browse a table (MS, calibration table, image)

Brings up a browser that can open and display any CASA table (MS, calibration table, image). The tablename can be specified at startup, or any table can be loaded after the browser comes up. It is possible to edit any table and its contents using the "Edit" tab on the top bar, but be careful with this, and make a backup copy of the table before editing!

The tab "table keywords" on the left side of the table browser will allow you to look at sub-tables by left-clicking and then view the desired sub-table. Another useful feature is to make a 2D plot of the values in two table columns.

Use the "Close Tables and Exit" option from the Files menu to quit the casabrowser.

A detailed description on how to use the table browser can be found in the Chapter pages on "Browsing through MeasurementSets and Calibration Tables".




Name of table file on disk. For example, caltable.tbl, imagefile.image, etc.


If the default False is changed to True, this disables the filtering options and allows editing the table.

List of columns to sort by.


TaQL query string for prefiltering the table (see "Examples" tab at the top-right)
