DataMethod

open class DataMethod : ObjectBase

Encapsulates the metadata of an OData function or action.

  • Can this model element be removed by DataService.refreshMetadata. Defaults to false. Set this to true to indicate that the application is coded to be able able to function correctly without this model element.

    See also

    isRemoved.

    Declaration

    Swift

    final public var canBeRemoved: Bool
  • Has this model element been removed by a successful call to DataService.refreshMetadata? If `isRemoved == true, that implies that the old metadata (before refreshMetadata was called) did include this model element, and that the new metadata (after refreshMetadata was called) does not include this model element.

    canBeRemoved.

    Declaration

    Swift

    final public var isRemoved: Bool

    Declaration

    Swift

    final public var localName: String
  • A mangled name for this method, suitable for avoiding conflicts when generating code. This property is not automatically set during CSDL parsing; it is reserved for use by code generation tools.

    Declaration

    Swift

    final public var mangledName: String
  • The name of this method qualified by its owning DataSchema or EntityContainer name, e.g. “MySchema.MyAction” (if isImported is false]) or “MyContainer.MyAction” (if isImported is true]). The Entity container prefix is omitted for the “default” entity container in the outermost schema.

    Declaration

    Swift

    final public var qualifiedName: String
  • The name of this method as it should be referenced in resource paths.

    Declaration

    Swift

    final public var resourcePath: String
  • The name of this method qualified by its owning DataSchema and EntityContainer names, e.g. “MySchema.MyAction” (if isImported is false]) or “MySchema.MyContainer/MyAction” (if isImported is true]).

    Declaration

    Swift

    final public var targetPath: String
  • Qualified name of the associated unbound method. For OData V4+ ActionImport, this is the name of the corresponding Action. For OData V4+ FunctionImport, this is the name of the corresponding Function. Otherwise nil.
