1. Object list

 

The object list contains the individual objects, assorted according to the order of the action catalogue. The object list moves with the currently auctioned object, which means that the object at the center of the list is the object which is currently being auctioned. However, you are also able to scroll the object list by clicking the arrowsabove and beneath the object list. This way you can have a look at all the objects, regardless if they are being called a the moment.

A Navigation - You can scroll the object list by using these arrows. In case you want to get back to the currently auctioned object, please click the button "To the current position".

B Object field - Here you can see a small image, the catalogue number as well as the title of the object. Grey means that the object has already been called and that it may have been sold already.

C Limit - The amount which is expected as the minimum price for the object and which is announced when the object is called.

D Awarded price - The amount for which the object has been sold.

E An object which you have bought, standing out in green.
