A prototype is a user defined group of graphic components which have different properties. The graphic effects of prototype can be changed based on the value of the properties of the prototype.
A prototype is created using the prototype editor in Service Manager. The graphic behavior of a prototype associated with any event can be configured using this editor. Prototypes are also stored in the server side, thus clients will be able to select prototypes by drag & drop from the prototypes panel in any Service Manager client.
