Nevron Vision for SharePoint Documentation
The Map Designer

Nevron Map for SharePoint can be visually edited in any major web browser, though a web based designer. The map designer is invoked by the "Run Map Designer" toolbar command, which appears above the web part in page editing mode. The map designer header consists of two important controls - the main toolbar and the main tab strip as shown by the following screenshot:

The editing info bar provides information about the currently edited web part, the current SharePoint user and the location of the edited web part in SharePoint.

The main toolbar provides access to the main commands related to the webpart that you edit - see The Main Toolbar for more info.

The main tabstrip provides access to different web part settings - following is a brief overview of its pages:

The Main Toolbar

The main toolbar has the following commands:

No changes are applied to the edited web part until you click the OK or Apply buttons.
Data Source Page

The Data Source page lets you connect the map to a tabular data source. Currently you can bind the map to the following types of data sources:

See the Connecting to Data topic for a complete discussion.

The map must be connected to a data source prior to editing the rest of its settings. That is why for a blank web part the Data Source page is displayed first. Once specified, it is not recommended to change your data source, since expressions that you write may reference field values from the data source.

Map Page

Nevron Map for SharePoint supports multiple map layers (inside a single map area), legend and titles. Each map layer can display information about itself on an arbitrary legend. The Map area, legends and titles are edited from the Map Area, Legends and Titles taps. See the Map Area, Legends and Titles topics for a full description of the settings per each of these elements.

The Layout and Appearance sub-tabs of the Map Designer tab control general layout and appearance settings, which are not associated with the map area or a particular legend or title. See The Map Layout for a complete discussion of the map layout.

For web part that is already connected to a data source the Map page is displayed by default.
Code Page
Nevron Map for SharePoint allows for users with development experience in C# or VB.NET to inject custom code, which is executed at runtime. The code injection is dynamic meaning that no deployment of assemblies is needed for the injected code to run.
Pivot Page

Nevron Map for SharePoint is built on top of the Nevron Pivot Engine. The Pivot page lets you define the map filters, which helps you filter the data set as well as the condtion on which the map data table record groups are created. See the The Map Data Model topic for more info on connecting your map to data.

Rendering Page
The Rendering page lets you tune the image rendering options of the map. See the Rendering Options for more information.
Preview Page
The Preview page lets you see a WYSIWYG preview of the webpart as it will appear at runtime. The preview is generated with the processed map pivot and uses the current data source state.
Browser Compatibility

The Designer is compatible with all modern web browsers (Chrome, FireFox, Opera, IE 11/10/9/8/7 etc.). Browser compatibility is ensured by the JQuery JavaScript library and a common CSS layer developed by Nevron.
