WMS:Properties Window

From XMS Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

The Properties window provides both information and opportunities to edit properties of WMS entities.

Properties Window Overview

The properties of the currently selected entity are shown in the Properties window. If more than one entity is selected, some properties that show the relationship between the entities or the number of entities selected may be shown in the Properties window. Sometimes, selecting one entity will also select a related entity. For example, if selecting a feature polygon representing a basin boundary, WMS will also select the associated basin in the hydrologic tree.

When selecting a transient (time-varying) dataset in the Project Explorer, all the time steps associated with the transient dataset are shown in the Properties window. Select the time step of interest or click through the time steps to visualize contours of data values at each selected time step.

The following list describes the entities and their properties shown in the WMS Properties window:

Editing Coordinates and Other Values

Coordinate edit boxes, located on the right side of the WMS window, are used to edit the coordinates of a selected TIN vertex, feature point, or scatter point. Coordinates are changed by typing in new values and hitting the ENTER or TAB key. Other values, such as 2D grid dataset values, can also be edited in the properties window by changing the value and hitting the ENTER or TAB key to accept the entered value.

Metadata Window

Metadata, or data about data, is accessible by choosing the Metadata tab at the bottom of the Properties window. This window will display information on the currently selected object in the WMS Project Explorer. This data may include when the file was created or modified, contact information, horizontal and vertical coordinate system information, or other object-specific data.
