WidthWidth of the pipeline
ColorColor of the pipeline inside.

This configurator sets the initial value of the property ColorItem.

Border widthPipe border width (in pixels).
Border colorPipe border color.
RadiusRadius of the pipeline curve (in pixels).
StreamingThe flow pattern drawing setting defined in "Pattern" configurator.

The flow is enabled only for pipeline of the "Horizontal", "Vertical" and "Knee" types. Cannot be used for "Shape T" and "Cross" types.

no streaming - The flow is disabled.
obsolete regime - The flow is enabled. This mode is compatible with the old version of PROMOTIC (Promotic6). The flow pattern images drawn in grey tones (including monochromatic) are rendered with the backround color lighting, the images drawn using another color palette are rendered unchanged.
pattern without change - The flow is enabled. The flow pattern images are rendered unchanged. This setting is suitable for flow pattern (images), intended for no change rendering or for patterns created as transparent images. Some predefined patterns/images are suppiled with the PROMOTIC system in the SVG format, created on a transparent background.
auto pattern change - The flow is enabled. The brightness of the flow pattern is customized for the background color. This setting is suitable for flow patterns (images) created as transparent images.
PatternPicture of the stream pattern.

This configurator sets the initial value of the property StreamFile.

It is recommended to always use the path with #pmres: or #appres:.

Macro expression can be used for input (it is evaluated while the window is opening).

 
- If the template is an empty text then it is not displayed.
- It is possible to use preset stream patters which are supplied in the PROMOTIC system in the resource folder #pmres:Img - see Stream - Images. Except these patterns it is possible to use any other pattern (file with picture in the form of svg, png, jpg, bmp ...).
- The pattern is expanded into the whole area of the pipeline item and for this reason the pattern has to be created so as it is bound smoothly to itself.
- The picture must always be created so that it is oriented to the horizontal pipeline by its pattern. If this picture is used in the vertical pipeline, it is rotated by 90° before its expansion automatically.
- Each period (see StreamPeriod) the picture is moved by 3 pixels, and for this reason it is appropriate to use the picture width of 9 or more pixels (the height can be whichever).
PlacementPlacement of the stream pattern to the pipeline section.
center to width
multiply to width
stretch to width
DirectionDirection of the stream.

This configurator sets the initial value of the property StreamDirection.

Macro expression can be used for input (it is evaluated while the window is opening).

0 = Stopped
1 = Streamed from left
2 = Streamed from above
4 = Streamed from right
8 = Streamed from below
PeriodPeriod of the stream in seconds and it indirectly determines the stream rate. The smaller it is, the faster the stream is. The movement is formed by moving the picture. This movement is performed always after elapsing the stream period and the size of the movement is 3 pixels; for that reason it is appropriate to use the picture width of 9 or more pixels (the height can be whichever).

This configurator sets the initial value of the property StreamPeriod.

Macro expression can be used for input (it is evaluated while the window is opening).
