assignment statement:  A line in a query or script that changes the value of a style drawing variable.  Example: size = 5.  That statement changes the value of the size variable to 5.  (The size variable controls the size at which node elements are drawn).  Assignment statements may be used in vector display and several other processes that let you assign drawing styles by query.
