Modify Pen Table Dialog, Element Selection Criteria Tab
Contains controls used to specify criteria, unique to each section, against which elements are evaluated. If a match occurs, then the section's set of Element Output Actions is performed, and all subsequent sections are bypassed. If no match occurs, the element is passed to the next section for evaluation.
Criteria are typically selected from choices in a list box. Multiple values of a criterion may be selected from a list box. Multiple contiguous values are selected using the mouse with the <Shift> button depressed; multiple non-contiguous values are selected using the mouse with the <Ctrl> key depressed.
|Disable Section||If on, the section is disabled, and will not be considered during processing.|
|Use Section Name as Criteria||(Visible only when the active file is a DWG file and an STB file has been imported.) When you turn on this check box, if the pen table section name matches the plot style name on the element, then that criteria is used for the pen table section to match. That is, the pen table section match would be on plot style, rather than element color or type.|
|Type||This list box contains a list of element types. A type, against which an element is evaluated, is selected by clicking it. The Edit menu has the following relevant menu items: Clear Types and Set All Types.|
|Files...||Opens the Identify Files dialog, which is used to identify references for a pen table section based on their slot numbers or logical names.|
|Weight…||Opens the Select Weights dialog, which is used to enter line weight criteria in the Weight text field.|

|Fill Color…||Opens the Select Colors dialog, which is used to insert color values in the Fill Color text field.|
|Level…||Opens the Select Levels dialog, which is used to insert level values in the Level text field.|
|Level regular expression|| Allows you to use regular expressions to select levels. For example, if you type a.*, the pen table section will match every level beginning with a. The comparisons are not case sensitive.
If a pen table contains a list of levels and a regular expression, all must match the element level name for the pen table section's output actions to be applied.
|Style…||Opens the Select Line Style dialog, which is used to select line style criteria, against which an element will be evaluated.|
|Class||This list box contains a list of classes. A class, against which an element is evaluated, is selected by clicking it. The Edit menu has the following relevant items: Clear Classes and Set All Classes.|
|Model Format||Lets you select one of the following model formats: Any, DGN, or DWG/DXF. Lets you define pen table sections that operate only on elements inside DGN and/or DWG/DXF models. The default value is "Any," meaning that the model format is not used when filtering the element.|
|MSLink||Used to key in the value of the database mslink criterion in the text field.|
|Entity||Used to key in the value of the database entity number criterion in the text field.|
