Figure 1. User interface for Source 

The following toolbars (available from the main Source screen) allow you direct access to various sections of Source:

  • Data Sources toolbar - allows you to add and manage sources of data (time series or by linking to another scenario). You can edit or view this data once it has been loaded in the Data Sources Explorer;
  • File toolbar - allows you to create a new project, opening an existing project, and saving a project (and all the scenarios within that project);
  • Function manager toolbar - allows you to add and manage all functions in Source;
  • Ordering toolbar - provides quick access to ordering-related functions. The button on this toolbar reveals a pop-up menu;
  • Project toolbar - allows you to toggle view of the Project ExplorerRecording ManagerLog Reporter and Chart Recording Manager;
  • Recording Manager toolbar - allows you to manage results in the Recording Manager;
  • Scenario toolbar - allows you to hide or display the Geographic EditorSchematic Editor and Tabular Editor, the Function ManagerData Sources, the Node Palette, the Layer Manager and Location Control panels; and

Figure 7. Notes, Overview

Image Modified 

If a note can be added to an item, when you right-click on the item the option Add Note will be available from the context menu, refer to Adding notes to nodes and links. The exception is adding notes to a function, which is done using the Add/Edit Note icon in the Function Editor toolbar, see Adding a note to a function

A summary of all the notes configured in a scenario can be viewed using View » Notes. For the example shown in Figure 8, the First inflow andDam nodes, the $AllocGS function and the Default Link #1 link have notes associated with them.


Once a scenario containing notes has been run, the notes are listed in the log reporter with a message type of Note. Also listed is the notification level, the name of the associated item (eg. Inflow 1) and the text message. Furthermore, the Schematic Editor shows all the nodes and links that have notes configured on them. Figure 9 shows two nodes with informational notes, one with a warning note, and one error note.
