Description S Page 2007-09-20 20:55:31 UTC
In SMW 1.0pre-alpha3 a property can have multiple types.  But if one of those is Enumeration, the property doesn't work.  The factbox always complains "Possible values for this property are not enumerated."

Even if a compound property could find special properties of its component types on its page, how would SMW know the component type to which they apply?  E.g.  Property:Bug might have an enumerated severity and enumerated priority; where would you specify the two separate lists of "allows value".

I suspect similar problems with trying to specify primary units and desired formats of component types of n-ary relations.

Comment 1 Markus Krötzsch 2007-10-03 17:06:57 UTC
Nary properties will not support all features of normal properties yet. It is planned to revisit earlier design decisions regarding some property settings, and to make naries compatible with the emerging design. Probably SMW1.0 will ship naries as "experimental".

We now have datatype Record since SMW 1.5.0 Thus closing this as RESOLVED FIXED.
