Edit 2d-symbol of created object

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi!

I'm trying to create my own library object based on a morph cube. It's just a very simple object that should be a displayed as a cube in 3D and elevation but in plan I want it to show as a lamp symbol.

How do I edit the symbol visible in plan?

You are using the parameters incorrectly.

You need to be checking for the value of the parameter.

For a boolean it is 1 or 0 (on or off).

For a text parameter you need to be using the value typed into that text parameter - in tour case "SB"

For the boolean, you do not actually have to put the value, you can just write "IF [parameter] then". Using this same notation, you can utilise it within sums, usually to decide whether or not to add a value.
