    4 #!N  #!Rcatstr Structuring #!N #!EC #!N #!N These tools manipulate Data 
    5 Explorer data structures. Their functions include the creation of hierarchies, selection 
    6 of elements in a hierarchy, allowing operations on components other than 
    7 "data," manipulation of Field or Group components, and determining which branches 
    8 of a visual program are to be executed. #!N #!I0 #!N

   10 members to an existing Group. #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Lattrib,dxall769 h Attribute  #!EL  #!EF

   15  #!Lcollect,dxall788 h Collect  #!EL  #!EF #!I50 #!N Collects Objects into a Group. For example, 
   16 you can use Collect to collect a streamline, an isosurface, and 
   17 a light. You can then pass the collection to the Image 
   18 tool. #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Lmultigr,dxall789 h CollectMultiGrid  #!EL  #!EF #!I50 #!N Collects Objects 
   19 into a Multigrid (a Group that will be treated as a 
   20 single data Object). #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Lcollecn,dxall790 h CollectNamed  #!EL  #!EF #!I50 #!N 
   21 Collects Objects into a Group (like Collect) but allows each Object 
   22 in the Group to be given a name. #!N #!I0 #!N 
   23  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Lcollecs,dxall791 h CollectSeries  #!EL  #!EF #!I50 #!N Collects Objects into a Series. You 
   24 give each element of the series a series position (e.g., a 
   25 time tag). #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Lcopycon,dxall800 h CopyContainer  #!EL  #!EF #!I50 #!N Copies

   27 #!N Extracts a component from a Field (e.g., the "colors" component). 
   28 #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Linquire,dxall877 h Inquire  #!EL  #!EF #!I50 #!N Returns information about 
   29 the input Object (e.g., data type, number of elements, etc.). #!N 
   30 #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Llist,dxall885 h List  #!EL  #!EF #!I50 #!N Concatenates several items into 
   31 a single list. #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Lmark,dxall893 h Mark  #!EL  #!EF #!I50 #!N 
   32 Marks a specified component in a Field as the data component. 
   33 Many modules operate only on the "data" component. Thus the Mark 
   34 module allows modules to operate on components other than data (e.g., 
   35 "positions" or "colors"). If a "data" component already exists, it is 
   36 preserved in a "saved data" component. You can restore it by 
   37 using the Unmark module. #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Loptions,dxall898 h Options  #!EL  #!EF #!I50 
   38 #!N Associates attributes with an Object. For example, plotting options such 
   39 as marker type can be specified by adding attributes to the 
   40 line. #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Lremove,dxall921 h Remove  #!EL  #!EF #!I50 #!N Removes a 
   41 specified component from a Field. #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Lrename,dxall922 h Rename  #!EL  #!EF 
   42 #!I50 #!N Renames a component in a Field. For example, you 
   43 could rename the "colors" component to "front colors" to get only 
   44 front-facing colors. You should be aware that component names have special 
   45 meanings to modules using them. See  #!Ldatmod,dxall197 h Understanding the Data Model  #!EL  in IBM Visualization Data 
   46 Explorer User's Guide. #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Lreplace,dxall925 h Replace  #!EL  #!EF #!I50 #!N 
   47 Replaces a component in one Field with a component from another, 
   48 or with an input Array. #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Lselect,dxall936 h Select  #!EL  #!EF 
   49 #!I50 #!N Selects members out of a Group or elements from 
   50 a list. two isosurfaces, a streamline, and a mapped plane. You 
   51 could then use the  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   selector #!EF input to the module 
   52 to choose which of these is the output of the module. 
   53 #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!Lunmark,dxall972 h Unmark  #!EL  #!EF #!I50 #!N Undoes the action 
   54 of the Mark module. It moves the "data" component back to 
   55 the component you specify, and the "saved data" component is restored 
   56 to the "data" component. #!I0 #!N #!N #!N #!N #!N  #!F-adobe-times-medium-i-normal--18*
