Setting Status Properties

You can use processing options to set and reset any of the user-designated status properties. The option syntax is similar to the selection syntax for status properties. Specify the processing option ;p followed by the status property indicator. For example, the following command assigns the locked property to all Entity Set objects:

ZOMSet +t Ent ;p l

The ZOMSet service used here is useful in setting status properties. ZOMSet is a special service that has no inherent function of its own but selects the specified objects and obeys the processing options are provided. Contrast the example above with the following example

ZOMList +t Ent ;p l

that also assigns the locked property to all EntitySet objects, but then lists all of the selected objects.

You can reset a status property by using the exclamation point (!). For example

ZOMSet +t Ent ;p l!

removes the locked property from all EntitySet objects (i.e., makes the objects not locked).
