Concerning the specifications properties several options available but are sometimes grayed in function of type selected.


 


If the option ''Obligatory information'' is checked SmartProperties could not be validated if a value is not indicated. A star will be added beside a property whose information is obligatory.


 

 

At the time of the validation if one of these property were not indicated a message appears and the properties in question are put in red in the interface.


  

 


 SmartProperties could not be validated if the value of the property does not comprise at least 5 characters.

  Example : the user will not be able to inform more 15 characters.


If the option ''To block the field'' is checked, the field will be blocked when the property already exists in the file SOLIDWORKS. During the first use the user will be able to inform a value with the property, once validated it will not be able more to modify it.


Among these options one can ''To block a field according to another property'':

 

In the example above one blocks the fields if the property” Height'' is different from ''100''        .

 

In the example above one blocks the fields if the property” Height'' is equal to ''40''.

 

In the example above one blocks the fields if the property” Height'' exists.


If the option ''To always block the field'' is checked, the field will be always blocked.


If the option ''To mask'' is checked the field will not be displayed in the data entry form SmartProperties. That can be used to create properties which do not need to be visible.

Examples : the variables SOLIDWORKS, properties not requiring not entered, etc…


The option ''List of the authorized variables'' is a good means to force to inform a property with words or character strings quite precise. It is enough for that to create a file of type text comprising the list of the authorized words. SmartProperties could not be validated if the value of the property by the user is not indicated in the referred textual file.


As long as the user will not have informed the good character string it will not be able to validate the utility SmartProperties. A message will appear.


If the option ''To authorize that letters'' is checked the field will accept only letters.

If the option ''To authorize that numbers'' is checked the field will accept only numbers.


It is possible to block or prohibit entered of certain characters.
