2.4.3. Rename an Object through Expression View

(CimEdit only) An object can easily be named or renamed in the Expression View window.

This can be very useful when an expression has been assigned to an object within a group that might not have been named in its Properties dialog box. The name makes the object much easier to identify.

  1. Do the following.


Right-click an object in the Expression View window.


Select Rename on the Popup menu.

A name can be entered or edited for the object.

  1. Enter the new name.

A message opens cautioning you that the name will change.

  1. Click OK.

Note: Clicking Cancel cancels changing the name.

Result: The new name is listed in the expression View window and on the General tab in the object's Properties dialog box.
