Method Detail


public static java.lang.String replaceSettings(java.lang.String input)
Replace all settings variables with their values. This function takes the input string and looks for all settings that are embedded in the string and replaces those settings with the value of that setting. E.g., given a string "The survey is $survey and the scale is $scale." the method will look for the settings survey and scale and in the global Settings and replace these substrings with their current values. E.g., the previous might return with "The survey is Digitized Sky Survey and the scale is 0.00133." If a setting has multiple values, only the first is used. If no value is found for the setting, then the text is left unchanged.
