View I want to add color to my service types in a Dispatcher grid

How to set your service types to different colors

Adding color to Dispatcher grids allows fleet controllers to view a screen and quickly determine, based on displayed colors, what different types of vehicles (Services in Hudson-ese) are on the road, or will be needed in the coming hours.  The process is pretty straight forward but requires some familiarty with creating or editing gdf’s (Grid Definition Files).

For this article, we will assume you already have a Reservations or Trip Grid built, but you now want to add color to that grid:

Click on any column header in your grid and select Grid Layout
Locate the Field Name = ServiceType
Place check marks in the boxes:  “Show?” and either “Row status?” or “Cell Status?”
  Note: If you select Row Status - the entire row will change color based on the type of service.
        If you select Cell Status - only the cell that shows the Service Type will change color.

I suggest you select “Cell Status?”
Select   Apply and OK at the bottom of the Grid Layout dialog.
Save changes to your Grid.

Click on any column header in your grid and select Grid Properties.
Select the Cell Status Colors tab
Double click the field under “Column” - scroll to and select ServiceType
Double click the field under BC (Background Color) - Select your desired color for first service (Ex: Yellow)
Double click the field under ServiceType column header - select the service type to apply the color to (ex: Sedan)
  (Click OK at the bottom of the dialog box to see the color applied to your grid - in the Service type fields.)
Double click the 2nd field under “Column” - scroll to and select ServiceType
Double click the 2nd field under BC (Background Color) - Select your desired color for first service (Ex: Green)
Double click the 2nd field under ServiceType column header - select the service type to apply the color to (ex: Van)
  (Click OK at the bottom of the dialog box to see the color applied to your grid - in the Service type fields.)

Repeat this last step above, until you have assigned colors to all the Service Types, or those that you want colorized.

You can return to the Grid Properties at any time and adjust the color schemes according to your desire.

Make sure you remember to Save the changes to your grid!
