    Complete Data Elements

    dorgan Level 1

      Is there a way to store Objects as Data Elements?  The reason I ask is we have a current data layer that we utilize and I would like to only define one data element call it model, then when populating extension values populate them as "%model%.attribute"  is there a way to do this?

          You can store objects as data elements, but you can't access them with the

          %model%.attribute

          pattern because everything outside of the %% is interpreted as literal text.

          And you can't use

          %model.attribute%

          because people actually use '.' in their data element names and we can't support both ways of doing it.  And our developers are sad about that.

          If you're doing this inside of custom code, then you can do something like

          _satellite.getVar('mydataelement').attribute

          to get access to those attributes.
