Constraints Tab
On the Constraints tab, you can add, modify, or remove constraints for the advanced configurable part selected in the navigation pane on the left. For more information on advanced configurable parts, see Options and Variants Capabilities.
Three types of constraints can be created for the advanced configurable part:
Case table
External application constraint
The Constraints table displays all constraints defined for the advanced configurable part and provides summary information for each.
The following actions are available from the Constraints table toolbar:
Marks the constraint for deletion.
Places the selected constraints on the clipboard. The constraints are not removed until they are pasted in a new location.
Copies the selected constraints to the clipboard.
Pastes the constraints from the clipboard after the selected row or at the bottom of the table if no rows are selected.
Opens a new window where you can add a comment to one or more changes existing on the selected row in the table.
The following table describes the columns displayed for each constraint:
Constraint Type
The type of constraint.
The identifying name for the constraint.
Expression /Parameter
Contents displayed depend upon the selected constraint type.
If the selected constraint type is Expression, the cell contains the text of the expression.
If the selected constraint type is Case Table, the cell contains the parameter names used for the case table.
If the selected constraint type is External Application, the cell contains the name of the class being used.
Text displayed when the constraint is violated (optional).
Description of the constraint (optional).
Some of these columns are configurable. See Customizing Table Views for more information.
