DriveWorks Pro 15: Generation Tasks - Condition Editor [send feedback...]

Generation Tasks - Condition Editor

The Generation Tasks - Condition Editor can be used to control whether specific tasks in a task sequence are executed.

The Condition Editor is divided into two re-sizable columns:

  • The Conditions column shows the conditions that have been setup for the Generation Task.
  • The Toolbox column shows a searchable list of toolbox items that can be added to the condition column to become a condition in a condition sequence. The properties for the currently selected condition are shown below the toolbox.

To Add a Condition to a Condition Sequence

  1. Drag the toolbox item to add from the toolbox to the condition column.
  2. Configure the condition's properties in the property grid.

To Reorder a Condition in a Condition Sequence

  1. Select the condition to reorder.
  2. Click the "Move Up"/"Move Down" buttons to move the condition up or down.

To Remove a Condition from a Condition Sequence

  1. Select the condition to remove.
  2. Click the "Remove Condition".

To Edit Properties for a Condition

When a condition is selected, its properties are shown in the Properties window.

All conditions have a "Title" property which can be used to give the condition a descriptive name.

Depending on the type of condition, there may be extra properties.

Each property that has a green or a gray orb next to the property name can have a rule applied. A gray orb means that the property has a static value, and a green orb means that the property's value is based on a rule. To switch a property between static or rules-based, double click the orb next to the property name.

To build a static value, type the value into the box next to the property name in the property grid.

To build a rule, click the property name in the property grid, and then click the ellipsis "..." button that appears to launch the rule builder.

For help with a specific condition, see the table below.
