VikRestaurants Tables Map

Thanks to the tables maps management you can design the structure of your rooms in order to make the system as similar as possible to your restaurant. This is pretty useful in terms of reservations management and to display to the customers the layout of your rooms.

You can start drawing a map by visiting the Restaurants > Table Maps page and clicking the Edit button placed on the toolbar. In this way you will be able to design the map for the room that have been selected (the first one available by default). It is mandatory to have created at least a room before visiting this page.

The map management is available since the first release of the program, which was re-designed starting from the 1.7.4 version. This documentation explains how to use the new version of the map management.

The maps management is built using different panels with different roles, all of them placed using the border layout pattern (from top-left to bottom-right: NORTH, WEST, CENTER, EAST, SOUTH).

The north panel includes the Toolbar. The west panel includes the Commands. The center panel includes the Canvas. The east panel includes the Inspector. The south panel includes the Status Bar.

Commands

The Commands panel contains a list of buttons that can be used to design the map. By hovering the mouse on the each button, you will read what they do and what is the shortcut that can be used to trigger it.

Toolbar

The Toolbar panel is divided in 2 parts: left side and right side.

The left side displays the parameters (if any) related to the current selected command. For example, while drawing a new table, you will be able to select the shape to use.

The right side contains a few buttons for the room management. Here you can find the button to save the whole project and the button to exit.

Canvas

Within the Canvas you can draw the tables of the room. This is the main design area.

Almost all the commands take effect while clicking the canvas.

Inspector

The Inspector contains the attributes settings for the canvas elements that have been selected. For example, after clicking the canvas, the Inspector will show all the settings to change the canvas layout, such the size, the background, the grid settings and so on.

Status Bar

The Status Bar reports a short description about the last action made. For example, after selecting one or more table, the Status Bar will display a text similar to "2 tables selected". Instead, after saving the map, it will write "Saved".
