Use this dialog to set item class properties. For example, to change the name or description of an item class.
For more information, see:
Use this field to change the name of the item class. By default, the name is derived from the item on which the item class is based.
Note: This field becomes read-only if the Auto generate name property is set to Yes.
Note: If you change the name of an item class, this might affect the names of secondary elements (for example, joins and items in complex folders) that have the Auto generate name property set to Yes (for more information, see "About generating and updating EUL item names automatically").
Auto generate name
Use this field to change the value of the Auto generate property to Yes or No. When the Auto generate name property is set to Yes, Discoverer enables the names of some types of End User Layer (EUL) items to be dynamically generated, whenever a folder or item name (used in this type of item class) is changed.
This field becomes read-only when the Auto generate name property is not applicable to this item class.
For more information about this property, see "About generating and updating EUL item names automatically".
Use this field to change the description of the item class. The contents of this field are displayed on the description line of Discoverer Plus's Query Wizard.
Fetch in groups of
Use this field to change the maximum number of values that are returned with each fetch from the database.
Use the drop down list to sort the item class values or display them in the order that they are stored in the database.
Show in Wizard
Select Yes from this drop down list to show item class values in the Select Items page of the worksheet Wizard; users can expand the LOV when selecting items to include in a worksheet.
Select No from this drop down list not to show item class values in the Select Items page of the worksheet Wizard. Users are not able to expand the LOV when selecting items to include in a worksheet.
Display Search Dialog
Select Yes from this drop down list to require users to always search for values whenever the LOV is expanded.
Select Yes from this drop down list to store each LOV value in memory when the LOV is expanded for the first time.
Select No from this drop down list to retrieve values from the database each time the LOV is expanded.
Use this field to change the unique name that Discoverer uses to identify EUL and workbook objects. When matching objects common to different EULs, Discoverer uses identifiers to locate objects in different EULs that refer to the same business objects.
Warning: It is not advisable to change an identifier as it can affect the relationships between EUL objects.
