VirtualSpace editor and tools

The properties shown in the VirtualSpace Editor depend on the selected VirtualSpace entity type – all VirtualSpace entities have the states Enabled, Read-only, Visible and Selected. By default, they are all Enabled and Visible, not Read-only and not Selected. The value of each VirtualSpace entities can be changed depending on the type of data in the editing pane at the bottom right – specialized for each component.

The VirtualSpace Editor

Edit values for VirtualSpace entities

  • The vsField has a Value editor that better shows all the value settings:
  • Type: the datatype of the value,
  • Null: if the value is Nullable or not (clicking on Null hyperlink will set the value to null),
  • Value: entry field to enter the value in a string that can be parsed by the value type in question without pattern, e.g. 0 for a Double, P2DT3H4M for a Duration of 2 days, 3 hours and 4 minutes, 12:45:56 for a LocalTime value,
  • Pattern: the pattern to use for the formatter of the value type, e.g. #,##0.00;(#,##0.00) for a number with 2 decimals displayed as (123.45) when negative, hh’o”clock’ a, zzzz for a date as 12 o’clock PM, Pacific Daylight Time,
  • Use tag processing: use this option to enable the plain string entered as pattern to accept tags to reference a text table for special localized patterns depending on the language used for the client session.
  • Locale: combobox used for testing purposes to see how a value would look like in a specific locale. The tooltip of the Value entry field shows a preview of the value with the pattern in the specified locale; you can also toggle the preview to always be shown.
