Significance of px, py, and pz
I was wondering what is the significance of the prefixes px, py, and pz are exactly? I see many columns in the database use these prefixes, and I am assuming they are for classification purposes. I was wondering what each means?

This Hungarian-style notation is not limited to database columns. These prefixes are used to identify Pega-provided artifacts (properties, data transforms, data pages, harnesses and sections, etc.). These prefixes are reserved for Pega, so you cannot create unique artifacts using any of these three prefixes.
In general terms, artifacts prefaced with py are Read/Write so can be overridden in your application. For example, you can use the .pyWorkPhone property in your application and present it on a UI screen for a user to update. You can also extend these artifacts by creating copies of them in your application.
In these same general terms, artifacts prefaced px and pz are Read Only - and cannot be overridden or extended by your application. The difference between these two artifacts (px and pz) is that artifacts prefaced with px are typically used to support your application. For example, when creating properties, you can specify the UI control type such as pxTextInput or pxDropdown. Artifacts prefaced with pz support (Pega) internal system processing.
I have a requirement. The Take Action values (the flow action description) size needs to be changed. When i checked it referred to pzActionLabelDisplay property. The display of the the value of this property needs to be changed. How can this be achieved.
Sorry, the pzActionLabelDisplay is a control format which displays the Take Action/ FlowAction name. The value (font size) that displays need to be changed. If i change the format to formatted text, the value does not appear itself. So what has to be done.
