User=defined Properties

Properties can be created and added to objects dynamically at runtime, either from within a custom Action or in response to a hook. For instance, a custom text field could be added to all Shapes when they are created in response to the object_created hook:

def add_character_name_prop(shape):
	if shape.isType("Shape"):
		if not shape.property("character_name"):
			prop = Property("character_name", "Character Name", "", {})
			shape.addProperty(prop)

import hook
hook.add("object_created", add_character_name_prop)
