OutParameters property

Home –> Reference –> Parent Shape –> Out Parameters


This is for passing parameters from Dialogs to the calling Parent Process.

It is also possible to use the Update Parent Process shape in the Dialog itself to update Process Variables in the parent process, but this way it is simpler to understand what the parent process expects back from the child dialog, especially when the calling process could be any or it is not known when designing the Dialog.

Click the ellipsis button to open the config window:


Field Name / Button Definition
Name This is the name of the Process Variable (aka Custom Attribute) to be updated in the current Process
Do not use this format ${ProcessVariable1}, use just the name
Dialog Variable This is the name of the Dialog Variable whose value we want to assign to our process variable
Do not use this format ${DialogVariable1}, use just the name
