Using Object Navigator

Object Navigator is a user interface tool you can use to specify a path to particular attributes in TeamConnect's object model for creating custom designs. End users generally do not have rights to Object Navigator or need to use it.

Many of TeamConnect design features require you to specify paths in the object model. For example, when defining a naming pattern for a custom object, you can use Object Navigator to specify the value of a field to be used in record names. Or you may need to specify a path when designing an EasyDocs document template.

TeamConnect's object model is comprised of attribute tables. Attributes tables are linked together to form a complex web of relationships. You can use Object Navigator to traverse these relationships and create a path that points to a specific field in the user interface.

To use Object Navigator, you need:

  • An understanding of the object model in relation to the end-user interface
  • Knowledge of attributes and paths
  • A familiarity with Object Navigator and object models (Object Model: Read This First). The following table describes where Object Navigator is located in TeamConnect.
