The Edit Block pane allows you to edit the following tabs:
This provides basic information about the Block, as entered on its creation:
System Name - The system name of the Block. There is no functional requirement for a type letter in the System Name of a Block, but by convention we use 'B' for 'Block'. The default implementation is not system-specific, so a system letter of 'I' is appropriate. This leads to system names like "IB201".
User Name - The user name of the Block. The user name of a Block created here may be set to any text. The user name for a Block created by Layout Editor is set by Layout Editor and should not be changed.
Comment - You may enter any text in this field that will help you distinguish this Block from other Blocks, or provide useful notes about its use.
This tab allows you to assign a Sensor to the Block to change the occupancy state. It also allows certain information about the Sensor to be changed:
Sensor Select the Sensor from the drop down list that will be associated with this Block.
Describe the geometry of the Block using the fields shown.
This is an information field, showing where you have the Block displayed on a Panel:
