Calculated entity properties - how to find out a name of the current entit?



is it possible to create a new visible read-only calculated property of entity that will return at each entity e.g. a name of the corresponding archive table

  • e.g. “ARC_”+%TableName% ?

Can I find out in the called method what is the current entity?
It seems that the methods usable for “Get Script Method” are without any parameters.





Hello Lada,

Yes, it is possible.

  1. Create a new property in class where you like to have it and edit it.
  2. On the General tab, fill out a name and select the Read-only checkbox.
  3. Click the button next to the Get Script Method box. - (The names of a script and a method where the method will be implemented will be filled out.)
  4. Click Edit Script below. The following message might occur: Script xxx has not been found. Do you want to create a new script in…? - Click OK.
  5. Finally, add the script body that might look like this (example):

function GetMyCalculatedProperty()
return (‘Prefix’+Instance.Name);

See the “Instance” keyword in the code - it represents the object for which the method is called. It can be entity, attribute etc. - according to the class where it is defined.
