Name-value pairs that indicate how an object behaves or appears. For example, a Name property might contain a name that identifies the object to other objects, while a Background Color property defines a background color for the object.
In Entity-Relationship modeling, an attribute or relationship. Attribute is an In Entity-Relationship modeling, an identifiable characteristic of an entity. For example, lastName can be an attribute of an Employee entity. An attribute typically corresponds to a column in a database table. A column-In a relational database, is the dimension of a table that holds values for a particular attribute. For example, a table that contains employee records might have a column titled LAST_NAME that contains the values for each employee's last name.
An item of data associated with an object. Properties control some of the object's behavior.
An Apple event object that defines some characteristic of another Apple event object, such as its font or point size, that can be uniquely identified by a constant. The definition of each object class in the Apple Event Registry: Standard Suites lists the constants and class IDs for properties of Apple event objects belonging to that object class. For example, the constants pName and pBounds identify the name and boundary properties of Apple event objects that belong to the object class cWindow. The pName property of a specific window is defined by an Apple event object of object class cProperty, such as the word "MyWindow," which defines the name of the window. An Apple event object can contain only one of each of its properties, whereas it can contain many elements of the same element class. See also Apple event object, container, element classes.
An initial setting or characteristic of a bean, for example, a name, font, text, or positional characteristic.
characteristic quality of a substance, as determined by observation or by its effect on other substances; properties that are useful in identifying substances are called characteristic properties. (see chemical property, physical property, extensive property, intensive property)

A display or behavioral attribute assigned to one or more application objects. Properties can be inherited from a repository, set manually using the Properties window in the screen editor, or set programmatically using the properties API. Examples of properties are an object's name, widget type, and location on a screen.
any attribute, e.g. one property of a square is that all sides are equal.
A characteristic that distinguishes one substance from another.
A ·property· is an object identifiable thanks to a qualified name. Properties are stored in a data set. Each property is defined with a scope that represents its accessibility. There are two types of properties : simple properties (that have a single value) composite properties

For the purposes of the Archives Act 1983, property is derived from delivery (ie physical delivery) coupled with an intention on the part of the parties that property in the item should pass with delivery of it to the Commonwealth. Intentions as to ownership will often be implied rather than expressed. In such cases, the intention needs to be objectively inferred. The question of ownership of any particular record must be determined having regard to all relevant facts and circumstances relating to that record at the time the question of ownership arises. See also Commonwealth record.
In J. P. Moreland, "an entity; redness, hardness, wisdom, triangularity, or painfulness. A property has at least four characteristics which distinguish it from a substance" . . . . A property is universal, immutable, can be had by more than one object, and does not have causal power ( Scaling the Secular City, 79).
A set of characteristics of an object.
An attribute of a programmable object. Properties define characteristics such as size and color. Compare with method, a way to tell a programmable object to perform an action.
(UML) See attribute. class.php
Attribute of an object. SWI-Prolog defines various *_property predicates to query the status of predicates, clauses. etc.
An attribute that is defined. For example, the properties of a field include its data type, physical characteristics such as length, and whether it is required or optional.
An attribute or value holding some information relating to the state of a resource or other entity. For example data service resources have properties which hold information on the data resource they expose, the activities they can execute and the status of any requests currently being executed. A client-service connection may have properties that hold the timeout for client connections and security-related configuration information.
A named attribute of an object. Properties define object characteristics such as size, color, and screen location, or the state of an object, such as enabled or disabled.
A named attribute of an object. Properties define object characteristics, such as size and name, or the state of an object, such as enabled or disabled. Properties can be set for tables, columns, indexes, constraints, keys, and relationships.
details, attribute A property is an attribute of an object that may be displayed in a column of a table or HGrid or in a field on an object page. No. Use the term "attribute" in developer and administrator documentation. Otherwise, use the general term "details", and refer to individual attributes by their column headers or field labels.

