Editor

Title: title defined for the selected object which can be edited anytime;

Icon/s: icons defined for the selected object which can be edited anytime through the Icon editor;

Hide icon when … is … : this is a condition which allows you to hide/show the component icon, moreover to link this condition to the state of another different component of your project. This function is very useful when you need a component to be shown only on specific conditions;

Disable icon when … is … : this is a condition which allows you to enable/disable the interaction with the component, moreover to link this condition to the state of another different component of your project. This function is very useful when you need to know the state of a component but not to interact with it;

This is the place where you can edit your objects icons. Just click on the icon of the selcted object and then EVE icons list will appear in front of you. Choose the one that best suits you.

Note. There are icons specifically thought to be chosen for the menu of the interface (both Classic then Map). The particular characteristic is a light shadow which looks perfect for menu icons but can look strange for components icon.

Note. When considering a component, both name and icon are the one defined on the Component’s tab. If you will edit component’s name and/or icon from the Interface tab this one will not be changed on the Component’s parameters on Component’s tab. Vice versa, if you edit component’s name and/or icon from the Component’s parameters area of the Component’s tab, this will automatically change also on your user interface. Please refer to “Component’s parameters” guide.
