MDrivenDesignerPropertyInspectorHints

This page is fetched by the MDriven Designer to provide additional information per property in the Property inspector.

Note to authors: Case-insensitive - the key must start with #, and the key is shown in MDrivenDesigner. Unless the value is found below, it will not render any links or markup correctly, so use plain text.

#Class.Prop Description
#aaa.bbb Longish description without markup
#attribute.codecomment A short documentation is available for your usage
#attribute.HasUserCode When used in MDriven Framework, this flag set will route all access through the code accessor that has partial methods implementation that can be implemented by you.
#attribute.SetterVisibility Attributes are default public - both set and get - this property allows you to change the visibility of the set operator
#attribute.column name This is the name the column in the database will get - by default it is the same as the attribute - this is achieved by stating <Name>
#attribute.defaultDBValue When attributes are added to classes that already have data in a database - and if this attribute does not allow null - then we need to supply what default value existing rows should have. Common for state attributes: 'SomeState' See also: DefaultDBValue
#attribute.Delayed Fetch If set to True, the attribute's data will not be fetched at once with the rest of the object's attributes. It will only be fetched on explicit use. Usually used BLOB och Image attributes.
#attribute.FormerNames Used during the evolution of the database. If a former name is specified, data will be migrated to the new name from the specified old name.
#association.derived A derived association is like a calculated relation between classes. You enter the DerivationOcl for one or both ends of the association, as wanted. It is always updated using a subscription to changes
#associationend.derivationocl An OCL statement that "calculates" the resulting item or collection for the association
#associationend.aggregation This sets how "tight" in a business sense a class is to another. Note that if you set Composite, deleting the owning class object deletes the owned object
#associationend.effectivename This is the used name. It's either the default name or the specifically set name in "Name"
#associationend.ordering Designates as an ordered or unordered collection of objects in the association. This is not to be confused with the orderBy OCL operator.
#associationend.embed Controls where database keys are placed. If true, a key attribute will be placed in the "begin end" of the association pointing to this class object id
#associationend.saveaction Describes how the first value is set and if it can change. None: No special action. Freeze: Save the first time, changes are not allowed. DbAssign: It's up to the database engine to maintain the association
#attribute.attributemode Derived uses OCL to calculate value. DerivedSettable uses EAL to reverse-derive the value from for example a string. See "Derived Settable" in the wiki.
#attribute.derivationocl OCL to calculate the attribute's value. See "Derived Settable" in the wiki.
#attribute.derivationoclset EAL to reverse-derive the value from for example a string. See "Derived Settable" in the wiki.
#attribute.presentationunit UI engines typically use this to render the unit of measure in the label like Presentation(Kg)
