Recalculates the Formula when Loading in the Recipe
As the recipe
is loaded Matrix will search it's materials databases for each material
in the recipe and will use the data for that material to progressively
calculate the unity formula for the recipe. Matrix will also calculate
the Al:Si ratio, the Coefficient of Expansion and the Surface Tension
for the recipe. To do this Matrix needs to locate each material
in its databases.
If for some
reason a material cannot be found (maybe it was deleted or renamed
or one of the material databases was lost) then a warning dialog
to a Missing Material
If Matrix cannot
find one of the recipe's materials in any database it will not be
able to calculate the Unity formula for the recipe and will display
the warning dialog shown in Fig.4
