Object data

Object data tables store data that you attach to objects. The MapUtil.NewODFieldsDef function creates the structure of an object data table. The ODTables.Add method applies that structure to a specified table, registers it in the project, and specifies the type of object data, either extended entity data or an Xrecord. The Value properties of ODFieldDef objects, which are members of the ODRecord collection, represent the actual object data. The ODRecord object attaches data to objects. The collection of records contains data for an object that may be defined in different tables.
