Private  Storage

Note: the use of this class is no longer recommended for accessing elements of a specific domain. For those scenarios, %iKnow.Tables.Utils offers a more flexible and customizable way of projecting iKnow domain data to SQL

This is a read-only object representation wrapping the internal iKnow data structures for Dictionary Elements.

This class can be used from ObjectScript or SQL to access a single or small number of entries, but the storage mappings are not meant to support elaborate or complex queries targeting this SQL table.

Please use the predefined queries in %iKnow.Matching.DictionaryAPI and other query classes to consult Dictionary data as the internal global structures are designed to optimize performance for these queries rather than general-purpose access.

• parameter READONLY = 1;
READONLY = 1 means that objects can be created, opened but not saved or deleted. Tables are projected to SQL as READONLY.

• classmethod ComputeStringValue(pDomainId As %Integer, pDEId As %Integer) as %String
• classmethod Open(pDomainId As %Integer, pDictionaryElementId As %Integer) as %iKnow.Objects.DictionaryElement
Returns a %iKnow.Objects.DictionaryElement object using the supplied identifiers, resolving negative dictionary Element IDs to the appropriate coordinates for a cross-domain dictionary entry.
