Is it possible to use dynamic text in graphic table element ? If not, any suggestions for making dynamic text element place static/fixed on layout screen would be very helpful.
The information that is displayed in GTE is dynamic too so if you don't want to your Dynamic Text , you could create a GTE element that has no border so it looks like a Dynamic Text but you have more options as far a linking to data with GTE than Dynamic text.
Firstly, thanks for the suggestions. It seems I need to be more specific ; the abilities that you provide for the dynamic text for example current date can not be identified in the graphic table cell. For instance, "<dyn type="date" format="dd MMM yy"/>" tag turns nothing in the cell. Is there any way to use this in gte ?
The options for gte cells are ; simple text element and text field of the datasourse (which is dynamic) but any suggest to get current date from pc in gte cell is the feature that ı'm looking for.
GTE can only look at data in your geodatabase. So the only way I can think of to get the current date in GTE would be to have a python script run daily that would calculate a field on your feature class/table that GTE would look at.
Does the Dynamic Text element not stay in a fixed location in the layout window?
