To edit parameter definitions

  • Select the Parameters tab in the properties dialog box and select the Value definition tab.

NOTE: The input Parameter value and Default value are affected by the parameter value definition. You can see this on the one hand, through dynamic customization of the controls for selecting a parameter value or default value and the dynamic customization of selectable values themselves on the other. It is therefore recommended, you edit these values last.
