Linked Object Configuration

If you are a component designer creating a linked source object, you have the difficult job of determining how specific public and private Variable IDs, procedures and scripts operate between the source object and its links. Once you make your choices, making the object a source for linked objects is easy.

 Guide: When sorting out the choices for linked objects:


Need to have different values for different links, make the variable public

Should be identical to the linked source object's variable, make the variable private

Scripts or procedures

Need to be executed for all the linked objects, write them for the linked source object.

Are unique to one or more linked containers, write them for the linked containers only.

Steps to create linked objects are:

Step 1

Create linked objects.

Step 2
