. Create a new PM, give it a Job Plan with Labor, any
    frequency and any due date.
    2. Save and change status to Active.
    3. Create another PM, give it a Job Plan with Labor, any
    frequency and any due date.
    4. On the PM Hierarchy tab enter the PM number of the first PM
    in the Parent field.
    5. Save and change status to Active.
    6. Go back to the first PM.
    7. Forecast it for 365 days. This will also create a Forecast
    for the Child PM. Both Forecasts will be exactly the same using
    the earlier of the 2 due dates and the smaller of the 2
    frequencies.
    8. Create a new Schedule with an End Date of a year from now.
    Make sure the Calendar has been extended at least that long and
    that Shifts have been applied.
    9. Create a Work Query for Data Source PM and a Where Condition
    that selects the new parent PM. It can select the Child, too,
    though only the Parent is shown on the Graphical View
    10. Save.
    11. Click on the Graphical View tab.
    12. Drag a bar to a new day and the Save button undims but
    sometimes the row does not turn red and sometimes it does turn
    red. You can click on Discard Changes and Refresh inbetween
    trials.
    13. Use the Right click menu to Move to next day abd Save will
    undims but the row does not turn red . Then drag it to another
    day and now the row turns red.
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS
    Any and all moves either by dragging or using the right click
    menu should turn the row red and undim the Save button.
