• Properties:

The options of reading and application of the properties are very often used to recover the value of a property contained in a configuration personalized in order to apply it to a property of the document.


This part relates to two concepts.

The first concept ''Reading of the properties'' relates to the mode of reading of the properties when the icon  will be used.

For example this option will be used to recover a value of property in a configuration while using “Value of another property“.


 


''Since the document“: the recovered properties will be those defined in the ''Customize'' tab of the referenced SOLIDWORKS file.


''Since the active configuration'': the recovered properties will be those of the active configuration at the time of the recording of the file SOLIDWORKS.


''Since the 1° configuration“: the recovered properties will be those of the first configuration present in the referred file SOLIDWORKS. Generally it is the configuration ''Default''.


''Since the named configuration“: the recovered properties will be those of a specific configuration. In the example above one will recover the properties specific to the configuration '' Open Position” of the file SOLIDWORKS referred. In the same way, the character joker”*“can be used.

 


''Since all the configurations'': all the properties specific to all the configurations, of the file SOLIDWORKS referred, will be recovered, but not those of the personalized properties.


''Since the document and all the configurations'': all the properties specific to all the configurations, of the file SOLIDWORKS referred, will be recovered as well as the personalized properties of the document.


The second concept ''Application of the properties'' relates to the mode of writing of the properties in the selected files.


 

''On the document“: the properties will be applied in the ''Customize'' tab of the listed files.


''On the active configuration'': the properties will be applied to the active configuration of the listed files.


''On the 1° configuration“: the properties will be applied to the first configuration present in the listed files. Generally it is the configuration ''Default''.


''On the named configuration“: the properties will be applied to a specific configuration. In the example above, if this option is checked, one will apply the properties specific to the configuration '' Palettisation” of the listed files.


''On all the configurations'': the properties will be applied to all the configurations, of the listed files.


''On the document and all the configurations'': the reading of the recovered properties will be applied to all the configurations, of the files listed like with the personalized properties of the document.


FOOT-NOTE:

For the 2 last options of reading of the properties “Since all the configurations“and”Since the document and all the configurations“, when one or the other of these options is checked the same option is automatically checked for the application of the properties.
