The IDLitParameterSet class is a specialized subclass of the IDLitDataContainer class that provides the ability to associate names with the contained IDLitData objects. This association allows the iTool developer to package a set of data parameters in a single container, which is then provided to the iTools system for processing a display.
In addition to providing a mechanism for associating IDLitData objects with parameter names, the IDLitParameterSet class allows you to incorporate an IDLitData object for which no parameter name is provided. These auxiliary data items are treated as parameters for which the parameter name is a null string (
''). The auxiliary data mechanism allows you to associate any amount of data with a parameter set without the need to define parameter names.
