Preparing:

  • get selected objects
  • pick first one
  • get class id
  • get all attributes
  • loop for all attributes
  • check for type EXPRESSION

Interesting:

  • GET_EXPR_TEXT for instance attribute (objid)
  • show EDITBOX for user to change expression
  • SET_EXPR_TEXT with new expression "text" from EDITBOX
