Using the Target Property for Input or Output

Using the Target Property for Input or Output

Typically, a component uses the
target
property to identify where it should store output. For example, a
Group
can use the property to identify an occurrence where it should store data.
It is also possible to use the property to identify where a component should obtain input. For example, suppose that a
GroupSerializer
contains an action that computes data and stores it in a variable. The
GroupSerializer
then activates a
ContentSerializer
that writes the variable to the output. You can use the
target
property to create the occurrence of the variable that the
GroupSerializer
uses. The variable then serves as the input of the
ContentSerializer
.
