Default Behavior

Default Behavior

If you do not assign the
source
property of a component, the component identifies data holders in the following way:
  • If there is only one occurrence of the data holder, the component uses the existing occurrence.
  • If there are multiple occurrences of the data holder, the behavior is as follows:
    • In an iterative context, such as within a
      RepeatingGroupSerializer
      , each iteration accesses the next occurrence of the data holder in sequence.
    • In a non-iterative context, such as a
      GroupSerializer
      that is not nested within an iterative component, the component accesses the first occurrence of the data holder.
