How To Work On Properties DataSources

The property DS is a utility DS which can store data. It can also be used as an “input field”. All we need to do is to create a field and parameterize it. If this property DS is used in the context of a composite DS, it can be very useful as a control mechanism. When used in this fashion, the input value is not kept permanently, but just in runtime.

Steps taken:

  1. Create a Properties Datasource (Blank_Properties.ds).
  2. In the “Define Properties Datasource” page, add the following column:Column Name=Text, Type=String, Value=${Enter Your Text}

Upon loading data, it will display the text that you have entered in the output.
