Routine Step

From Planimate Knowledge Base
Jump to: navigation, search

This window enables a line in a routine to be viewed in detail. The various parameters that the particualr routine operation accepts can be edited. The operation can be changed and a comment set.

Many operations will set a Result or Target. This might be an attribute, label, column or table reference, depending on the operation selected.

Double clicking or selecting a line and pressing Space will edit it.

If the UseDialogReferenceEdit option (Platform INI options, Routine section) is "No", editing is performed in-place in the field, enabling expressions to be typed.

If the UseDialogReferenceEdit option is "Yes" then a dialog appears instead.

After a parameter is edited, the next one is automatically selected. To close the window, press Enter or Esc or click outside of it. The window always commits its changes when it closes. Changes can be undone by typing CTRL-Z once back in the routine list.

You can use the left and right arrows to move between routine lines without closing the Routine Step Window. Note that an "undo" following this stepping will undo all changes to details made while the Routine Step window was open.
