Using Property Parameters

At this point, the New Property Wizard should be displaying the “Property Parameters” page.

Each data type defines a set of parameters that you can use to customize it for a particular property. In this case, Studio displays a list of parameters available for string data.

Through parameters, we could specify such characteristics as:

  • The caption to use when displaying this property on a Web page (CAPTION)

  • The minimum and maximum permitted lengths of values for this property (MINLEN and MAXLEN)

  • The list of permitted values for an enumerated (multiple choice) property (VALUELIST)

Here, for instance, we specify the maximum permitted length for a description of 300 characters.

Press the Finish button to add the new property to our class.
