Data Transform form - Set action
Use the Set action to set the target equal to the source. When you specify a target page that does not yet exist on the clipboard, the Set action creates the page.
To select a value for the target property from the set of values defined in case instances for the property, click Select values.
JSON data model format
When the data model format is JSON, there are the following differences in behavior:
- The order of the steps is not guaranteed.
- The data transform is bidirectional.
Set .pyWorkIDPrefix equal to "W-" Set .HardwareItems(1).Price equal to ""
The Set action has a fixed Relation setting of
equal to. That is, the Set action always sets the
target equal to the source, and establishes no other sort of relationship between the target
Supported features clipboard data model format
When the data model format is clipboard, the Set action supports the target and source combinations shown in the following table. These features are not supported when the data model format is JSON.
The class of the target does not have to match the class of the source.
|Single Value Property||equal to||Property Reference||.Department|
|Single Value Property||equal to||Literal||"W-"|
|Single Value Property||equal to||Expression||.FIRSTNAME + " " + .LASTNAME|
|Single Value Property||equal to||Linked Property Reference||.pxCreateOperator.pyUserName|
|Page||equal to||Page||OrderItems(1) equal to HardwareItems(1)|
The source and target support the following items:
- Expressions (in the source column only)
- Parameters specified on the Parameters tab (for example,
- Page Lists
- Page Groups
- Value Lists
- Value Groups
- Function calls (in the source column only )
When the Set action is preceded by an Update Page, the context of the source is reset and all property references are relative to the new page.
The use of
Parent keywords is not supported.
You cannot set properties on data pages. Such properties cannot be specified as targets.
References to linked properties are read-only. Such properties can be specified as sources, but not as targets.
You cannot set reference properties (properties that have the Reference Property check box selected on the Advanced tab of their Property forms). They cannot be specified as targets.
