To Add a Directive to a Configuration Settings Block

  1. Open an existing or create a new configuration settings block.

  2. On the Configuration tab, click the Add ( + ) icon and select Add Directive.

    The Modify Directive dialog opens.

    The following conditional expression statements are supported:

    %include (replaces the Linked Blocks functionality of ProjectWise V8 XM Edition)






    These directives operate exactly as they do in MicroStation.

  3. Click Add.

    The Edit Value dialog opens.

    The following data types can be used in a directive declaration:

    • String
    • Configuration Settings Block
    • Configuration Settings Block By Mask
    • ProjectWise Document
    • ProjectWise Folder

    To use Configuration Settings Block By Mask, the mask is a wild card expression and any configuration settings block that matches that expression will be included. The Configuration Settings Block Mask will scan for configuration settings blocks in all levels; currently there is no way to limit the mask to a certain level.

    When testing for ProjectWise objects the directive must be broken up in separate lines to create the conditional statement, as shown below:

  4. When finished, click OK in the Modify Directive dialog.
