Defining a Binding PathLocate this document in the navigation structure

Binding paths address the different properties and lists in a model and define how a node in the hierarchical data tree can be found.


A binding path consists of a number of name tokens, which are separated by a separator char. In all models provided by the framework, the separator char is the slash "/".

A binding path can either be absolute or relative: Absolute binding paths start with a slash, relative binding paths start with a name token and are resolved relative to the context of the control that is bound.

A context exists either for each entry of the aggregation in case of aggregation binding or can be set explicitly for a control by using the setBindingContext method. Relative bindings without a defined context are resolved relative to the model root.


The syntax is specific to the respective model.
