User-defined template attributes

User-defined template attributes are defined in the contentattributes_userdefined.lst file. By default, this file includes most of the user-defined attributes that are visible in the part properties. To use your own attributes in templates and reports, you should make a copy of the file, rename it appropriately, and add the necessary attributes to that file.

The contentattributes_userdefined.lst file is divided into two sections:

  • A list of attribute names and default settings:

  • A list of attributes assigned to content types:

    1. The content typedetermination of which template attributes can be used in the template object value fields for a template component row

      Content types are mainly based on object types.

    3. Customizable comments, such as the tab name in the user-defined attributes dialog box
    4. The name of the user-defined attributeobject property created by the user in order to widen the range of predefined object properties

      User-defined attributes are used when the predefined object properties are not sufficient but more properties are needed. For example, comment, locked, and erection status are user-defined attributes.
