Component Property Values

Component Property Values

You set the values for the properties of a component.
When the value of a property is Boolean, it appears as a check box to the left of the property name. For example, the
optional
property of a
Content
component is Boolean.
When the value is a string, it appears to the right of the property name, surrounded by double quotes. Valid values are strings of valid alphanumeric characters, symbols, or control characters, but not including null characters. To enter a non-keyboard character in a text field, press
CTRL+A
, and then type the three-digit decimal code for the character. For example, type
CTRL+A
010 for a line feed, or
CTRL+A
255 for the Icelandic letter "thorn" (þ). For example, the value of the
expression
property of a
CalculateValue
component is a string.
When the value is a selection, it appears to the right of the property name. When you edit the value, a list box appears. For example, the
val_type
property of a
Variable
component is a selection.
When the value is a hierarchical tree of properties, it appears to the right and below the property name. For example, when you set the
format
property of a
Parser
component to CustomFormat, a tree of additional properties appears.
The following figure shows the
format
property of a
Parser
component, which appears as a tree:
global level myParser = Parser >> Level 2 example_source = ... Level 2 format = CustomFormat >> Level 3 delimiters = DelimiterHierarchy Level 4 delimiter_hierarchy line Level 4 ... Level 3 pre_processor = ... Level 3 default_transformers = Level 4 ... Level 2 contains line Level 2 ...
