You can group related component property controls on the Component Settings tab of the Edit Component Properties dialog box.
You can add properties to groups in two ways.
- Create a group element and assign properties to the group:
Specify a name in the group field of each property you want to group.
- Right-click the properties extension and click New -> Group.
- Specify a name and ID for the new group.
- Specify the new group ID in the group field of each property you want to group.
The Composite Application Editor will check to see if the string references a group ID; if not, it uses the string as the group name on the Component Settings tab.
In the Composite Application Editor, on the Component Settings tab of the Edit Component Properties dialog box, the group name appears before the set of properties assigned to that group. Any properties that have not been assigned a group appear after any grouped properties.
