Changing an Item's Icon

You can use this option to choose an icon to apply to the item passing through the Change Object.

The Icon option in the Change Object Menu enables you to change Item icons according to an INDEX, which can be a reference to an Attribute Value.

You make your selections using the Icon Assignment Table Dialog.

You can build up a list of possible icon changes.

You also make reference to an Attribute, whose current value is the basis of the selection of an icon to change to.

If the current index (the Attribute value) being checked against has no match in the list, the default is invoked, and the icon remains unchanged.

A row of buttons along this dialog enable you to add or edit the Icons the Item will change to, and their index values.
