General behavior


Every object has a details group, which shows (editable, if possible) in-depth information about the object.

Attributes of target objects of to-1-relationsships are grouped, one group for each relationship. Target objects of containing to-many-relations are displayed together with their attributes in multiple-column lists, one list for each relationship.

The attributes and target object groups are ordered decending by importance. If more than one attribute fit into one row, they are arranged in the same row.

However, it does not show objects the object contains, if they are already shown elsewhere.

The details group is usually only shown on request. What "request" means depends on the context. However, if the available space allows that (i.e. the window contains only one container), it is shown on the right of the container listing the object.

Context menu

The "Details..." menu item in the context menu opens the details group of the object in a new window. The same does a doubleclick on an object.

The content of the context menu may be also added to the application menu (i.e. menu of the top level window containing the object), depending on the implementation of the taskets kit.

The context menu of the application object is always added to the application menu.


Actions with {normal} or {high} importance and important standard actions, like copy/paste and details, automatically get keyboard shortcuts.

The shortcuts are shown in the corresponding menu entry and can be changed by the user.


Clipboard actions are just an alternative way for D&D.
