Details Dialog

Used to display information related to what is selected in any of the tabs of the Explorer dialog. For example, if an item is selected in the Explorer dialog Items tab, then the properties or details for that item display in the Details dialog. When a model is selected in the File tab, the Details dialog displays all of the model's property values. The information displayed is editable and can be saved.
