Alias

Steps

Changing the display of a property name

To display a different name for a property currently displayed in a column header or in the properties window, you can specify an alias for the property.

First, right click on the column name in a table view for which you want to specify an alias and select [Property Definition] from the popup menu or right click on the target property from the "Property" field of the properties window and select [Property Definition] from the popup menu.

The settings of the property definition will be displayed in the properties window (or properties window dialog).
For the property "Alias" in the Common tab, specify an alias.


For example, specify "Temperature" for an alias of the order spec 1.


In the column header or properties window, the property is now displayed in the specified alias.


You cannot use single or double quotation marks for aliases.



Changing the display of strings displayed for spec/spec setup tables in the [Table View] menu

* See here for a convenient way of setting the display names for Spec/Spec setup properties


To display a different name for a spec/spec setup table in the [Table View] menu, you can specify an alias for the spec/spec setup object.

First, from under the project of the object window, right click on the spec or spec setup for which you want to specify an alias and select [Edit Spec...] from the popup menu.


The settings of the property definition will be displayed in the properties window (or properties window dialog).
For the property "Alias" in the Common tab, specify an alias.


For example, specify "Temperature" for an alias of the spec 1.


The table name in the [Table View] menu is now displayed in the specified alias.


When an alias is specified for a spec/spec setup object, the alias will be reflected in the [Table View] menu and the caption of the table.
When you change the display of specs for orders, items, resources, please specify an alias individually for each property following the above description of "Changing the display of a property name".
