If using a Property

When Property is selected in the If drop-down, the comparison syntax shown below appears.

How to

  1. With if Property selected, specify a property to use by double-clicking the blue highlighted text, [not specified]. The Property Chooser box appears.
  2. Choose a global, system, or custom property from those available, or define a new custom property for this test clip.
    • To select a global property, click the Global Property Lists node in the Chooser’s tree (on the left). Select the global list to use and click OK.


    • To select a system property, expand the clip node and locate the object on which the property exists. Typically, this will be either the container or the clip, but it can be anything shown. Once the object is selected in the tree on the left, click the Property Name to use it and click OK.


    • To select an existing custom property, select the object in the tree and then select the custom property from the Custom tab.
    • To enter the property path manually, use the entry form at the bottom of the Property Chooser box.


    The property to use appears in the comparison form to the right of Property.


  3. Select a predicate for the comparison.
  4. Repeat the steps to the right of the predicate symbol you chose. All the same fields are available on the right as were available on the left.

What you should see

For example, in the comparison on the right: If myclipProp is greater than or equal to the constant integer 10, then the comparison passes and the nested clip element, in this case the page, soastastore.com (2), is used. If the Else clause also exists and the comparison fails, then the test will use that clip element instead, in this example--soastastore.com (3).
