The Properties tab in the Component Editor displays all of the properties defined for the open component. If the component is “live” (indicated by a red dot), the Properties tab shows two columns of property values: Configured Value and Live Value. (Otherwise, it displays the Configured Value column only.) The configured value is the value specified by the component’s properties file; the live value is the current value, which may be different from the configured value. If you want to view read-only properties, select the Includeread-onlyproperties checkbox. Read-only properties appear grayed-out to indicate that they are unavailable for editing.

Note: Not all component properties appear by default in the Component Editor. Certain “expert level” properties are visible only if you choose Tools > Preferences from the ACC window and select the Showexpert-levelinformation checkbox in the Edit Preferences dialog box.
