21.4 Add New Generic to Entity

To add a new generic to an entity place the editor cursor on the entity name, right-click and select Refactor > Add generic.

In the Add generic wizard you can tune the name, type, width and the default value of the new generic.

Click Ok to perform the refactoring or Preview to see the changes that are about to be performed in the source code.

Note: An empty generic is added to all the instances of the selected entity along with a FIXME comment which shows up in the Tasks View. See Track Tasks using TODO Markers.

Tip: In the Preview page you can select what changes should be performed.
