Binding to data not defined by the default data connection
You can override the default
data binding by enabling settings to allow binding to data that
is not defined in the default data connection. The Allow Binding
To Data Not Defined By The Default Data Connection setting saves
data in fields when they are bound by name or by explicit binding
Saving or exporting undefined data in a separate namespace
save or export the data in a separate namespace, you can select
the namespace setting. The namespace lets you bind fields or subforms
to data that is outside the default data connection. When set, the
data description is automatically updated when nodes are added.
Optionally, you can specify a prefix for the namespace. If you do
not specify a namespace, the namespace information in the added
nodes is inherited from the parents of the added nodes.
can also specify that the added nodes are bound relative to a filtered
node in the Data View palette.
Identifying nodes not bound by the default data connection
Data View palette, nodes that are not bound by the default data connection
are dimmed. Keep in mind the following points when working with nodes
that are not bound by the default data connection:
You cannot drag the nodes to the form layout to create new
nodes, and you cannot bind them to existing nodes.
The node is not displayed in the Object palette> Binding
To allow binding to data that is not defined by the default data connection
Select File > Form Properties.
Click the Data Binding tab and select Allow Binding To Data
Not Defined By The Default Data Connection.
(optional) Do any of the following actions:
To add a namespace, select XML Namespace and type the namespace.
To add a prefix to the namespace, select XML Namespace Prefix
and type the prefix.
To add data nodes in the filtered hierarchy, select Add Nodes
Inside The Filtered Data Hierarchy.
