Default Behavior

Default Behavior

If you do not assign the
target
property of a component, the component identifies data holders in the following way:
  • If the schema permits only a single occurrence of the data holder, the Script accesses or creates the occurrence.
  • If the data holder can have multiple occurrences, the behavior is as follows:
    • In an iterative context, for example, within a
      RepeatingGroup
      , each iteration creates a new occurrence of the data holder.
    • In a non-iterative context, for example, a
      Group
      that is not nested within an iterative component, the component creates one new occurrence of the data holder.
