Sets the result attribute to the character whose numeric code was contained in the source code attribute (or the entered integer).

This can be used when the numeric Unicode code of any character (from Basic Multilingual Plane) is available, but the actual Unicode character is desired. For example, if the source attribute had the value 65487 (U+FFCF), a half-width Hangul letter ᅬ character would be placed in the resulting string.



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.
