Browsing task list

Active task notion

As it was mentioned before, a task list is a set (list) of tasks. In BioDownloader you may have several tasks opened; they are enumerated in the task list. But for the sake of clarity, at the same time only one task can be active and available for viewing, applying task actions, viewing log, editing task settings, accepting the task changes, saving file, saving file as and etc.

The currently active task is highlighted. The first tab page is named with its filename. The Main Window title also has the filename of the currently active task.

b) The forth task, "NMR_restraints_zipped_all.task" is active for viewing, modifications, launch, etc.:
