From version 4.1.5
In the development environment, this feature enables you to modify the properties of objects (e.g. windows, components, etc.) via text replacement. The text property can be a link to another object (e.g. a component's link to a tag), localized text or common text. The replacement is done in the new Replace Object Properties Wizard. This wizard can be for example used on selected objects in a visualization window or in the Window Manager (start it via a command from the local menu):
Replace Object Properties
In the first step of the wizard, enter the criteria of text replacement, that is, define what text to look for and what text to replace it with.
In the next step, the wizard displays the list of properties that meet the search criteria, along with the preview of the properties after the replacement. If the text of the property after the replacement does not make sense (e.g. tag does not exist), then the text of the property is marked in red. Prior to confirmation, the user can choose the check boxes from the list to decide over which properties the text replacement should be carried out.
Confirm text replacement
The text replacement of object properties feature is a powerful tool that will accelerate the development of most projects, especially those with similar functional blocks.
