7 • ARENA VISUAL DESIGNER Thumbnails The Thumbnails tool window is useful for viewing 2D and 3D images that can then be used when creating a style class or dragged into place in the scene layout. The image below shows the thumbnail carousel of pictures in the “Cars” library being previewed. Getting started with Visual Designer Working with Dashboards Creating a basic dashboard 1. For this example, we will return to the Airport Security Example.doe model. This model was extracted to the Examples folder when you installed Arena. Note that the corresponding Visual Designer project file “Airport Security Example.a23” has already been created. When a corresponding Visual Designer project exists, the file will be automatically opened when starting Visual Designer. To create this visualization project from scratch, you can either rename the existing Arena model or use the model you may have created from Chapter 2. With the airport model open, go to Tools > Arena Visual Designer to start the application or click the Arena Visual Designer icon ( ). When Arena Visual Designer opens, the application prompts you to name the project. Visualization projects are saved with an .a23 file extension (Airport Security Example.a23). The default is the name of the current Arena model with the .a23 extension. The default directory is the same as the current directory of the saved Arena model. It is recommended that visualization projects be saved to the same directory as the associated Arena .doe model file. Only one Visual Designer project may be open at a time for editing. 131

GETTING STARTED WITH ARENA Since we will be starting with a dashboard for our Airport Security Example, Select “Dashboard Project” from the New Project dialog box. Click OK to proceed to Arena Visual Designer. 2. When opening a new Visual Designer Dashboard Project, the initial dashboard window (shown below) is displayed with “Drop Toolbox Control here” shown in the center of the dashboard. On the left are the Toolbox and Editor Explorer and on the right are the Project Explorer and Properties window. Use the Toolbox to design the layout and to add controls to the dashboard. 3. The dashboard may be segmented to hold multiple containers by dragging the Split Horizontally or Split Vertically controls into the dashboard container window. Alternatively, segment the dashboard by placing the mouse pointer in the dashboard window, right-clicking and selecting either the Split Horizontally or Split Vertically options. For this simple example, you will create 1 plot of the number of passengers waiting in security. 132
