-There is a **//Visible//** checkbox in the line with each sensor. It controls whether the sensor is shown or hidden. By default, depending on sensor type the checkbox is enabled or disabled. However, you may want to hide or show some particular sensors. Hiding is reasonable if a sensor is used as a validator and does not have its proper value. ​+There is a **Visible** checkbox in the line with each sensor.

-If a sensor is visible, then the **//Time//** checkbox may become enabled for it. If this box is checked, in the [[user/​monitor/​monitor#​additional_information_about_the_unit|additional information]] about the unit, in addition to the value of the sensor in parentheses,​ it can also be specified how long the value of the sensor parameter remains unchanged.

-:!: //​Attention!//​\\ ​Some limitations are applied to this feature. The sensor should have no calculation table, validators, custom intervals, and the parameter of the sensor should not contain any references to other sensors. In these cases, the Time checkbox is unavailable. Besides, it is not possible to activate the //Time// option for the ignition sensor if there is a [[cms/​units/​sensors/​param#​conversion_of_parameters|bitwise control]] indicated in its parameter.  ​+:!: Some limitations are applied to this feature.

-The order of the sensors can be changed manually. To place sensors in a required order, just drag them up and down holding the arrow-shaped icon on the left. The order, as well as visibility, is taken into account in the unit tooltip, extended unit information,​ track player, track hittest, and in the Messages panel. Only visible sensors are shown and they are displayed in the order as given here, in the unit properties ​dialog+The order of the sensors can be changed manually.
