HDF View :searching for values in a table dataset


#1

Hi everybody,
I'm a new user.
I used HDF View to read the results obtained from HECRAS simulations.
I obtained some tables with different types of values.
I'm trying to find a way (command, tools, other) to identify
a specific value inside a table, but I didn't understand if it was possible.
e.g.: I have a table with 500 values (variation of depth in time). I want identify the "x" depth value in the table avoiding to flow the list.
       Is it possible?

Could you help me , please?
Thanks a lot.
Regards,
Roberto

Hi Roberto,

With HDFView, I don't see a way to do exactly what you ask. HDFView just lets you browse (and edit) an HDF file.
Here are some things that you can do:

- You can select "Show Lineplot" from the "Table" pull-down menu to view a lineplot of a selected part of the dataset.
- Right click on the dataset and select "Open As" to open the dataset. A "Dataset Selection" window will pop up.
- From the Dataset Selection window you can:
   - select a subset of the table.
   - view the dataset as an image (and select subset).
     If you view the dataset as an image, you can select "Show Value" from the Image pull-down menu.
     Then when you cursor over the image you can see the x,y values at the position of the cursor over the image.

Would that help?

You could write an application to search for a value, or find analysis tools that can help. There is a list of (some) third-party
tools here:

Hi Roberto,

I just found out that there *is* a way with HDFView 3.0 to find a specific value in a table. Just open the table and type CTL-F.
A "Find" window will pop up, from which you can enter the value to search on.

Please note that this feature is only in HDFView-3.0.0 (Beta), which you can obtain from here:

  https://www.hdfgroup.org/downloads/hdfview/

The feature is not available in HDFView 2.14.
