Properties are characteristics attached to a given “object”.
Most of the time these objects are represented by “nodes” in a tree view.
There are several ways to access object properties:
Columns in a tree view may reflect properties for only one specific type of object. For example in the ContextExplorer window, Protein Groups and Species are visible, but column headers only concern Protein Group properties.
You can find usefull filters in any tree view. For example, let's take the peptide tree view available in the protein group details tab (how to display protein group details).
If you want to display only peptides coming from the three preparation protocols (10ml, 5ml and UF), right-click on the “Child contexts” column in the row (peptide) having the contexts you want, then choose
Show only rows where > Child contexts == 10ml,5ml,UF in the context sensitive menu.
