Introduction to Geocortex Inline Designer

Geocortex Inline Designer is a component of Geocortex Inline, an HTML5 and JavaScript web application that runs in a browser.

The Designer is a web-based graphical interface that lets you create interactive straight-line diagrams and alignment sheets, allowing you to present your linear referenced data to your users in a dynamic interface called a view.

Users access views by logging into the web map viewer Inline has been deployed to—Geocortex Viewer for HTML5, Geocortex Web, or Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS. They can then interact with the data using the charts and actions you have configured in the Designer.

This help system provides information to help you work with the Designer.

Geocortex Inline Designer Interface

The Geocortex Inline Designer provides an easy-to-use, intuitive interface that lets you create the following types of charts from your linear referenced data sources:

Charts are added to bands, allowing you to group related charts in the same band.

Once you have added a chart, you can customize it by adjusting its display options, adding labels, creating tooltips, and configuring custom actions that your users can trigger—for example, you may want to allow users to print a report from a chart.

Advanced options include the ability to add custom functions. You can use these for many purposes, for example, you can create functions that filter the data displayed in a chart, fine-tune display options, or set the band/chart name using a variable.

Integration with Esri Portal

Geocortex Inline works closely with Esri ArcGIS Online and Portal for ArcGIS. Use your preferred portal to create web maps, and then use those maps as data sources to create your views in the Designer.

Sign in to the Designer using your ArcGIS Administrator identity. If you do not have an on-premise portal, you can sign in with your ArcGIS Online account.
