Attribute Browser Tools for InfoSWMM and InfoSWMM SA
The Attribute Browser has the following buttons/tools. The tools change depending on the type of Element.
Each one of these buttons is briefly described below:
|Select Element / Select Elements / Select Domain||
|Find by ID||This button enables the user to search a network element by its ID or Description and zooms in to the element. This feature is same as the Locate Element functionality available from the Utility Menu.|
|Zoom to an Active Node||Zooms the drawing area map in to the node or the link currently active.|
|Open Default||Using this feature, the user may review the default attribute data used when new data elements (e.g., Rain Gage, Junction, etc) are created. Click on the button, and select the data element type for which you need to review the default settings on the resulting dialog editor, then click OK. The attribute browser displays default settings for the data element , and allows you to modify the settings.|
|Save as Default||This tool enables the modeler to save attributes of a data element (e.g. Subcatchments) as a default so that the same attribute data is used when new data element, in this case Subcatchment, is created.|
|Save Current Record||By clicking on this button, the user saves the latest changes made on the attribute browser.|
|Reset||Reverts any changes made on the attribute browser to its previous state at the time of the last save operation. Once a save operation is performed, any changes made to the current record become permanent.|
|Delete||Deletes the active data element.|
|Recall||Recalls the last deleted data element.|
|Report||Opens the report manager and displays output report for the selected element for a maximum report duration of one day. Click on an element for which you wish to see output report, and click on this tool.|
|Graph||Opens the report manager and displays output graph for the selected element for a maximum report duration of one day. Click on an element for which you wish to create an output graph, and click on this tool.|
|Tools||Using this command, the user can access certain dialog editors provided by InfoSWMM to provide attribute data related to the currently active data element (e.g., Junction, Conduit, Subcatchment, etc) that may or may not be provided through other tool buttons in the attribute browser. Click on the Down Arrow icon to launch the Tools menu.
