What are travel attributes?

Travel modes and network attributes are collectively known as travel attributes. Network attributes are properties of the network elements that control traversability over the network. These attributes can be configured to be used by travel modes.

The table below lists the keyboard shortcuts to navigate on the Travel Modes, Costs, and Restrictions tabs.

Keyboard shortcuts

Keys

Usage

F2

Move the focus to the name editing control for the current item (travel mode or attribute) by default.

If the focus is on an editable grid cell (for example, an evaluator or parameter cell in Type column of grid), F2 instead shows the editing control for that cell.

Tab

Change the focus to the next focusable element. If the focus is on a grid, it instead moves through cells of the grid.

Shift+Tab

Change the focus to previous focusable element.

Enter

Close and save the properties dialog box by default.

If the focus is on a grid cell in editing state, Enter moves the current grid cell out of editing state.

If the focus is on a grid cell in nonediting state, Enter moves to the next cell in the current column.

Shift+Enter

If the focus is on a grid cell in nonediting state, Shift+Enter moves to the previous cell in the current column.

Esc

Close the properties dialog box without saving any changes by default.

If the focus is on a grid cell in editing state, Esc moves the current grid cell out of editing state.

Alt+Access Key

Show any access keys on the properties dialog box. The access key is the one with underscore. Press Alt+Access Key to move to a control.

Spacebar

If the focus is on an expander, Spacebar collapses or expands the expander.

If the focus is on a check box, Spacebar checks or unchecks the check box.

Alt+Up Arrow

or Alt+Down Arrow

If the focus is on a combo box, you can use the Up Arrow and Down Arrow keys to loop through the items. You can also use the Alt+Up Arrow and Alt+Down Arrow keys to expand or collapse the drop-down portion of the combo box.

Note:

While travel modes and all attributes should not have leading space, trailing spaces or be an empty string, cost attributes additionally require that they should not have internal spaces either. Since fields are created based on cost attribute names of the network dataset used by the network analysis layer, having internal spaces in cost attributes would cause confusion as it is hard to match cost attributes to related field names. For example, a cost attribute named “My Minutes” in a network dataset would result in a field named: “Attr_My_Minutes” in the table associated with the Stops sub-layer of the Route Analysis layer.
