question I guess for Dan Eng or Samir Haque:
In OpenRoads Designer Update 5 it's possible to define Propeties in Item Type usin Expression and to work with parent element and symbol providers for Named Expressions.
It's noted that this version of ORD is based on MicroStation CE Update 10, but I do not see such functionality available in U10 or U11.
Are expressions in Item Types properties planned to be an exclusive feature of ORD or they are planned to be included in MicroStation also?
Hi Jan, EC Expressions will soon be also available in MicroStation CONNECT Edition.

thanks for quick reaction.
I played a bit with them in ORD and this feature is really promissing, so I am looking forward to have them in MicroStation also :-)

Are you sure they're not included in Microstation as well?
I've started using them in ORD, using information provided in the Microstation help file.

Surprisingly it's not ... or better to say it's included but as hidden feature and has to be unlocked for testing. And it's not mentioned in MicroStation help file also.
Funny enough Expressions are detailed in the Microstation or Power Platform help of ORD, hmm...
