Burger Menu and Toolbar

The Funktionsleiste burger menu and the Funktionsleiste2 toolbar are an integral part of the Spaix selection program


The Burgermenu


The burger menu is located at the left edge of the start window as well as at the left edge of the dialogs for project editing, and it contains the following buttons:


Burgermenü_Current project

This button leads to the current project with the options for project creation and editing.

Burgermenü_New project

This button creates a new project. Clicking on this button leads to the start page of the selection program, where you can start a new selection.


This button opens the area for opening another project.


This button opens the Save area where you can save changes to the current project or save the project under a new name.





This button opens the Export area. The following options are available here:


Burgermenü_Project database

This button opens the Project database dialog.

Burgermenü_Project history

The project history makes it possible to track changes and limit them in time. It also shows which user changed the project and when.




Burgermenü_Contact data administration

This button opens the Contact data administration dialog.


In the settings, the default contact of the supplier can be selected in the My Address area via the Kontaktdaten button. A contact record specified here is applied to new projects and e. g. automatically inserted into data sheets.
In the Kind of storage area you can define where projects are stored. By default, the Spaix selection program is linked to a project database (see next option Database connection).

When saving in Project database, the saving takes place in this project database.

When saving In opened data source, on the other hand, a project imported as a CEF file is saved again in the file from which it was imported.


Burgermenü_Database Connection

This dialog can be used for defining the connection to the databases, to the document directory and to the license file.




Database directories


Spaix uses three different databases, performing the following functions:

Product database - vsSpaix

Program translation database - vsProgram

Project information - vsProject


The user defines the connection type for the three databases in the upper field of the corresponding register. The following two options are available for this purpose:

Microsoft Access

Microsoft SQL-Server


If a Microsoft Access is used, the file name as well as the directory must be determined.


For the use of an SQL server, the connection string has to be specified. This string contains the connection parameters, which must be separated by a semicolon. Necessary parameters are:


User ID=

Data Source=



Document directories

Enter the corresponding path for the document directory.



The documents have to be stored in subdirectories specific to the make, using the manufacturer's code as the directory name.


License information


Using the full functionality of the program requires a license file. Enter the path to license file (SpaixDB.lic) in the corresponding field. If the file is correct, the licensee and the licensed application will be displayed informatively.


Burgermenü_Info about
