Object - page of item PmiItem

Description:
This page with its configurators is common for all graphic items except for: PmiRoot and PmiInstance.
Configuration items:
Object nameName (identifier) of the graphic item. It serves for returning a reference to this item by the PmiItem.Items method.

This configurator sets the initial value of the property Name.

This is a system name and must not contain empty string, diacritics, spaces and the first character must not be a number.

ClassGraphic item type. See property: TypeName.
Object pathName of the object including full path. This text can be inserted as first argument of the PmiItem.Items method. See property: FullName.
VisibleSpecifies if the item is visible (and thus active) on the runtime.

This configurator sets the initial value of the property Visible.

Control enabledIf checked (default), actions over the item as for example mouse clicking, editing, etc. are functional.

If not checked then the item (and its subitems) does not get the focus and the events will not be called for example: onFocusIn, onFocusOut, onKeyPress, onMousePress, onMenuFill, onButtonUp ...

This configurator sets the initial value of the property Enabled.

Draw item backgroundIf checked, then the item is drawn by the following way: at first the item background is drawn (transparent space in the graphic item) and then the graphic item itself is drawn. Thus it must be checked if the item background has to be re-drawn when the item is re-drawn.
Render outline frame around the focused itemIf checked then the outline frame is rendered (thin rectangle around item) once the item gets focus.
Open the local menu also by left mouse buttonIf checked then the local item menu can be displayed also by left mouse button or the space key. The default way to open the local menu is pressing the right mouse button.

The local item menu can be created by filling in the events: onMenuFill and onMenuSelect (see Example for JavaScript or Example for VBScript in description of the PmMenu object).

Item parametersList and configuration of user defined item parameters.

It is a text in format PmNamedValues.

Tooltip textHere a text for the quick help (tooltip) is entered that is displayed in the running application (if conditions for calling the tooltip are met). It means that when the mouse cursor remains over the item for one second, a small box with the entered text appears. This box vanishes after some time (about 15 seconds) by itself.
