How can I add columns to Organizer?
Displaying Custom ColumnsThe IP.CFG configuration variable IP_ENVR_COLUMNS enables you to display custom, per-plot attributes as additional columns in Organizer. In IPLOT, helpful information about a plot (Discipline, Sheet Number) can be stored in per-plot environment variables. These environment variables may be viewed and edited in Organizer from the Variables tab.Because the environment variable name may be different from the column heading name, this feature enables you to specify both the actual to be used as the column heading name. This is helpful since environment variables are not allowed to have spaces.
Format:IP_ENVR_COLUMNS = <Display Name>, <Variable Name>; ...
For example, suppose you have environment variables named Discipline and SHEET_NUM. You want these to show up in Organizer as Discipline and Sheet Number. To do this you would define IP_ENVR_COLUMNS as shownbelow.IP_ENVR_COLUMNS = Discipline,Discipline;Sheet Number,SHEET_NUMThe entire entry must be quoted and you must exit and restart Organizer for the change to take effect.The new columns display as the rightmost columns in Organizer, so you will need to scroll to the right to see them. You can use Organizer's View > Columns option to re-position them.The information below is from the ip.cfg file:# IP_ENVR_COLUMNS allows you to display custom, per-plot attributes# as additional columns in Organizer.
