I’m creating a number of similar objects with different properties. Noting how one can use a table to create such a list, which I’ve done successfully, I have one question:
Can one use a table to set up either/or properties? Let’s say I have a list of chemicals, and I want them to be either alkaline or acidic, can I set this in that table as well?
So far it seems I can easily set up text and number properties this way, but I’ve yet to be able to set an either/or property like this. It could be an issue with finding the correct syntax, or possibly not something that can be done via tables.
Example: (and not a good one from a chemistry standpoint, and should likely be a numerical property…but that’s besides the point )
If I wanted to create a table of objects that can be “acidic or alkaline”, as an either or property so I can check an object to see if it’s either acidic or alkaline, and skip having a text-based property ‘if the PH of Blarg is “acidic”’
The Table of Stuff and Things chemical PH milk of magnesia alkaline hydrochloric acid acidic
Obviously, that example above throws errors, as “PH” expects to be a numerical or string property.
Sort of self solved:
I forgot about custom “kinds of value”.
I created this:
PH is a kind of value. The PHs are acidic, neutral, and alkaline.
And then in my table, I have a heading for chemicals and PH.
And now I can set the PH for each object in the PH column without using a sting value.
However, I’d still love to know if there is a way to set either/or values for possible future use, as this still requires me to query the “if the PH of Blarg is acidic” instead of “if Blarg is acidic”, which is fine for me as I really needed 3 possible values, but would be annoying if I only needed 2
