Inheriting properties of a datatype with simple variables

Previous chapterNext chapter Show allShow all    Hide allHide all

On creating a new variable in principle all properties of the datatype are inherited. This is marked with a checkmark in the property.

Inherited properties are marked with a checkmark

In this example all properties are inherited from the data type except "Unit". This property was overwritten in the variable. If the property Unit is changed in the basic data type, the property Unit is changed in all variables based on this data type. But not in variable, where this property was overwritten (changed).

attention Attention

Please be aware, that changes in the data type always change all variables based on that data type (except properties that were overwritten). So be careful and be aware of the consequences!
