Symbol dynamic types
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

Symbols have a data type that is set using the Symbol Type tab in the Symbol Dynamics form


Boolean        

If the Object Variable Type is Boolean then you can or rename from the default True/False to other pairs such as Run/Stop. 

Integer        

If the Object Variable Type is Integer then you can add, delete or rename states. Use F2 to edit the state name.

Child page states        

If the Object Variable Type is Child page states then the state names are derived from the child diagram. You can either change the states on the child page or change the Object Variable Type to Integer.  Note - If you change the states on the child page then it will affect all symbols that are also parents of the same page and have Child page states dynamics. However this will not take effect until you have run the diagram or else gone into and out of the 'Symbol Script and Dynamics' form for each such symbol.
