New Attribute Block

New Attribute Block

Where Is It?

The new attribute block is located in the Categories drawer of the Blawx toolbox.

What Does It Do?

The new attribute block is used to add an attribute to a category.

Technical Details

The new attribute block must be placed inside a category attribute block, and applies to the category named in the category attribute block. It requires an attribute name, which must begin with a lowercase letter and not include spaces. It also requires a data type, which must be one of the datatype blocks in the Data Types drawer of the Blawx toolbox, or a category.


Note that if you specify a data type, and not a category, your attribute selector blocks for that attribute will only accept the right type of value, and variables. If you choose a category as the data type, your attribute selector blocks will accept any object, or variables.

Attribute names should be unique, even as between different categories.
