String Parameter

Definition:

The String parameter identifies a word or phrase.

When the string parameter is used in the Say or the Balloon Help action, it can contain references to agent Attributes or Simulation Properties. For example, if an agent has an attribute called "age" whose value is currently 11, and the String in the Say action is "I am ~age years old", then the voice synthesizer would say, "I am 11 years old."

When the string parameter is used in the WWW Read condition, it is a word or phrase that is used to search the specified web page. The string, in this case, can contain wildcards ("*").

An example of the String parameter (as it is used in the Say action) is shown below:
