Property methods: childrenBuildValueArray(), childrenCollectionToDisplay(), childrenCollectionToOdbc(), childrenDisplayToCollection(), childrenGet(), childrenGetObject(), childrenGetObjectId(), childrenGetSwizzled(), childrenIsValid(), childrenOdbcToCollection(), childrenSet(), childrenSetObject(), childrenSetObjectId()
property context as Node;
The input context for the node (empty = global)
Property methods: contextGet(), contextGetSwizzled(), contextIsValid(), contextNewObject(), contextSet()
property isUnary as %Boolean;
Indicates a Unary Operation
Property methods: isUnaryDisplayToLogical(), isUnaryGet(), isUnaryIsValid(), isUnaryLogicalToDisplay(), isUnaryNormalize(), isUnarySet()
property literalType as %String;
Indicates the type of literal (if type="LIT")
  • type="b" A boolean literal with a value of true or false
  • type="s" A string literal.
  • type="n" A numeric literal.
  • type="o" A null-object literal.
Property methods: literalTypeDisplayToLogical(), literalTypeGet(), literalTypeIsValid(), literalTypeLogicalToDisplay(), literalTypeLogicalToOdbc(), literalTypeNormalize(), literalTypeSet()
property name as %String;
The name of an identifier, operator, or function. Or the value of a literal.
Property methods: nameDisplayToLogical(), nameGet(), nameIsValid(), nameLogicalToDisplay(), nameLogicalToOdbc(), nameNormalize(), nameSet()
property pushElement as %Boolean;
Set to true if this node is the context node of a primitive Element node. which, if present, contains the 'id' and 'extension' properties for primitive FHIR types
Property methods: pushElementDisplayToLogical(), pushElementGet(), pushElementIsValid(), pushElementLogicalToDisplay(), pushElementNormalize(), pushElementSet()
property type as %String;
The type of node
  • type="ID": An identifier. value = The name of a variable or FHIR type
  • type="OP": An identifier. value = The name of a variable or FHIR type
  • type="FN": An identifier. The 'name' property holds the function name. The 'context' property is a Node describing the input context for the function. The 'children' property is a list of Node's providing the arguments for the function
  • type="LIT": An identifier. Literal nodes hold the literal value in the 'name' property, and the literal type (boolean, string, number, object) in the 'literalType' property
  • type="Expr": An operator. value = the actual operator (e.g. '+').
Property methods: typeDisplayToLogical(), typeGet(), typeIsValid(), typeLogicalToDisplay(), typeLogicalToOdbc(), typeNormalize(), typeSet()


method %OnNew(type As %String, name As %String) as %Status
Inherited description: This callback method is invoked by the %New() method to provide notification that a new instance of an object is being created.

If this method returns an error then the object will not be created.

It is passed the arguments provided in the %New call. When customizing this method, override the arguments with whatever variables and types you expect to receive from %New(). For example, if you're going to call %New, passing 2 arguments, %OnNew's signature could be:

Method %OnNew(dob as %Date = "", name as %Name = "") as %Status If instead of returning a %Status code this returns an oref and this oref is a subclass of the current class then this oref will be the one returned to the caller of %New method.

method toSerial() as %List
Serialized Node tree. All elements in this chain are OR'd together in a query
