relationship external as %iKnow.Model.dictionaryExternal (XMLPROJECTION = "none") [ Inverse = columns , Cardinality = one ];
Link to the <matching> element this dictionary belongs to.
Property methods: externalGet(), externalGetObject(), externalGetObjectId(), externalGetSwizzled(), externalIsValid(), externalNewObject(), externalRClose(), externalRExec(), externalRFetch(), externalRelate(), externalSQLCompute(), externalSet(), externalUnRelate()
property fixedValue as %String (XMLPROJECTION = "ATTRIBUTE");
As an alternative to a position within the file or query result set, fixedValue allows hardcoding a particular value.
Property methods: fixedValueDisplayToLogical(), fixedValueGet(), fixedValueIsValid(), fixedValueLogicalToDisplay(), fixedValueLogicalToOdbc(), fixedValueNormalize(), fixedValueSet()
property position as %Integer (XMLPROJECTION = "ATTRIBUTE");
The position of the column in the file or query result set to be loaded
Property methods: positionDisplayToLogical(), positionGet(), positionIsValid(), positionLogicalToDisplay(), positionNormalize(), positionSet(), positionXSDToLogical()
property role as %String (VALUELIST = ",dictionary name,dictionary description,item name,item URI,term,language", XMLPROJECTION = "ATTRIBUTE");
The type of content this <column> contains, to be used for creating dictionary content. Each possible value can only be listed once, with the exception of "term", which can occur any number of times (>0) to simplify adding multiple columns as dictionary terms. The "term", "dictionary name" and "item URI" roles must be supplied for this <external> element to be valid.
Property methods: roleDisplayToLogical(), roleGet(), roleIsValid(), roleLogicalToDisplay(), roleLogicalToOdbc(), roleNormalize(), roleSet()
property stripQuotes as %Boolean (XMLPROJECTION = "ATTRIBUTE") [ InitialExpression = 1 ];
If referring to a column in a CSV file, this boolean defines whether or not to strip quotes surrounding the actual value of that column.
Property methods: stripQuotesDisplayToLogical(), stripQuotesGet(), stripQuotesIsValid(), stripQuotesLogicalToDisplay(), stripQuotesLogicalToXSD(), stripQuotesNormalize(), stripQuotesSet(), stripQuotesXSDToLogical()
