Class Configuration

You can configure a class and create objects from the class using the Class and Object dialog boxes.  You can also use CIMEdit.

Before you begin, you should be familiar with your object requirements. Determine how the class will be applied and the possible range of values for the objects created from the class. You can also use Composite Classes to facilitate the creation of other classes and objects.

Important: You can modify a class dynamically and you can also delete a class dynamically if there are no references to the class or no object instances of that class with composite references to the class.  

What you configure for the class depends on the purpose for the class. In general, once you have mapped out a plan you can configure the options for the class in any order.

Before you configure a class, you should be familiar with how to configure each of the features in a CIMPLICITY application.
