About this task

To use global parameters when specifying object properties:


  1. Insert an object in your visual project.
  2. From the Properties view, select the property that will derive its value using your global parameter and type =your_global_parameter_name in the corresponding property cell.
  3. You can also use a global parameter in an expression that will be evaluated in order to derive the property value. Open the Expression Designer. The global parameters that have been defined are listed in the left pane.
