14. Programming DAO: Overview > 14.6. The Properties Collection

The Properties Collection

One item that has been left out of the diagram of the DAO object model shown earlier in Figure 14-5 (and is done so in most DAO diagrams) is the Properties collection. This is because every DAO object has a Properties collection, so it would clutter up the diagram considerably without adding much information. Figure 14-9 shows a Properties collection.

The purpose of the Properties collections is simple. Properties are objects too, and so they are contained in collections, just like all other objects of the DAO (except DBEngine). Thus, the Properties collection of an object contains the Property objects (better known simply as properties) for the object.
