Grid Properties pop-over

This pop-over is used to set up an optional grid pattern on map adornments.

  • Rows. The desired number of grid rows. Stored in $GridRows
  • Columns. The desired number of grid columns. Stored in $GridColumns.
  • colour controls. Sets the colour used to draw the grid and its optional labelsStored $GridColor.
  • Opacity. Controls the opacity used to drawn the grid. Stored $GridOpacity.
  • font control. Sets the font used to draw grid labels. Stored $GridFont.
  • Labels. A list-type list of row and column labels. The Stored $GridLabels.
  • Label size. Sets the (point) size at which labels are drawn. Stored $GridLabelSize.

Labels are drawn, centred, at the bottom of each grid cell. Labels are read by row, then column. Thus in a 2-row 3-column grid, the first 3 labels in the list are the labels for all 3 columns of row #1, and so on. By entering an empty list item using 2 consecutive semi-colons in the list, i.e. ';;', specific cells may be left un-labelled.

If only rows or columns are set and the other value is left at zero a single row or column is drawn, i.e. a value of 1 is assumed and drawn though not set in the relevant attribute (which remains at '0').
