DriveWorks Pro 15: Macro Argument [send feedback...]

Macro Argument

The Macro Argument property provides an optional argument to the macro.

Property Type: Static

Default Value: null

Hierarchical Reference: ControlName.MacroArgument

The value or result of a rule, placed in the Macro Argument property, is passed into the special variable Current Macro Argument (see  Info: Special Variables).

Using the Macro Argument property allows the same macro to be used, but with differing outcomes depending on when it is run.

To Change the Default Value

Ensure the property is a static property (It will display the gray orb alongside the property name)

The default value of the static property can be changed by typing the required value directly into the property field:

  1. Click in the property field for Macro Argument property. 
  2. Type the required value directly into the property field.
