Editor for Flag Attributes

This editor is used to show, edit or attributes which represents a flag value. The flags can be expressed either as a numeric value (mostly such attributes are actually bit fields...) or as a string containing several flag characters. An example is the Editor for the userAccountControl attribute in Active Directory environments:

Editor for Bit Flag Attributes: userAccountControl

In the top area of this dialog, you see the distinguished name and type icon for the object whose attribute your are editing. In the line beneath, the attribute name is shown. All the flag values which are activated are marked in red color.

There are some other bitflag editors: The Bitflag value editors are used whenever LEX has valid schema information and detects the following official attribute names:

Editor for Bit Flag Attributes: dsHeuristics
