Components of the Navigation Toolbar element:¶
You can integrate various different components in the configuration dialog box. These components include:
Zoom to max extent
Zoom to start
In the application these components look like this:
If you set a tick at Draggable, then a small cross will appear next to the navigation toolbar that allows the user to move the element around.
Rotation enables changes of the map orientation. A click on the north arrow allows for a restoration of the original rotation.
Users can zoom to their smallest scale by Zoom to max extent. This Max Extent can be set individually in the map element. The element must be integrated into the Map area.
It is possible to restore the initial center, scale, SRS and rotation with Zoom to start.
Finally, Zoom in/out allows to zoom in (
+ -button) and out (
– -button) of the map. The element automatically sets to the next higher or lower scale. Zoom steps can be defined in the map element as well. There, users also have the option to deactivate fixed zoom steps.
The component Zoom slider already includes Zoom in/out. Additionally, the user can select different scales from a bar.
This template can be used to insert the element into a YAML application.
