Customizing Labels Crossing Pipes in Profiles

Text written in ( 2 ) below will appear as a label of the crossing pipes, however, some special codes will be translated to pipe properties, these codes are listed in the drop down list( 4 ). Selecting any one will add it to the end of the current label in ( 2 ).
( 1 ) The text here is the name of this customized style and  will appear in the previous dialog box ( 5 above ) instead of the unfriendly text of the label ( 2 ) so try to make it short and informative.
( 4 ) This button will reset the label to the default value to show Section Size, Network Name and Invert Level.
Code details:
-  { Must start with left curly bracket  
-  Followed by 2 Letters then one digit to be used to define the  decimal digits if it is a number or to change the text case ( 0=lowercase, 1=UPPER, 2=No Change. 
-  } Must be closed with right curly bracket.


Node Labels And Pipe Labels

( 1 ) Predefined data type can be selected from this pull down menu

Example How To Use Customized Labels

In this example the IL is followed by space then the Flow Direction Code {FD0} then a space then the All Invert Levels Code {IM2}

The Codes will be translated to show the real data when style applied to nodes or pipes.

The Code break down is as follows:

{ Must start with left curly bracket

Followed by 2 Code letters  IM  (Invert level Multi)

Then one digit 0 to be used to define the decimal digits if it is a number or to change the text case (0=lowercase, 1=UPPER, 2=No Change}

} Must be closed with right curly bracket

The drop down list on the right side will help users to insert the required codes.
The {IM?} Code the only one to fill as many Node Attributes as the number of the connected pipes.
{FD?} Code will be ignored if none of the level codes used, ({IM?} {LL?} or {IL?}
