Assigns colors to incoming features.


In the example below, there are unique feature counts and then IDs.

If aggregates are not important, only 3 colors are required:

Feature Adjacent to Areas
2,20 1, 3, 6
8,20 3
9,20 4

If, however, ID 2,20 is treated as an aggregate, then 4 colors are required and the pre-existing ID attributes must be supplied.

Feature Adjacent to Areas
20 10, 30, 40, 60
Feature Not Adjacent to Area
20 50

Usage Notes

  • A TopologyBuilder placed before the FeatureColorSetter can help you build a list of adjacent areas.
  • An AttributeFilter or another FeatureColorSetter can be used to manipulate the Color ID attribute.

Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.

Defining Values

There are several ways to define a value for use in a Transformer. The simplest is to simply type in a value or string, which can include functions of various types such as attribute references, math and string functions, and workspace parameters. There are a number of tools and shortcuts that can assist in constructing values, generally available from the drop-down context menu adjacent to the value field.

Dialog Options - Tables

Transformers with table-style parameters have additional tools for populating and manipulating values.
