A schematic diagram template holds the database and configuration properties defining the content and presentation of one or several schematic diagrams that will be generated. It holds the properties defining the representation of feature layers that compose the schematic diagrams and so behaves as the template for the display properties of specific schematic diagrams of a network. It allows generation of a particular type of schematic diagram containing a set of expected types of schematic features. Typically, in the example of an electric network, a schematic diagram template can be defined for a schematic of primaries and switches, and another template can be defined for a schematic of the internal diagrams (inside plant) of the devices.
A schematic diagram template is assigned to one schematic dataset, although more than one schematic diagram template can be defined for the same schematic dataset.
Schematic Dataset Editor allows you to create and define schematic diagram templates.
The definition of a schematic diagram template is determined by its schematic builder and by the schematic feature classes with which it is associated. Those associated schematic feature classes are usually all managed by the specified schematic builder, but you can also configure some of these schematic feature classes to get mixed diagrams that put together schematic features built by the schematic builder and schematic features coming from custom queries that operate from any type of database.
Schematic rules can be specified on a schematic diagram template to automate the content of the schematic diagrams it implements.
A particular schematic layout algorithm can be specified on the schematic diagram template so it is automatically launched during the generation and update of the diagrams. This default schematic layout algorithm applies at the update when the updated diagram has no saved edits.
The schematic algorithm layouts that could be applied or not on schematic diagrams based on a schematic diagram template can also be specified on the schematic diagram template.
A flag can be also positioned on the schematic diagram template so all its diagrams are automatically loaded in memory at their opening.
