Query Objects

Use the “Query Objects” tool to find objects by defining an exact condition: unlike the find object tool, here it is possible to define in which attribute there has to be searched and in which dataset. With the find object tool the entered value will be searched in every attribute and in every dataset/the visible dataset/selected dataset (depending of the chosen settings).

Go to selection to read on about the other ways to select objects.

Open the window by opening the Map 2D Selection menu and choose “Query Objects …”.

Query Result

In the “Query Result” tab, all query results are listed in an embedded Object Inspector. The same tools are available, but remember that these objects are not selected, they are only the result of the “Query”-process. It is possible to browse through the result list and select objects. See Object list tools and spatial content.

The Object Selection Tools are explained here.
