Unique names

The Unique names option controls whether to use user defined short names on the Reg and Display screens or not.

If disabled, dancers will be identified by the short name defined in their user record. If short names are not unique, this might lead to confusion.

If enabled, the program will generate short names, these will be unique among all dancers displayed on the Reg screen. The program uses the first name of the dancers as short name; if there are duplicates, it will add so many letters from the last name which are necessary to generate a unique name.

Note: User defined short names will get lost when enabling this option.

Note: Short names might change during a dance session, if previously unlisted dancers register and would otherwise lead to duplicate short names.
