SETTING / VALUES

EXPLANATION

 

 

Format

 

language

leave empty for automatic language detection or set language name:

QlikView:
german, english, ...

Qlik Sense:
de, en, ...

currencysymbol

character

basically used currency symbol (default is the Euro sign "€")

Defines the basically used currency symbol in NPGeoMap.
Especially for the presentation of numbers in the legend there's a specific setting in the fx‑editor COLOR & SIZE CLASSES which overwrites the setting in this feature.

numbers

format

basically used number format (default ist 0,0.00)

Configures the general format and notation of calculated numbers in NPGeoMap such as numbers in the legend, in selection areas or distance information.
The following tools and variables are available:

 comma            ,  =  thousand separator
 period           .  =  decimal separator

 dollar sign      $  =  currency symbol
 percentage sing  %  =  converts number values in percent
                        and display a percentage sign
 abbreviation     a  =  number abbreviations like "Mio", "Tsd" etc.

In Addition space characters and other symbols can be used directly.

Example (Screenshot on the right):

 "numbers": "$ 0,0",

Further examples:

INPUT     "numbers":    OUTPUT  _

 1500.25   "0,0.00"      1.500,25

 1500.25   "0"           1500

 1500.25   "0,0.000"     1.500,250

 1500.25   "$ 0,0.00"    € 1.500,25

 0.9       "0,0.00 %"    90,00 %

 0.9       "0,0%"        90%

The used characters for the thousand and the decimal speparator are assumed from the settings in the Qlik Script.
Which currency symbol should be basically used in NPGeoMap is configurable in the setting above. Especially for the numbers in the legend, this can be overwritten in a specific setting currencysymbol in the fx‑editor COLOR & SIZE CLASSES.

style

CSS class style middle name for menus and buttons - adapt file

QlikView:
"...QlikView\Extensions\Objects\NPGeoMap_v3\NPGeoMap_v3_Basic\lib\npgeomap\npgeomap.css"

Qlik Sense:
"...Sense\Extensions\NPGeoMapSense_v3\lib\npgeomap\npgeomap.css"

QlikView only
borderwidth

QlikView only:
border width of the NPGeoMap object

opacity

set opacity of background layer - opacity of background maps (tile maps) is set inside TILE PROVIDER SETTINGS

backgroundcolor

color

Background color in the object (default is white)

background color for baselayer (no background map/tileserver)- default value = "white"

tooltip

MouseOvers or Tooltips are small fields with short information which appear when the cursor hovers over a dynamic object in the map.

showdelay

number

delay of MouseOvers in milliseconds (default is 400)

Defines a delay of displaying MouseOvers (Tooltips).
That means MouseOvers won't be displayed in the moment when the cursor hovers over a dynamic object, but it appears until the cursor rests a here defined time on the object. It prevents annoying and unintentional flare-up of MouseOvers when working in the map.
Example:
"showdelay": 0,     000_arrow no delay - the MouseOver will appear immediately
"showdelay": 400,   000_arrow  MouseOver will appear when cursor stays for 400 milliseconds (0.4 sec) on the object

hidedelay

number

duration of MouseOvers in milliseconds (default is 5000)

Defines the duration the MouseOver (Tooltip) is displayed.
As long as the cursor doesn't move the MouseOver will be displayed for the here set time. MouseOvers always disappear when the cursor moves.
Example:
"hidedelay": 1000   000_arrow MouseOver will be displayed for 1000 milliseconds (1 sec)
"hidedelay": 5000   000_arrow  MouseOver will be displayed for 5000 milliseconds (5 sec)

sketchinfobox

1

infobox displayed when drawing (default)

0

infobox not displayed

Enables or disables a infobox while drawing the marking for a selection.
When a mouse is used the box appears in the lower right corner, on touchscreen devices in the upper corner for a better visibility when working with fingers.
It shows the measures of the drawing and appears while dragging:

rectangle: width, height, area
circle: radius
lasso and freehand: area

000_pinTip: There's a CSS file "info.css" located in the NPGeoMap Extension directory (subfolder "css"), which can be customized to define the default presentation of PopUps, MouseOver and SketchBoxes.
(If you configure this file make sure to save a backup, when installing an NPGeoMap update - the actual file will probably be replaced.)

Menu

In this section are various settings for optimizing the user interface, like configuring the menu bar, the touchscreen menu, the selection menue or other operating elements. Furthermore there's a setting for the language in NPGeoMap and a special button which can automatically allocate Markers to their respective geographically related Polygon.

All menu items can be combined arbitrarily. Only "active" (the menu bar) and "touchscreenmenu" have a either-or relation, whereby the second one has priority.

layerswitch

0

Layerswitcher disabled

Displays the Layerswitcher.
This button allows a very easy "turn on/off" of all configured layers in the object like the Markers, Maps, Lines, Background, ... Just tick or untick them as you need.
Unticking layers don't mean they're disabled - they are simply not visible. If a layer is actually not needed, disable it in the properties menu for better performance.

The Selection Menu and the Selection are enabled by default, but the menu only appears when selectable (dynamic) items and layers are configured in the object.
If you disable this feature, dynamic objects can't be selected anymore, not even with keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl for single selection, Ctrl+Shift for multi selection).

toggleselection

1

toggle selection flip switch enabled

0

toggle selection flip switch disabled (default)

Displays a flip switch beneath the selection menu, to switch between default selection mode and toggle selection mode.

oToggle selection - same selection dynamics as in Qlik:
Objects are added to or removed from the selection like turning them on or off. If objects are marked, which haven't been selected yet, they will be added to the current selection. If objects are marked, which are already part of the current selection, they will be removed from it.
As always, selecting the last remaining object again clears the selection (this applies for both selection modes).

oDefault selection - same selection dynamics as in QlikView:
Marked objects are selected, all others not.

Using this flip switch overwrites the configurations in the feature togglemode further below.
This feature allows the end user to change the selection mode directly in the object. The related feature togglemode is a developer tool to basically set a selection mode.
To see which of the two modes is active in the object, even if the flip switch isn't displayed, the green OK button changes and shows a small plus sign in toggle mode (see screenshot).

After that export them and load it as Map file.

showScaleLine

1/0 or true/false - shows/hides a dynamic ruler at bottom of the map to give you information on scaling (changes with zoom level)

layermanager

Button in the bottom right corner - opens a window to manage Data Layers.

0 = off
1 = on (default)
