A.10.1.7 Send VOTable

Configuration for Send VOTable action

Configuration for Send VOTable action

The Send VOTable action takes a URL or filename in the table that points to a VOTable document, and sends it as a table using SAMP to an external program to load. It sends a message with the MType table.load.votable, so at least one external SAMP client subscribed to such messages must be registered.

This action can be used to send tables to other running instances of TOPCAT, or to different applications such as GAIA, Aladin or SAMP-enabled Python scripts.

Configuration:

VOTable Location
Gives the URL or filename of the VOTable to send for each row. A column name may be selected from the drop-down list, or the expression language may be used to assemble a location string from other columns.
Table Viewer
Determines which external client(s) to send the VOTable URLs to. The default is "All Clients" which will send it to all eligible applications, but you can select just one. Clicking the selector also serves to indicate which clients capable of acting on this message type are currently registered. If there are none, the action will be disabled.
