I'm making a map of George Washington's travels between Mount Vernon and Williamsburg during his time as a Burgess [1759-1775]. There are about 30 trips. I want users to be able to turn trips on and off by clicking on the checkbox in the Table of Contents; one check box for each trip.
A trip has a point for a each stop, and various polylines to indicate direction of travel on a route. These are included in a geodatabase called "Burgess". For each trip I would like for users to be able to turn these on or off with a single click. Right now I have to click on each of the feature elements to toggle them on/off.
From my untutuored view it looks like a Group Layer might be able to do this, but I may be misreading this entirely.
If I right-click on Layer in the ToC and select New Group Layer, the spinner does its thing and stops, but as far as I can tell nothing happens. I'm probably not looking in the right place. Maybe I'm approaching this in a wrong way. Maybe I can't do what I want to do. Maybe I'm using the wrong terminology.
I've attached a screenshot of the ToC for this map [I only have two trips in development at the moment; more to come].
Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
Thanks very much, indeed.
