Detailed Description

Information about the relationship between two tables.

A RelationshipInfo identifies:

  • A table
  • The related table that the table is related to.
  • The table's role in the relationship (origin or destination).
  • The relationship's cardinality.
  • Whether this is a composite relationship.

A table can participate in more than one relationship. Further, a table may be an origin table in one relationship and also a destination table in another relationship.

The relationship's cardinality describes whether features in a table are related to only one feature in the other table, or whether a feature may be related to multiple features.

In a simple relationship, the features in the participating tables can exist without the other. For example, a transformer and an electric pole may be related but one's existence does not depend on the other. Deleting the origin features will simply disassociate the destination features from the origin features.

In a composite relationship, the destination features cannot exist without the origin features. When the origin feature is deleted, the related destination feature is deleted as well. This is called a cascade delete. This dependency also means that each destination feature must be linked to a counterpart origin feature.

Member Function Documentation


Default constructor. Creates an empty RelationshipInfo.

RelationshipInfo::RelationshipInfo(const RelationshipInfo &other)

Copy constructor from other RelationshipInfo.

RelationshipInfo::RelationshipInfo(RelationshipInfo &&other)

Move constructor from other RelationshipInfo.



Esri::ArcGISRuntime::RelationshipCardinality RelationshipInfo::cardinality() const

Returns the cardinality of this relationship.

qint64 RelationshipInfo::id() const

Returns the ID of this relationship.

The relationship ID is shared between the origin and destination tables.

bool RelationshipInfo::isComposite() const

Returns whether this is a composite relationship.

In a composite relationship, a feature in the destination table must always be associated with an origin feature. Orphan features in the destination tables are not permitted. Therefore, destination table features will be deleted when their associated origin table features are deleted. (This is called a cascade delete.)

bool RelationshipInfo::isEmpty() const

Returns if this RelationshipInfo is empty.

QString RelationshipInfo::keyField() const

Returns the key field, the field that links the origin and destination tables of this relationship.

QString RelationshipInfo::name() const

Returns the name of the relationship.

qint64 RelationshipInfo::relatedTableId() const

Returns the ID of the related table.

Esri::ArcGISRuntime::RelationshipRole RelationshipInfo::role() const

Returns the role that this table has in this relationship.

RelationshipInfo &RelationshipInfo::operator=(const RelationshipInfo &other)

Assignment operator from other RelationshipInfo.

RelationshipInfo &RelationshipInfo::operator=(RelationshipInfo &&other)

Move operator from other RelationshipInfo.
