Use the revSetStackFileProfile command to change property settings throughout a stack file to a different set of stored settings.


The profileName specifies which profile to use.

The stackName is the short name of an open stack. If you don't specify a stack, the stack file that the topStack belongs to is changed.

Note: Although the revSetStackFileProfilecommand changes a stack file, you specify a stack name, not a file name.


A profile is a set of property settings for an object. You create a profile for an object, and give it a name, using the Property Profiles pane in the object's property inspector. When you change that object to use a profile, the properties you specified in the profile are changed to the settings you specified. This helps you quickly switch the appearance and behavior of the object without needing to set its properties individually.

The revSetStackFileProfile command changes the current profile of the specified stack, all the stacks in the same stack file, and all the objects in all these stacks. If an object does not have a profile with the specified profileName, the object's properties are not changed.

Important! The revSetStackFileProfilecommand is part of the Profile library. To ensure that the command works in a standalone application, in the Profiles section on the General screen of the Standalone Application Settings window, make sure you choose to include profiles in your application.
