Display attributes

Attributes are used to describe the different functionalities of a fixture type. Attributes are what is actually controlled. Attributes are organized to features. Every fixture has at least one attribute, but it can have several attributes. A generic dimmer fixture type typically has only one attribute – Dimmer – while an advanced moving light may have 30+ different attributes.

Features and feature groups are used to define the logical grouping of attributes. For example, Pan and Tilt attributes are to be grouped together in the feature "PanTilt" and in the feature group "Position".

The defined attributes, feature groups and activation groups are displayed here.
