Properties

Note: See Properties Panel for an overview of how this tool works.

 

The Properties tab page displays all simple, non-column based properties. A property will appear in this list if it meets the following requirements.

The property tab page uses a properties list control to display and edit properties.

 

Setting Object Properties

Editing objects properties changes the property by adding or removing a set statement within the body of the object. If multiple instances of the same property is set within the object, only the last instance will be changed.

The Access Properties

Some components such as views, modal panels and reports contain a special category of properties called “Access”. These property names are “Deferred Object” and “Access Name”. As the space in the names should indicate, these are not real properties. This provides a mechanism for developers to create deferred views and CD_Popup views. It also provides a mechanism for providing the access method names for views.

This category and the properties in the category will only appear for object properties and for properties that support these features.

 

Setting Class Properties

Editing class properties changes the property by adding or removing a set statement within the class constructor (Construct_Object). It does not change the value of a property defined with the property command. Typically you will only edit class properties if you wish to change a property value that was defined in a super class.
