Path to source data that will be displayed by a ScreenTable object. There are many data types that the source property may point to:


To display data from a DataTable provide the path to a DataTable’s DataTableRef property. (e.g. .Database.DataTable\DataTableRef)

Child ScreenColumns may have their ColumnNameOrIndex property set to either the names of the columns from the data table or indexes.


To display data from an Array provide the path to a property that contains an array. (e.g. .MyVariable\Value or .DataArray\Array)

Child ScreenColumns may have their ColumnNameOrIndex property may only be set to column names if the names are included as the first row of the data set and IncludeColumnNames property of the ScreenTable has been set to True.

NOTE: The source must be an ARRAY OF ARRAYS where each index contains a row represented by an array of values. 


SourceArray {

0: {John, Doe}

1: {Jane, Doe}



To display data about Objects:

  1. Set the Source property to the path of the desiried object.
  2. Create a ScreenColumn as a child of a ScreenTable.
  3. Set the ScreenColumn’s ColumnNameOrIndex property to the name of the property that should be displayed from all children of the object pointed to by the ScreenTable’s Source property.


formatted string may also be used to set the Source property:

  • IncludeColumnNames = True
    • ColumnName; Item1; Item2; Item3; …
