Sets the region-related KML attributes for a group of features destined for the OGCKML Writer.


The default settings will calculate a bounding box, and use that as the bounding box for the feature's region.

The inactive view shows that the feature is not initially displayed when you are zoomed out. The region is "inactive" and therefore the feature is not shown.

As you zoom in closer, the view meets the display criteria and the region activates; that is, the feature displays.

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.
