Data Tips

Data Tips allow you to quickly access information about model input parameters, and analysis results, by simply hovering the mouse over the desired model entities or locations. This includes the following information:

  • material properties
  • support properties
  • x,y coordinates of all model entities (e.g. boundary vertices, grid coordinates, slope limits etc)
  • interpolated safety factor contour values within Grid Search grids
  • slip surface query information (e.g. safety factor and coordinates)
  • and other information

In general, it is suggested that the user experiment with placing the cursor over various model and view elements, while in Data Tips mode, to discover what information is available for the various model and view elements.

By default, the Data Tips display mode is OFF (i.e. data tips are not displayed). To enable Data Tips, select the desired option from the status bar at the bottom of the application window or the Data Tips sub-menu in the View menu. The following options are available.

Data Tips Max

The Data Tips Max option will provide the maximum amount of information about the desired entities. For example, when the mouse is hovered over any material region, a complete list of material properties for that material will appear. This also applies to support properties (e.g. hover the mouse over an anchor to obtain support properties).

Data Tips Min

The Data Tips Min option will provide a minimal amount of information, for example, material names, boundary names, etc.

Data Tips Off

Since you will not always want Data Tips to be in effect, you may turn off the Data Tips by selecting Data Tips Off.

Data Tips Query

The Data Tips Query option is only applicable after a groundwater analysis. If the Data Tips Query option is selected, you can hover the mouse over the groundwater analysis contours on the model (i.e. pressure head, total head etc), and obtain exact interpolated values of the contoured data, at the current cursor location.
