Allow pins override properties

Hi,

Finally got around to updating FloWorks to use kinetic tracked variables for stuff like fluid content. One big plus for us would be if we can stop overriding the statistics panels and "Pin to dashboard" buttons. However, there is one small issue (or actually, two): the pin button has some things like the line type hardcoded into the tree - see

VIEW:/standardviews/modelingutilities/QuickProperties>variables/propertiesPanels/Statistics/Statistics/ContentPanel/Pin>variables/displayTypes/Content vs Time>variables/timeplotSettings/series/default/style

It would be great if I could just override that single value, rather than the current way of adding custom "Flow Content vs Time" options and hiding yours, which tends to break regularly as you release updates.

One simple solution that I could think of, was allow such nodes to be FlexScript and if they are, use the evaluated value instead of the double value. This or a similar feature would be really really appreciated for 19.0

Of course if you have an alternative solution (maybe you are planning on changing this to a chart template that will automatically recognize the appropriate type for a tracked variable depending on whether it's categorical, level or kinetic) I'd be happy to hear about it!

I have a plan to update the pin buttons, so that all pin buttons will pin Chart Template objects. That will be a big update. I will consider your case as I set up the new system.

Thanks, good to hear! I'll patch the current approach to keep it working for 19.0 then.
