Property Names vs Internal Names

Previous Next

Each property name maps to an internal name.

The property name is displayed in the Property Inspector and Object Activator. The internal name may be needed when using deprecated forms of scripting, e.g. when using the control-set-values() action, when using the ESI action interface, or when interpreting ESI reports. In the ESI action interface, you can only refer to properties by means of their internal name, preceded by "XtN". So for example, instead of using the Windows Designer's Allow Horizontal Resize property, you must use "XtNallowHoriz".
