Lasso an Area on the Map
The Lasso map control allows you to specify the area on the map for which you would like to view data in the items pane. When you select a map area with the Lasso map control, the item tabs display only those records that are within the selected area.
|Before using the Lasso tool, you will want to have at least one map theme enabled. Also, it may be helpful to zoom into the area of the map where the icons are located.|
To use the Lasso map control:
- Click the button.
- Click the map.
- While holding down the mouse button, drag the mouse over the area that you would like to include.
- A rectangle displays over the selected area.
- After you have selected the area for which you would like to view records, release the mouse button.
A green rectangle displays around the selected area. The items pane displays data for only those records that are within the selected area. If the selected area includes item records in a location, but the location is not in the selected area, the location data is still displayed in the items pane.
