IBIS-Q System Documentation - Query Module Selection Example


The measure selection file lists all the measures available for that dataset. Each measure points to a specific configuration within a module file. These configurations can all be located within the same module file or they can be split up into several different module files. Optional help buttons can be used to give further information about the measure listed. The measures can be grouped together in folders that will open when the user clicks on them. There can be as many layers as needed and as many sections as needed.

More information about this type of file is given in Creating a Query Module.
