General Property List

Overview

Each 3D object in FlexSim supports a set of properties that allow you to configure the behavior of that object. These properties, uniquely identified by their name, can be used in Object Property Tables, as well as by using the Object.setProperty() and Object.getProperty() methods.

While different classes of objects support their own class-specific set of properties, this topic lists the set of valid general purpose FlexSim object property names, and their meanings.

For information on setting individual object properties through FlexSim's interface, see Using Properties.

General

PropertyTypeExplanation
AllGroups Array of strings (read only) The set of groups of which the object is a member, either indirectly (through subgroups) or directly. See also Property Tables: AllGroups.
CenterObjects Array of strings The array of paths, relative to the owning object, to the objects that are connected to the object's center ports.
Classes Array of strings The set of class names of which the object is an instance. See also Property Tables: Classes.
Class String The name of the class of which the object is an instance.
Container Node The reference to the object's container.
Groups Array of strings The set of groups of which the object is a direct member. This does not include the groups that the object is an indirect member of (through groups with subgroups).
InObjects Array of strings The array of paths, relative to the owning object, to the objects that are connected to the object's input ports.
IsSelected Boolean 1 if the object is selected (red-framed), 0 otherwise. See also Property Tables: IsSelected.
Name String The name of the object. See also Property Tables: Name .
Object Node The reference to the object.
OutObjects Array of strings The array of paths, relative to the owning object, to the objects that are connected to the object's output ports.
Shape String The path of the object's shape file.

Visual

Color Array(4) The red/green/blue/alpha color of the object. Each element is in the range [0, 1]. See also Property Tables: Color.
Color.Red Number The red component of the object's color, in the range [0, 1].
Color.Green Number The green component of the object's color, in the range [0, 1].
Color.Blue Number The blue component of the object's color, in the range [0, 1].
Color.Alpha Number The alpha component of the object's color, in the range [0, 1].
Location Array(3) The x/y/z location of the object.
Location.X Number The x location of the object.
Location.Y Number The y location of the object.
Location.Z Number The z location of the object.
NoSelect Boolean 1 if the object should not be clickable in 3D views, 0 otherwise.
Protected Boolean 1 if the object should be "protected" from deletion or manipulation, 0 otherwise.
Rotation Array(3) The x/y/z rotation of the object.
Rotation.X Number The x rotation of the object.
Rotation.Y Number The y rotation of the object.
Rotation.Z Number The z rotation of the object.
ShowContents Boolean 1 if the object's contents are to be shown in 3D views, 0 otherwise.
ShowName Boolean 1 if the object's name is to be shown in 3D views, 0 otherwise.
ShowPorts Boolean 1 if the object's ports are to be shown in 3D views, 0 otherwise.
ShowShape Boolean 1 if the object's shape is to be shown in 3D views, 0 otherwise.
Size Array(3) The x/y/z size of the object.
Size.X Number The x size of the object.
Size.Y Number The y size of the object.
Size.Z Number The z size of the object.
