Property methods: captionDisplayToLogical(), captionGet(), captionGetStored(), captionIsValid(), captionLogicalToDisplay(), captionLogicalToOdbc(), captionNormalize(), captionSet()
property category as %String (MAXLEN = 250, XMLPROJECTION = "attribute");
Category name for this data view. A category name is used to provide a grouping for data views.
Property methods: categoryDisplayToLogical(), categoryGet(), categoryGetStored(), categoryIsValid(), categoryLogicalToDisplay(), categoryLogicalToOdbc(), categoryNormalize(), categorySet()
property description as %String (MAXLEN = 500, XMLPROJECTION = "attribute");
Optional. Description of this data view.

relationship fields as array of DataViewField (XMLELEMENTREF = 1, XMLPROJECTION = "ELEMENT", XMLTYPECONSTRAINT = "CHOICE") [ InitialExpression = $listbuild("%DeepSee.Report.DataViewField","dataView",+$this,"children",1,1) , Transient , Inverse = dataView , Cardinality = children ];
Set of fields within this data view.
Property methods: fieldsGet(), fieldsGetObject(), fieldsGetObjectId(), fieldsGetSwizzled(), fieldsIsEmpty(), fieldsIsValid(), fieldsNewObject(), fieldsRClose(), fieldsRExec(), fieldsRFetch(), fieldsRelate(), fieldsSQLCompute(), fieldsSet(), fieldsUnRelate()
property name as %String (MAXLEN = 500, XMLPROJECTION = "attribute") [ Required ];
Logical name of this data view.
This is used to identify the dataview and must be unique.

method %GetFields(Output pFields As %List) as %Status
Return an array of fields defined by this data view.
This array takes the form:
