Value Type

A value type is a data type without identity that is defined for a dimension (QuantityKind) and a unit.

Wertetyp anlegen

Wertetypen können Sie manuell über einen Dialog erfassen. Ein Wertetypen erkennen Sie im System an diesem Icon:


The stereotype of value type is <<BlockValueType>>. You need the stereotype when you create document templates, queries, forms, or search for a value type in the tool. In the Stereotypes window, you can find the BlockValueType stereotype under DomainElement. Here you can create additional sub stereotypes or user-defined properties. Properties do not have to be created separately for each sub stereotype, since the properties are inherited from the main stereotype.
