Introduction

The Geoide Viewer has a large number of buttons and associated functions. Buttons can be added to or removed from the lay-out of the Geoide Viewer. For more information go to Add/adjust Toolbars and Buttons.

Button types

Distinction is made in three types of buttons:

  • Viewer Mode buttons: these buttons put the Geoide Viewer in a certain mode (e.g. zoom mode, edit mode, ..). By default, the Geoide Viewer starts in the 'zoom' mode.
  • Action Buttons: independent of the mode in which the Viewer is, you can use the action buttons to initiate an action, such as navigating to a certain point (x,y) in the map.
  • On/Off buttons: this type of button opens a pop-up window. The pop-up windows itself may contain also action buttons.

The following list shows all available buttons, including an explanation and the name of the button as used for the configuration of the Geoide Viewer.
