Parameters can easily be configured by a user for method, services, and statement calls.

<i class="icon-list" data-behavior="MethodSignature" data-methodsignature-options="{
    'moduleid': 'MethodObject',

    'parameterid': 'MethodParameters'

The options passed to the behavior comprise:
  • moduleid: id of html element that has the method class name
  • operationid: id of html element that has the method operation

  • url: URL of method to supply list of parameters
    • Default is Application/ObjectConfiguration.ashx/ParameterList

    • Use the method comment section to define items with term and description attributes

  • Statement parameters
    • Provide a Description attribute
  • Service parameters
    • Provide Parameters/Parameter nodes, as with Statements, to define parameters for a Service
    • Provide a Description attribute
  • Fields
