Property Dataset Context

The Variant Context is a context that holds the data for a set of properties.

This page is a work in progress and may undergo further revisions, updates, or amendments. The information contained herein is subject to change without notice.

Property Editors UIs require the Dataset Context to be present to work. This enables Property Editor UIs to have a generic relation with its ownership.

The Dataset Context holds a name and a set of properties. What makes a property can vary but an alias and a value are required.

Dataset Context Concerning Property Editors and Workspaces

A Dataset Context is the connection point between a Property Editor and a Workspace.

The hierarchy is as follows:

  • Workspace Context

    • Dataset Context

      • Property Editor UIs

A dataset context covers a set of properties, in some cases a workspace then needs to have multiple variants. An example of such is Document Workspace. Each variant has its own set of properties and a name.
