Use the Signature Editor to create or modify component signatures. Signatures of Uniface components are automatically generated during compilation. Signatures of non-Uniface components can be created or imported.
- To start the Signature Editor, choose .
- In the Open Signature dialog, choose an existing signature or enter the Name of a non-Uniface component for which you want to create a signature.
Optionally, choose one or more
implementation types and click OK. For more information, see Define a Component Implementation.
If you do not choose an implementation, a modeled component is created. You can define an implementation for a modeled component in the Signature Editor at a later stage.
The signature details of the new component now appear in the Signature Editor.
If the component is to be used for COM or
Java call-in, click Properties to define additional signature
Double-click a specific implementation type to set its properties. For information on specific properties, press F1.
- If the signature describes a non-Uniface component for call-out, you may need to define the component operations and its parameters. For more information, see Define Component Operations of a Signature and Define Operation Parameters in a Signature.
Compile the signature. Do any of the
- Choose .
- Close a new signature you have just created.
- Close a signature you have modified, and open another component signature.
- Add or modify operations or parameters, or properties of operations or parameters. This includes changes to operation and parameter properties in secondary windows.
- Modify the communication default.
