Examples of parametric variables and variable formulas in custom components

Here you will find some examples that demonstrate how to use parametric variables and variable formulas to create intelligent custom components that adapt to changes in the model.

Note:

There are some limitations concerning the variable names.

  • In some of the examples below, we reference variables by name. To be able to correctly reference a variable in your formula, variable name must be 19 characters or shorter. Variables with longer names will not work correctly when referenced.

  • Variable names cannot contain mathematical operators (+,-,*,/).

  • You cannot use a mathematical constant, such as PI or e, as a variable name.

The examples are independent from each other.
