Parameter file "CharacteristicClasses"


The →characteristic classes that are available in infra CONVERT are defined in the parameter file “CharacteristicClasses.json”. More specifically: these definitions are loaded when a new →project is created and saved in the project file. This means that it is not possible to later change the class definitions for a project.

Important Each class definition has parameters that cannot be changed. If a parameter is missing or faulty, then characteristics assigned to the corresponding class will no longer be recognized by the automatic stamp function. The same is, of course, true for missing definitions.

If you need additional classes, you can append definitions. You are welcome to tell us your wishes, as we are interested in offering the widest possible selection of classes.

During installation, the parameter file CharacteristicClasses is saved at the following location:

%ProgramData%\ELIAS GmbH\infra-convert\JsonData\CharacteristicClasses.json

If another parameter file is to be loaded when starting the program, this can be specified in the startup parameter file (see Configuration and Import > Startup parameter file > Parameter file for characteristic classes).

Tip For more comfortable working, you can use a text editor with extended functions, e.g. syntax and error highlighting, instead of the on-board Windows “editor”. Examples are the free programs Visual Studio Code from Microsoft and Notepad++.
