Used to indicate which class of functions this class supports.


property function as %DeepSee.Datatype.string (XMLPROJECTION = "attribute");
Name of the function.
Property methods: functionDisplayToLogical(), functionGet(), functionIsValid(), functionLogicalToDisplay(), functionLogicalToOdbc(), functionNormalize(), functionSet()
property label as %DeepSee.Datatype.string (XMLPROJECTION = "attribute");
Label to display for the function (used internally).
Property methods: labelDisplayToLogical(), labelGet(), labelIsValid(), labelLogicalToDisplay(), labelLogicalToOdbc(), labelNormalize(), labelSet()
property subqueryKey as %Integer (XMLPROJECTION = "none");
Handle of subquery for this function (if needed).
Property methods: subqueryKeyDisplayToLogical(), subqueryKeyGet(), subqueryKeyIsValid(), subqueryKeyLogicalToDisplay(), subqueryKeyNormalize(), subqueryKeySet(), subqueryKeyXSDToLogical()


classmethod %BuildFunctionMetaData() as %Status
Test if function metadata is in the DeepSeeFunctionGLVN global. If not, put it there.
final classmethod %GetFunctionInfo(pFunction As %String, Output pIsImplemented As %Boolean, Output pArgCount As %Integer, Output pReturns As %String, Output pArgTypes As %List, Output pArgDesc As %List) as %Boolean
Return meta-data for the function pFunction. Returns true if the function exists.
On return, pIsImplemented if the function is implemented.
pArgCount returns the number of required arguments the function expects or "" if this function does not take arguments.
pReturns is the return type.
pArgTypes is a list of argument types for the function.
pArgDesc is a list of argument descriptors for the function.
final classmethod %GetFunctionSignature(pFunction As %String) as %String
Return a string containing the signature for the given function (used for error messages).
method %GetType() as %String
