Introduction

Clicking on the Information button on the Object Inspector will take you to the Information Panel. The purpose of this panel is to provide you with information about the output of the currently selected source, reader or filter. The information on this panel is presented in several sections. We start by describing the sections that are applicable to all dataset types then we describe data specific sections.

File Properties

If the current pipeline object is a reader, the top section will display the name of the file and its full path.

Data Statistics

The Statistics section displays high-level information about the dataset including the type, number of points and cells and the total memory used. Note that the memory is for the dataset only and does not include memory used by the representation (for example, the polygonal mesh that may represent the surface). All of this information is for the current time step.

Array Information

This section shows the association (point, cell or global), name, type and range of each array in the dataset. In the example, the top 3 attributes are point arrays, the middle 3 cell arrays and the bottom three global (field) arrays. Note that for vectors, the range of each component is shown separately. In case, the range information does not fit the frame, the tooltip will display all of the values.
