Have there been any DataGroup Definition Editor changes in the CONNECT Edition?
Yes, following are changes that have made to the Definition Editor in CONNECT Edition:
The V8i "DataGroup Definition Editor" has been renamed to "Definition Editor" and is accessed from the Ribbon Bar using File (tab) > Dataset Tools > Definition Editor.
Once opened, the dialog box name wil linclude the active dataset name. For example, when using the BuildingTemplate_US dataset, the Definition Editor dialog will read "Definition Editor for BuildingTemplate_US".
A new right-click option "Define Order" on items selected in the Definition Editor properties list box (right panel) opens the "Order" dialog that lists all properties assigned to the selected DataGroup definition. Controls are provided that allow you to select and re-order the definition properties (or whole property groups). Once saved, the new property order applies to tools and dialogs which use the definition.
For Decimal data type properties, a new Preferred Units dialog allows you to define the units that are displayed for the selected property in tools and utilities which use the property. The preferred Units dialog is accessed in the Definition Editor properties list box by clicking in the selected property's Unit value field.
