Object schema

Use the drop-down list to select the schema containing the REF or object type.

 

Object

Use the drop-down list to select the REF or object type.

 

Size / Scale

Use the spinner controls to specify the size and/or scale (for numeric data types).

 

To compile the object, use the corresponding iconCompile Compile item of the Navigation bar or toolbar.
