Use the revProfile property to switch sets of property values on the fly.

Value:

The revProfile of an object is the name of one of the object's profiles.

Comments:

When you change the value of a property for an object, the value is stored in the object's current profile. If you later switch back to that profile, the stored values are restored. For example, if you create a profile named "Fluffy" for a button, then set the button's backgroundColor property to "pink", that setting of the backgroundColor property is stored with the Fluffy profile. If you later set the button's profile to "Fluffy", the pink color is restored.

If the profileName does not exist for the object, setting the profile either causes an error or creates a new profile with that name for the object. You change this setting in the "Property Profiles" pane of the Preferences window.

(The revProfile property is implemented as a custom property, part of the "cRevGeneral" custom property set. For this reason, you can also refer to it using the custom property set notation, as cRevGeneral["profile"].)

Important! The revProfile property is part of the Profile library. To ensure that the property 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.

Note: When included in a standalone application, the Profile library is implemented as a hidden group and made available when the group receives its first openBackground message. During the first part of the applicati startup process, before this message is sent, the revProfile property is not yet available. This may affect attempts to use this property in startup, preOpenStack, openStack, or preOpenCard hand in the main stack. Once the application has finished starting up, the library is available and the revProfile property can be used in any handler.
