Labels tab

The labels tab holds all available labels of the current active object. The user might edit any field of the table to modify the label name or the label value. New labels can also be created. Changes will be finally applied, if the object is stored next time. Additionally the user can customize the labels tab to only show certain labels.

Labels tab example

In the following figure, a typical labels tab is shown from a 2D data object:

Labels tab description

Labels are presented in a table view as shown in the figure above.

Each label has a name, which is displayed in the "€œName"€ column of the table on the left. Corresponding values are shown in the "Value" column of the table on the right. If multiple values are available for one label, they are displayed as comma separated list.

Modification of Labels

The value of a label can be modified just by clicking with the Left Mouse button into the desired field of the table. A new value can be entered or the current value can be edited.

Creating new labels

New labels can be created just by clicking with the Left Mouse button into the empty row at the bottom end of the table. The row will be initialized with the [Null] name and value. It can be modified by the user. After finishing modifications, a new empty row appears.

Customizing the labels tab

The user can customize the labels tab to only show selected labels. Some data objects might contain a large amount of attached labels and displaying all of them would make it difficult to find the necessary information. By clicking into the labels tab with the Right Mouse button the Select Labels Dialog will be shown. The dialog enables the user to select the labels that will be shown in the tab, to change the order of appearance and to add new labels. Please follow the above link to find out more about the Select Labels Dialog.
