MapTip

Comments (0)

Configure the MapTip element as a sub element of Layer Queries in order to provide MapTip functionality for this layer. It can be used to simply identify objects and immediately get precise information on the geometry and on the attribute data of the identified object.

MapTip is able

to provide direct access to Images related to the object

to provide direct access to a Neighbor Search

to provide direct access to External Applications related to the object

to add the identified object to the current selection set in the Search result.

Order of MapTip layers:

1) point features

2) line features

3) polygon features

If layers (on which MapTips are configured) have the same geometry type, the layer that is above the others in the project configuration in the node Layer queries is taken when Visible Layers is activated.

If point or line layers (on which MapTips are configured) have the same geometry, you can use the property Buffer for points/lines.

Example: Line theme 1 gets a buffer distance of 4 pixels, line theme 2 a distance of 7 pixels. If you click over the geometry within 4 pixels , the MapTip of line theme 1 is displayed. If you are in a buffer distance between 5 and 7 pixels, the MapTip of line theme 2 is displayed.

 

Order when selecting objects of a layer:

The order of polygons of one layer is as follows: The polygon with the smallest area is selected.

For all other geometry types the following applies: the object whose label point of the geometry has the lowest distance to the click point is selected.

Property

Description

Search result for MapTip

Search result to be used for displaying MapTip identify results.

Highlight color

Highlight color to be used for MapTip graphics.

Transparency level [%]

Specifies the transparency of the MapTip graphics.

Minimum scale

Minimum scale.

If the scale limit is exceeded then no MapTip functionality is available for this layer any more.

If e.g. scale limit is set to 10000, then MapTip is available up to 10000, from 10001 on it is not available any more.

In case no MapTip is available the user will see a notification in the WebOffice core client status bar.

Maximum scale

Maximum scale.

If the scale limit is exceeded then no MapTip functionality is available for his layer any more.

If e.g. scale limit is set to 1000, then MapTip is available down to 1000, from 999 on it is not available any more.

icon_comment

In case no MapTip is available the user will see a notification in the WebOffice core client status bar.

Show field name in MapTip?

Show field name (Yes) or not (No) in MapTip window?

Show object name in title?

Indicates whether the object name shall be displayed in the MapTip title. The object name is composed of the result fields with the attribute Sort order/object, whereas the result fields have to belong to a result view restricted for MapTip.

Time between 2 requests [ms]

Time between 2 requests [ms].

Display time [ms]

Display time [ms].

If the user does not pin/fix the MapTip window, then the window gets removed again when display time is over.

Buffer for points / lines [pixel]

Increasing the buffer distance will make finding of objects easier for the user. The selection graphics will change if you change the buffer distance as well.

Useful to distinguish features if many layers have features with identical geometry. Order in case of feature overlay:

1) point features sorted by buffer ascending

2) line features sorted by buffer ascending

3) polygon features sorted by buffer ascending

icon_comment

Working with many different buffer tolerances will worsen the MapTip performance! Use as few and as small as possible buffer values!

Show related layers in MapTip?

Specifies if related layers will be shown in MapTip

As mentioned before, MapTip can also be used to show linked pictures of an object. It is also possible to link more pictures to one object. In that case the MapTip result in the WebOffice 10.9 SP2 clients offers the possibility to switch between the single pictures (like a photo gallery). The order of the pictures is determined by the order in the configuration of the result field list (from top down).

See chapter Integration of External Application for details about the configuration of e.g. linked images or URLs in WebOffice author standalone.

If the MapTip has an offset with the selected object the transformation in the map document must be adjusted.
