Concatenates the values of any number of attributes, user parameters and/or constants, and stores the result in a new attribute.

Usage Notes

  • If you require setting more than one attribute, consider using the AttributeManager.
  • The ExpressionEvaluator calculates numeric expressions, which can be embedded within string expressions. Note that in string expressions, leading and trailing white spaces are preserved, whereas in a numeric context, such as within ExpressionEvaluator, leading and trailing white spaces are ignored.

Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.

Defining Values

There are several ways to define a value for use in a Transformer. The simplest is to simply type in a value or string, which can include functions of various types such as attribute references, math and string functions, and workspace parameters. There are a number of tools and shortcuts that can assist in constructing values, generally available from the drop-down context menu adjacent to the value field.

Dialog Options - Tables

Transformers with table-style parameters have additional tools for populating and manipulating values.
