Causes the named property 'pname' to be created or modified, as appropriate. Sets the value of the named property 'pname' to 'value'. Also sets the property type of the named property to be set to DX_PROP_BOOLEAN (returned by dt_proptype(3)).

Named properties can be set for any object in the toolkit. The properties are owned by the object, and become invalid if the object is deallocated. The property name may be any valid string (see dt_setstringvalue(3)).

Return Value
