The Parameter Variation dialog

Summary

This dialog allows you to view, edit or disable a varied parameter used for a component variant.

Access

The Parameter Variation dialog is accessed by performing the following steps:

  1. In a project that includes at least one variant, switch the schematic editor to the compiled view tab located at the bottom left-hand side of the design space.
  2. Double-click on a component's visible, varied parameter (for example, its Comment).

Options/Controls

  • Name – this is a non-editable field that is populated by the logical, as opposed to physical, component parameter information (the name of the parameter).
    • Visible – when this option is enabled, the parameter is displayed (non-editable; set in the base design).
    • Lock – when this option is enabled, the parameter cannot be reassigned (non-editable; set in the base design).
  • Value – this is a non-editable field that is populated with the logical component parameter data (the value of the parameter).
    • Visible – when this option is enabled, the value is displayed (non-editable; set in the base design).
    • Lock – when this option is enabled, the value cannot be reassigned (non-editable; set in the base design).
  • Variation (will be saved in <projectname>)
    • Varied Value – uncheck this option to disable the parameter variation. When checked, the varied value is active and can be edited in the associated textbox.​
