I've got a line feature class that contains Date field. I've made a layout view in order to display time animation of this feature class. I've managed to enable the time option in the layer and to create a Data Frame Time text in correspondence to the elapsed time.
I'm looking to enrich the layout by creating a dynamic text element of the feature class' accumulated 'Shape_Length' field, according to the elapsed date\time - time elapsing > accumulated 'Shape_Length' gets bigger.
I've tried several ways to do it, but didn't succeed so far:
- I've tried inspecting the Data Frame Time element Text syntax ---
<dyn type="dataFrame" name="Layers" property="time" emptyStr="[off]"/>--- but couldn't figure how to change it to show the 'Shape_Length' field.
- I've try an alternative approach: to create a date based graph. I've followed this link, and search quite along time in the Advanced Properties of the graph how to make it a time enabled and also how to make it accumulative. Didn't work as well.
I think the answer would be in connection to the LayerTime function.
