The ArcFM Display Field is the value displayed with a
feature listed on the Selection tab. The default ArcFM Display Field
is the ObjectID, but it can be set to the text field most referenced
by your utility, for example, FacilityID. The default (ObjectID) is
displayed in parenthesis until changed.
An administrator may
also create and configure a custom display name object that displays
multiple attributes in the feature name. Custom display name objects
do not affect how the Display Field locator works. It will still search
only the field shown on the locator user interface.
an ArcFM Display Field search:
Select ArcFM Display Field from the Locator Tool field on the
Select a feature class in the Search field.
Select the Show All Tables checkbox to expand your search to
include all tables in your geodatabase.
Enter a search value in the next field. The label on this field
indicates the primary display field. This attribute may vary depending
on the feature class chosen in the search field. Each feature class
may have a different primary display field.
Using the ArcFM
Display Field locator, you can incorporate database-specific wildcards
to locate multiple features: enter % as a wildcard when using Oracle
data and * when using Access data. This lets you search for all features
in the selected layer or all features that have, for instance, VLV9
in the current Display Field. If you enter only a wildcard value without
the Exact Match checkbox selected, the Locator will return all features
including those with NULL values. If you enter only a wildcard value
with the Exact Match checkbox selected, the Locator will return all
features except those with a value of NULL.
Select the Exact Match checkbox to return only features that
have the specific criteria entered. For example, with the checkbox
selected FUS1 would return only FUS1. Without the checkbox selected
it may return: FUS1, FUS11, FUS12, etc.
Click Find to execute the search.
Search results are displayed in the window below the search
fields. If you want to modify how the search results are returned,
click the Options button.
Click Clear to clear the primary display field value. This
will not clear the found set.
