Use this page to define email that will be automatically sent to students when a student is marked as absent.

The program application has preprogrammed values that are used to sent the student the proper message depending on the total number or total consecutive absences of record for the student in the class being processed.

DataGridView   This is a data/grid/view control; it allows you to select a record and view the contents of each field.  You can also change the value associated with each of the fields shown.  When you move to another row within the grid the changes made within the fields of the previous row are saved.

 It is possible to use these fields to view and edit the data associated with them.  The various data types have a variety of control types used to best fit the need to display and edit the values.  Because of the Large number of data elements and available methods are used to assist you in tracking the state of each control.  As information is altered the BackColor of the control changes depending on the state of the control data.  If Edited the BackColor is Yellow, if Saved it is shown as Light Green, if the value is restored after an edit that is canceled the BackColor is shown as Light Blue.

    This paragraph field and the other numbered paragraph fields allow entry of the associated paragraph number into the message record.  If a paragraph is blank it will not be used in the message sent to the student or professor.  It is not known if the existence of a blank paragraph would cause any following paragraphs with valid data to be sent.  I would recommend not having blank paragraphs between valid ones.
