VCS Hints: Format Editor Panel   


Access: via (Th) Format Table Panel -> Attribute Set Name

The Format Editor Panel allows editing of format attributes of a dimension, including its name, units, and format string. Note however, the `default' format attributes cannot be edited.

How to Use the Format Editor Panel

Indexing the Format:
Move the pointer over the right arrow and click the left mouse button. The `Index' input text window will increment by 1 and the Format Editor Panel will change accordingly. The `Index' input text window can also be edited. Select the red `Apply' button to register changes.

Adding or Removing a Format Attribute:
To add a format attribute, move the pointer over the green `Add' button and click the left mouse button. To remove a format attribute, move the pointer over the red `Remove' button and click the left mouse button. In both cases, the Format Editor Panel will change accordingly. Select the red `Apply' button to register changes.

Editing the Dimension Name:
Move the pointer in the `Name of Dimension ...' input text window and click the left mouse button. Enter the name of the single-valued dimension of the array data, `Mean', `Max', `Min', or `*'. Select the red `Apply' button to register changes.

Editing the Dimension Units:
Move the pointer in the `Units of the Dimension ...' input text window and click the left mouse button. Enter the unit name, variable name, or `*'. Select the red `Apply' button to register changes.
