Associated Components

No other components interact with this component.


There are no configurable settings for this component.


When a macro component uses Selector Prototype Component as its prototype, Target Designer displays the components that are included in the macro component on the Components tab, each next to an associated checkbox. Any listed component can be excluded from the target configuration if its checkbox is cleared before the first dependency check is run. Using Selector Prototype Component as the prototype for a macro component makes it easier for the author to reduce the footprint of the target run-time image.

Components that are shown in italics in Target Designer on the Components tab are already enabled in the target configuration. If the checkbox for an included component is cleared after the first dependency check, the component must be manually removed from the configuration or disabled.
