This is the Main Tool bar. From left to right we have -
i) TBM - Gruss Connection Switches - As the label says this switch is the main switch for connecting TBM to Gruss Betfair or Gruss Betdaq. When this switch is OFF no data is fetched from Gruss or sent to Gruss. No bets can therefore be placed. Each instance of TBM can only be connected to Betfair OR Betdaq. Not Both.
ii) Global TBM Settings - This will open a new screen where you will find settings that are for the entire program. These settings include Profile Management, Global Targets/Stop Loss, Daily Refresh, Selection Display Images and Advanced Gruss Connection Settings.

iv) Help - This is a drop down button with several other options including access to this help manual, registration details and database access.
We now reach the section of the screen that deals with the 8 available methods in TBM. Each system has the following options -
i) On Off Switch - Each System can ONLY be switched on if TBM is connected to Gruss. No bets can be placed by an individual system if the switch is OFF.
ii) Staking Plan Drop Down - To the right of each systems on/off switch is the Staking Plan selection drop down. At default each system is linked to Level Stakes. You can only change Staking Plan whilst the system is switched OFF.
iii) Status Label - Underneath the On/Off switch is the Status Label. The available Status are On, Off, Target Hit and Stop Loss.
iv) Series and Settings - The next button is labeled Series and Settings. This will open a new screen where you can fine tune your settings for the method.

vi) Next Stake - At the bottom of each section is the current Next Stake. Some Staking Plans require the odds to be known. When one of these staking plans is selected the label will show 'Awaits Odds' rather than the next stake.
