Class Hirarchy:

OcaRootOcaAgentOcaRamper

class OcaRamper : OcaAgent

Agent that gradually changes a property setting from one value to another. Works on a scalar numeric or boolean property of a specified object. Does not work for array, list, map, struct, or string properties. Contains timer features to allow ramps to start immediately or at any time in the future. This is a weakly typed class. All ramping parameters are specified as a OcaFloat64 numbers.

  • For unsigned integer targets, the ramping parameters are coerced to

OcaUint64 before comparing.

  • For signed integer targets, the ramping parameters are coerced to

OcaInt64 before comparing.

  • For boolean values, the the ramping parameters are coerced to

OcaUint8. True is assigned the value One, False is assigned the value Zero.
