Viewing the property tree

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

The Property Tree tab displays a tree grid of all properties available for use in an application. Access this tab from the Classes and Properties landing page by clicking Configure Data Model Classes & Properties Property Tree .

You can filter the list of properties displayed by clicking Advanced View and specifying the conditions that you want to match. You can enter a text string in the Contains field to search for matches in the names (not the descriptions) of properties that match the other conditions you have set.

The resulting list of properties contains the following information. Click a column header to sort on that column.

Field Description
Property The name of the property. Click the property to open its rule form to review or modify its custom control setting. To open the specification of the HTML source for the custom control itself, click its displayed name in the Control column.

Hover over a property name to display a panel with details about the property's persistence and the rules it references. Within that pop-up, click the names of the rules to open their corresponding forms for editing (for example, the property or the class group).

Description The property description.
Applies to The application to which the property applies. Click to open the class rule for editing.
Type The type of property.
Control The control to use to display the property. Click to open the specification of the HTML source for the custom control itself.

Displays "Default" unless the developer has specified a different control for this property, in which case the field displays the name of that control rule. Because the field width may truncate the name in the column, the Tooltip also displays the name.

Ruleset The ruleset version to which the property belongs. Click to open the RuleSet for editing.
Source The property source:
  • The Blue square icon indicates that the property is used in the current applications.
  • The Gray square icon indicates that the property is not used in the current applications.
  • The Pyramid icon with a blue base indicates that the property is inherited from parent applications.
  • The Pyramid icon with a blue top indicates that the property is defined in the current application.
Declare Expressions Hover to display a panel with details about the property's persistence and the rules that it references. Click the expression to open it for editing or click Define Expression to create a Declare Expression.
