Attributes

Unit

Optional string. Represents a unit of measure. The default is DP. For details about DP, see Units of measure.

F

If the attribute is not present, the element's formula is a simple constant, for example, <element>5</element>.

Err

Optional string. Indicates that the formula evaluates to an error. The value of Err is the current value (an error message string); the value of the element is the last valid value.
