Class: InstanceManager

InstanceManager


new InstanceManager()

For each Panel Component there is a component which manages the instances of that panel. That component is called InstanceManager and this class provides the functionality of that component. If the panel is repeatable then there can be multiple instances of that panel, otherwise there will be only one instance. The InstanceManager provides API to retrieve, create and remove the instances.

One can retrieve the instanceManager object by using the instanceManager property of the Panel

<readonly> minOccur :Number

Minimum number of instances the panel managed by this object can have

Specifies the minimum number of times the Panel will be repeated. This can be set through the Panel Dialog. If the value is set greater than 1, the panel will be repeated at least that many times. Negative values are ignored

<readonly> maxOccur :Number

Maximum number of instances the panel managed by this object can have

Specifies the maximum number of times the Panel being managed can be repeated. This can be set through the Panel Dialog. If the value is set greater than 1, the panel can be repeated at most that many times. Negative values are ignored

<readonly> repeatable :Boolean

Specifies if the panel is repeatable or not

A Panel is considered repeatable if the value of minOccur property is strictly less than maxOccur

<readonly, non-null> somExpression :string

SOM Expression of the Node.

In Adaptive Forms SOM is a model to access fields and Panels. The SOM Expression provides easy access to the Fields and Objects through a straightforward syntax

Example
Considering the heirarchy,
-- guide
  -- panel1
  ---- field2
  ---- panel2
  ------ field3
the som Expression of field3 will be guide[0].panel1[0].panel2[0].field3[0]. The 0 here represents
the same name sibling index of that particular item in its parent. If panel2 has an additional child field3 as
  ---- panel2
  ------- field3
  ------- field3
The second field3 would have the somExpression guide[0].panel1[0].panel2[0].field3[1]

<readonly, nullable> title :string

Title of the element, localized as per the locale of the form.

Returns the localized version of the title. In case of Fields it is the Caption of the Field.
