Description oodialog 2008-03-02 14:08:25 UTC

I created a non-sql Database driver which requires additional connection properties.
These properties should not be provided via URL parameters.
My service implementation returns those parameters via
method DriverPropertyInfo[] getPropertyInfo(...).
In your document "Data Source Properties Dialog" I found this passage:
" 3.3. Technical Dependencies / Requirements
The database drivers must return the properties, which they support, when
calling the method getProperties()."
getProperties() => getPropertyInfo(...) is that a typo?
I did not find any info on how to extend or implement the "Additional settings"
page of the property dialog.
Extending the component schema DataAccess.xcs also didn't work.
Could you please point me into the right direction?
Thanks a lot.

Currently, if you deploy an own driver, its special settings as reported by
getPropertyInfo are not respected by the UI. That is, there is no mechanism at
all to add or modify them.

I am unsure about the motivation for this issue: Do you request such an UI being
implemented? Do you want support for implementing it yourself?