An attribute common to all instances of a MAPI object type. Examples of mailbox object properties are owner name and out-of-office state. MAPI properties are included as part of the message objects or other objects they describe, and they derive from the IMAPIProp interface. Each property is a structure that consists of identifier, data type, and value.
A specific attribute with defined meaning that may be used to describe other resources. A property plus the value of that property for a specific resource is a statement about that resource. A property may define its permitted values as well as the types of resources that may be described with this property.
Characteristics of objects. May be directly or indirectly observable. Properties could includecolor, shape, size, pattern, living-nonliving, sequence, behavior, rate, position, motion, scale, weight, mass, volume, density.
In Visual Basic, a named attribute of an object. For example, every Toolbox object has a Name property. Properties can be set by changing them in the Properties window at design time or by program statements at run time. For example, I might change the Name property of a form Form1 with the statement: Form1.Name = "MyFormName" VB 6 uses Property Get, Property Set and Property Let statements to manipulate properties of objects. This syntax has been completely overhauled in VB.NET. The Get and Set syntax isn't necessary and Let isn't supported at all.
any characteristic or attribute of an object or substance
In an object-oriented environment, an object's properties describe the characteristics of that object. For instance, an object's foreground color would be a property for a text object.
In crossvision Information Integrator, this is a generalized term for Object Property and Datatype Property. Properties can be used in an ontology to state relationships between classes or from classes to data types. In F-Logic terminology, properties are called relation attributes or methods.
An attribute or characteristic of an object. Properties can define the appearance of an object (such as color) or what happens when the user performs an action on the object (such as click).
In Entity-Relationship modeling, an attribute or relationship. See also "attribute"; "relationship".
A named value denoting a characteristic of an element. A property has semantic impact. Certain properties are predefined in the UML; others may be user defined. Synonym: property [OMA]. See tagged value.
An attribute of an object. A cookie may have Pink Frosting, or White Frosting, so, in this case, the cookie would have a FrostingType property.
Part of an object. A property has a name and a value. The name is a string. The value can a primitive, method, or object reference. It is often stated that a property holds an object - this is shorthand for saying the property holds a reference to the object, as properties cannot directly hold the objects themselves. In the case of the property holding an object, there is a distinction between the property's value and the object due to the nature of object references - the property's value can be changed when it's set to another value, but this does not modify the previously referred object in any way.
A name/value pair that describes a unit of data for a class. Property values must have a valid Managed Object Format (MOF) data type. Also see referenceproperty.
A quality, such as red or heavy, that can belong to particular objects.

An attribute of an object that can be retrieved and (sometimes) set. For example, the index property of a table can be set to the name of a one or more columns in the table.
The stylistic features of an object. (See also Attribute.)
A discrete, named attribute of a JavaBeans component that determines its appearance and behavior.
A "property" is a piece of information about an element, for example structural information (e.g., it is item number 7 in a list, or plain text) or presentation information (e.g., that it is marked as bold, its font size is 14). In XML and HTML, properties of an element include the type of the element (e.g., IMG or DL), the values of its attributes, and information associated by means of a style sheet. In a database, properties of a particular element may include values of the entry, and acceptable data types for that entry.
The smallest unit of storage in the Web Storage System. It has a name, a datatype, and other attributes. In the context of a form, properties are often called fields. In the context of a view, properties are often called columns.
"In object-oriented design, either an attribute or a relationship."
A property is an attribute of an object which can be set or left at its default value. Various properties are whether or not to “ suppress” an object, or its border properties and font properties.
A characteristic or parameter of a class of objects or devices. For example, properties of Microsoft Word files include Size, Created, and Characters. See also: property cache; property value; tag
The features and characteristics of an object and the values are called attributes.
In philosophy, mathematics, and logic, a property is an attribute of an object; thus a red object is said to have the property of redness. The property may be considered a form of object in its own right, able to possess other properties. Properties are therefore subject to the Russell's paradox/Grelling-Nelson paradox.
In some object-oriented programming languages, a property is a special sort of class member, intermediate between a field (or data member) and a method. You read and write a property just as you read and write a field, but this is (usually) translated to get and set method calls. The field-like syntax is easier to read and write than lots of method calls, yet the interposition of method calls allows for data validation, active updating (as of GUI visuals), and/or read-only 'fields'.
