Legend Load - Load/convert several legends/colormap files
Legend Load can either load a single legend for all active themes or search for a legend with the same name (as the data source) for every single theme (so called default legend).
- The themes for which a legend shall be loaded must be active.
- For image themes the search is made for a ARC/INFO colormap file (with the extension CLR - those can be created with Legend Save). For all other themes the search is made for an ArcView legend (with the extension AVL).
- Load Default Legend/Colormap: Searches for a legend file with the same name as the data source of the theme in the following order:
- Legend or colormap file with the same name in the directory of the data source (so called default legend) - e.g. C:\GIS\theme1.avl for shapefile C:\GIS\theme1.shp or C:\GIS\grid1.avl for grid C:\GIS\grid1.
- Legend or colormap file with the same name in the current work directory.
- Legend or colormap file with the same name in the subdirectory of the data source (ARC/INFO Coverage or Grid) - e.g. C:\GIS\grid1\grid1.avl for Grid C:\GIS\grid1.
- Legend or colormap file with the same name in directories defined by environment variables ($HOME, $TEMP, $AVHOME, $AVEXT, $AVBIN, $USEREXT. )
- Any legend or colormap file in the subdirectory of the data source (ARC/INFO Coverage or Grid) - e.g. C:\GIS\grid1\legend.avl for Grid C:\GIS\grid1.
- Load Specific Legend/Colormap: Opens a window for choosing a specific legend/colormap file.
- Click on the button to run the command. When finished, the status bar shows
- for how many themes a legend was found and loaded without errors,
- for how many themes no legend was found,
- how many legend files could not be read (i.e. had an error) and
- how many legends could not be converted.
- Legend Load makes the same conversions as Legend Copy and there are the same rules for the selection of a classification field, i.e. if there can't be found a suiting field for a theme a window appears with the title (Legend Copy - Utilities) Select classification field.
