Using the Windows Client there are a variety of ways in which you can start a Display, these are detailed below:

Starting on all configured nodes

The following methods will start a Display collecting data from the node that have been configured in the "Nodes" tab of the Data View Definition window.

  • Double-click the Display document in the Document Navigator.

  • Highlight the required Display document in the Document Navigator then press Enter.

  • Drag and drop the Display document from the Document Navigator onto the workspace.

  • Right-click the required Display document in the Document Navigator and select Start from the displayed menu.

Starting on a selected node

By dragging a Display document from the Document Navigator and dropping it onto a selected node in the Node Navigator the Display will run according to the following rules which are based upon the node setting in the "Nodes" tab of the Data View Definition dialog box:

#DefaultNode will be replaced with the node on which the document was dropped.

#AllNodes and specific nodes (e.g. \NODE-B) will NOT be replaced, the Display will run as specified.

#CurrentNode for an online Display this is the node on which the document is dropped. For a Display that is a Replay or Report it will be the node on which the Database (from which the data is replayed) resides.
