Creating a component template
You can create a component template, which, at its most basic, is the definition of the parts that make up a component.
Using this procedure, you can create a component template and specify its parts, or you can define an empty component template with no component parts and later add parts during the editing process. To more fully develop the component definition, including its signature and compliance rules, you must edit the component.
To create a component template
- Open the Component Templates folder, right-click a component templates folder, and select New > Component Template from the pop-up menu. The Create New Component Template wizard opens.
- Define the component template on the wizard panels, as described in the following topics:
- Click Finish after completing the last step of the wizard.
A dialog box prompts you to edit the component template.
- Click OK to begin editing the component template. To save the component template without editing it, click No.
