Action Data Type


The attribute data type of 'action' represents a string that can be used as an action; under the hood, Tinderbox caches the compiled action so it does not have to constantly re-parse the same expression. Thus these attributes should contain a string [sic] of valid Tinderbox action code.

Some pre-existing system attributes, such as OnAdd and Rule have been re-classed from 'string' to 'action' type.

This data type is not available for user attributes - use 'string' instead.

The default value is an empty string.
