Curve Context Menu

Figure 3. Curve Context Menu
Right-click on a curve and select Dependencies to display the View Dependencies dialog. Use this dialog to review the source for the x and y vectors of the current curve, as well as the source for any other vector involved in their definition. You can modify the base file used for the curve, as well as the Type, Request, or Component.
Highlight Source
If a HyperView window is open and on the same page as the HyperGraph window, and you select this option, the node or element is selected on the HyperView animation file.
The following sub-menu options are available:
Displays the label in HyperView for the corresponding entity in HyperGraph
Turns off the display of all highlighted entity labels in HyperView.
Turns off everything in HyperView and displays only the selected entity in HyperGraph.
Adds to display in HyperView for the corresponding entity in HyperGraph.
Hides the source entity.
Supported files for LS-DYNA in both ASCII and binary format output include the following:
  • Matsum
  • Nodout
  • Deforc
  • Elout
  • Rbdout
  • Sbtout
  • Swforc
The context sensitive menu is displayed for any curve that is in HyperGraph. However, the menu options for this feature only work for the above file types. For the unsupported files, an error message is displayed, indicating no matching entities found..
Displays the Entity Editor for curves. Use this dialog to edit the curve's properties.
Edit Vectors
Displays the Entity Editor for the selected vector. Use this dialog to edit the vector's properties.
