Container Layout Map
The container layout map will display a 2 dimensional representation of the container. This option is only available for containers that have been configured to hold specimens in the lkup_container_type code list. In addition, the Layout Start Corner parameter must be set for the container for this option to be available. The Container Layout Map represents specimens in the container by displaying the BSI IDs or Current Labels of the specimens within the container.
If there is more than one specimen that has been assigned the same location within a container, the Container Layout Map cannot be displayed. To view the BSI ID and Current Labels of specimens within that container, open the Container Contents tab.
To open the Container Layout Map from the Locations Editor or Locations Viewer:
- Check that the Layout Start Corner is set correctly.
- Select Container Layout Map from the View menu. The Container Layout Map will open in a new tab in the dialog.
The data displayed in the cells on the map are controlled by the Data Displayed in Box Layout Cells option in the Locations preferences.
Once the Container Layout Map is opened in the editor, it can be printed. When printed, a PDF will be created with both a textual and barcode representation of the BSI ID in the user specified barcode format.
