Problem

Where can I find the definition (description) of a property in the Property Grid?

Solution

There are a few places to find the definition of a property if you need more information about it. 

The following solution uses WaterGEMS as an example, but the solution applies to all the hydraulics and hydrology programs, except FlowMaster and CulvertMaster. 

The bottom of the properties window

If you click on any property cell such as diameter (see red box below), which highlights the property, the definition will show on the bottom of the dialog window (see blue box below).

In the help documentation

*This example below uses WaterGEMS, but applies to all hydraulics and hydrology products

If you go to Help > WaterGEMS Help, you can use the Search tab to find more information on any property or feature. 

On the Bentley forums or in a wiki article

While you may not find a better explanation of all properties or features here we're constantly updating the forums and wiki articles, so there is a lot of information that you may find useful. This wiki article explains how you can search for information on the forums and this article explains how to use the forums.
