  • MOPEKS® Library - 8 Set Property Value in Entity


    For the background to operations in the Library please see 'Guide ⇨ Library ⇨ Background'

    Please note that each action in the Library has a separate entry - otherwise the document size would be excessive.

    In this context, the word 'Entity' refers to an Object or an Environment.

    You can sort columns into ascending/descending order by left clicking on the heading.

    Option 8 - Set Property Value in Entity

    You can use this option to change the value of a Property belonging to an Object or to an Environment. Both processes are the same in principle.

    We are going to change Caesar's 'Orientation Vertical Axis' from 90 degrees to 80 degrees. If Caesar is not in your list of Objects, then add him (or something else) as outlined in Option 10. You can then give him the Property 'Orientation Vertical Axis' by using Option 7.

    Be careful if you change a value for an existing Object - changing the colour slightly should be a safe thing to do.

    The process is as follows and is illustrated in the animated gif below if you care to left click on it:

    A. Ensure the 'Entity' radio button is clicked ('Objects' in this example).
    B. Ensure the '8. Set Value in a Property' radio button is clicked.
    C. Highlight the Entity in which you wish to set the Value of the Property ('Caesar' in this example)
    D. Highlight the Property whose value you wish to set ('Orientation Vertical Axis' in this example)
    E. Set the new Value of the Property in the green text box ('80' in this example)
    F. Press the green 'Set Value in a Property' button
