New Property Definition dialog

Dialogs Overview

The New Property Definition dialog is used for specifying a newly added property.


Property

Name of the property used for expressions and so on. You need to specify a unique name.

Display name

Name to be displayed in the properties window and so on. You cannot use single or double quotation marks in display names.

Data Type

Select the type of the property you are going add. For the object types, see the information at the bottom of this page.

Default value

Specifies the default value.

Enum

When you select "Enum" for data type, a list of options will be specified.

You may specify multiple enum values by separating them with semicolons. A single enum value is separated by commas into multiple factors as follows:

Value, internal string, displayed string, alias

Users only need to specify the value and internal string. For example, an enum value which has the value of "0" and is displayed as "A" will be:

0,A,,


An enum value may be added or deleted if it is a user-added property.

* When you delete an enum value, please make sure to correct the data so that the enum value subject to deletion is replaced with another enum value and no longer used.

Edit virtual property

If you click this button, you will be able to specify a virtual property expression and a virtual property inverse expression

Able to register multiple values separated by semicolons

If you check this box, you will be able to specify multiple values by separating them with semicolons.

Display in all existing windows and styles

If you check this box, the property you added will be displayed in all existing windows and styles.


Addition of object type properties (Ver. 15.2 restricted feature)

In Ver. 15.2 or later, you can specify an object as a data type.
When selecting an object by data type, the dialog will be displayed as shown below.


Table of objects

This is the table of objects pointed to by this property. The split operation root object is included in the operation table.

Auto-generate object

This sets whether, when the object of the specified string code is not found in the table, to automatically generate the object. After adding the property definition, it can be changed with the "Auto generate object" property of the property definition.

Reverse property code and display name

This is the code and display name of the object type property in which the specified object points back to this object.
(Because in Asprova, object type properties mutually share properties, two property definitions are added)
After the property definition is added, the display name can be changed with the "Display Name" property of the property definition. The code cannot be changed.

Read only

Sets whether the added property is read only. After a property definition is added, it can be changed with the "Read Only" property of the property definition.


An object type property is a set of three property definitions, namely object type, reverse property object type, and WBSRef type used when importing/exporting.
If you delete one or two of these property definitions, all three property definitions are automatically deleted.
When importing an XML file and adding property definitions, there must always be three property definitions in the XML file.

 

Deletion of added properties can be done either from the Column Settings dialog or the property definition table.
