Object Reference

An Object Reference represents an installation object in a component. It is only a reference, not the real object; if you delete the reference, the real object is not affected.


The following attributes and options are available.

Attribute Description
Name Displays the installation name of the object. You can select a different object by clicking the ... (browse) button to open the Select Installation Object dialog box.
Type Displays the type of the referenced object.
Location Displays the location of the referenced object, usually its installation path.
Alias Displays the internal name of the installation object; for most objects, this is the alias rather than the object's installation name.
Go to target object Click this button to go to the project page that contains the target object, and then select that object.
