Viewing Results
To view results, you perform three activities—define result windows, display result windows, and control the general appearance of the result windows you define. You can also manipulate multiple result windows within the Results user interface The Results user interface features easy, direct methods of defining result windows as well as a variety of view controls. Here is an overview of the method you use to view results:
Define Result Windows—You can use one of the following methods to define result windows:
Define a new window:
Click on the Analyses and Design Studies dialog box or click Home > Results. The results user interface toolbar appears.
Click Home > New and select the results to display in native mode. After you select a results file, the Result Window Definition dialog box opens.
Click Home > New to open the Result Window Definition dialog box in FEM mode. Use this dialog box to select the required design studies, display types, quantities, and locations.
Create a window by selecting a template—Click Home > New from Template. The Design Study for Result Window “Window1” dialog box opens. When you select a results file the Insert Result Windows from Template opens so you can select a result windows template.
Create the default window from the default template—Click Home > New Default. The Design Study for Result Window “Window1” dialog box opens so you can select an analysis or design study for which you want to display results. The results of the selected analysis or design study are displayed using the default result window template for that study type.
You may find that you can define result windows more quickly by copying them.
Display and hide result windows—You can display result windows through the View > Show command. When you select this command, the Display Result Window dialog box opens, enabling you to select and deselect various result windows to display.
You hide windows by clicking View > Hide. You can hide a single window or multiple windows. You will find this particularly handy as you prepare to generate reports.
Control result window appearance—You control how result windows appear on-screen through commands on the Format tab.
Arrange result windows—You can swap or reorder the result windows, when you display multiple result windows.
When you set up your result windows as you want, you can begin to evaluate and compare results. Once you have studied your result windows, you may also want to, copy, or delete some of them.
