Parameters Tab
The Parameters tab displays the parameters that are defined for the advanced configurable part. For more information on advanced configurable parts, see Options and Variants Capabilities.
The following table explains the icons available from the toolbar on this tab:
New Parameter
Opens the New Parameter window to specify the values for the new parameter. Each parameter is given its own row in the table.
If required, the selected part is automatically checked out when you create a new parameter. The new parameter is added in the last row of the Parameters table.
If Specified By is set to Value, the value is validated based on the parameter types.
If Specified By is set to Expression, the expression is validated to ensure the syntax is correct. The Expression Editor is launched in a separate dialog box.
Opens the Edit Parameter window for the selected parameter, where the parameter values can be modified.
Opens the Page Break Properties window for the selected page break, where the page break properties can be modified. The page break properties include image URL, image height, image width, and the title.
Insert Page Break Below
Inserts a new page break after the selected row.
Move Up
Moves the selected parameter or page break row up in the Parameters table. This action cannot be performed on the first row in this table.
Move Down
Moves the selected parameter or page break row down in the Parameters table. This action cannot be performed on the last row in this table.
Contains the following actions to manage the parameters defined for the part. Some of these actions are also available on the toolbar of the Parameters tab:
New Parameter
Insert Page Break
Insert Child Resolution: Inserts a child resolution row in the table below the selected row. The action can be performed only when the total number of child parts does not exceed the defined child resolution count. A child resolution is used to change the order of the input parameters so that those of the child part are processed by the system at that time. If the structure contains multiple levels of child parts, a child resolution can be inserted for each parent part in the structure to reference its children.
Inherit Parameters: Allows one or more parameters defined for the parent part to be inherited for the selected part. This action is unavailable for top-level parts.
Move Up
Move Down
The following table describes the columns in the Parameters table:
Represents the name of the parameter or indicator for a page break, inherited parameter, or child resolution.
Description of the parameter provided during parameter creation. This is not used by a page break, inherited parameter, or child resolution.
Map to Attribute
Displays the attribute to which the parameter is mapped.
Data Type
Indicates the data type of parameter.
The parameter type of Real Number with Units should not be used for calculations. However, it can be used for input parameters that are mapped to global attributes.
Displays the unit selected for the mapped attribute.
Input Enabled
Indicates if parameter input is enabled.
Specifies the phrase displayed in the Specification Editor for this parameter to help user understand what the parameter represents. For example, a prompt may help the user differentiate between selecting interior color and exterior color.
Specified By
Used to indicate if the parameter is dependent upon a value or expression.
Displays the value or expression by which the parameter is specified.
