2.3.3. Node types

The content tree can contain nodes of different types. Each node type is indicated by a different icon:
  • Section-node: section_icon
  • Content-node: doc_icon
  • File-node
    • Image-file: image_icon
    • Data-file: file_icon
  • Inclusion-node
    • Section inclusion: ref_section
    • Content inclusion: ref_doc
  • Folder-node
    • Image-folder: img_folder_icon
    • File-folder: folderopen
See following sub-chapters for a description of each of these node types.
A node has one or more of the following properties:
PropertyDescription
Title The section- or content-title. For sections this is the text that will appear as the header of sections and in the table of contents of a publication. For files, this is the filename.
Alias The alias name of this node. The alias name can be used to create a reference to this node. See Section 2.3.8.8, “Links” for more information on how to create internal references. 
Applicability The node's applicability expression. See "Filtering content" in the tutorial for more information on the Docmenta fitering concept.
Status The workflow status of a content- or section-node. The status of section-nodes is automatically determined by the status of the child nodes. See "Tracking the completion status" in the tutorial for an explanation of the status values. 
Progress The progress value provides an estimation in percentage of how much of the work has already been done. The progress value of a section cannot be edited by the user, but is automatically determined by the progress values of the child nodes. See "Tracking the completion status" in the tutorial for more information on the usage of progress values.
Comment The comment can be any text that is attached to the node, e.g. a description of the modifications that still have to be incorporated into the content.
Priority The priority is to be used in combination with the comment property, to indicate the importance of the comment.
See Section 2.3.4.1, “Inserting and editing nodes” for more information on how to edit nodes.
