Each item within the Master Database has properties. When you right click on the item and choose Properties from the popup menu, this dialog is displayed.
(Note that if you select the Properties menu item for the Master Database itself, the About Box will be displayed.)
The dialog has pages displaying:
- Object Page
General object properties
- Layer List Page
The Layer List Page is only displayed on the Properties Dialog when you right click on a Layer List and choose Properties from the popup menu. It shows which layers are contained in the Layer List, and which map component the layers work with.
- Description Page
A description of the item. It is editable for most items.
- Owners Page
- Simulation Page
This page is displayed whenever you ask for properties for a simulation. It shows the time the run was carried out by the user, and the status of the run.
- Hyperlinks Page
Details of any hyperlinks for the object
This page is only shown if the two following conditions are met:
• User permissions have been activated. See User Permissions for more details.
• You are viewing the Properties of a Model Group.
The page lists users who are Owners of the Model Group. Owners have administrative rights over the Model group.
A database owner can choose to apply User Permissions to a database, and appoint Owners for Model groups in the database. With permissions in force, Owners can carry out all operations on a Model group. Other users can only view data in the Model group.
The properties dialog of a "child" Model group will only display owners that have been specifically appointed to that group and will not display owners of parent groups. For example, if parent Model Group A with owner 'user1' has a sub Model Group B, 'user1' will only appear in the properties dialog for A although 'user1' will also have full edit powers over B.
For full details on user management, see User Permissions.
