Property references in expressions

A property reference identifies a property (or a part of an aggregate property) that is a source or destination for a value:

  • A source property reference, used in expressions, identifies a value.
  • A target property reference identifies the destination for a value (the system assigns the value to that destination property).

The syntax used in such references is sometimes called dot notation. You can use this syntax in many methods and rules, including:

  • Expressions
  • Property-Set method
  • HTML form ( Rule-Obj-HTML rule type)
  • Correspondence form
  • Data Transform form
  • Fragments ( Rule-HTML-Fragment and Rule-Corr-Fragment )
