GMS:Notes

From XMS Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Notes can be added to most objects or to the project itself to aid in model development. For example, a model developer might add a note to a dataset used to interpolate elevations to describe the real world source of the data. Typical notes might be to describe what an object is, where it came from, or why the developer did something a particular way.

Automatic Notes

GMS will create some notes automatically if the Create GMS notes automatically option is turned on in the General tab of the Preferences dialog. Initially, automatic notes are created only on UGrids when they are created, on datasets when they are created through interpolation or the Data Calculator, or on coverages when they are created from other objects. This list may be expanded in future releases.

Object Notes

Notes for objects are accessed via a tab on the Properties dialog.

Notes are given a time stamp when they are created and the notes can be sorted by time in ascending or descending order. Add notes by clicking the Add row Add Note Icon.svg button. Remove notes by selecting the note and clicking the Delete GMS Delete Icon.svg button.

The dialog has options for showing all notes, only GMS created notes, or only user created notes.

All Notes

All notes for all objects can be viewed via the Edit | Notes command. In this dialog, notes cannot be created, but they can be deleted. Remove notes by selecting the note and clicking the Delete GMS Delete Icon.svg button.
