Overlay object names

The overlay object uses the same name as their corresponding overlaid objects. To distinguish overlay objects from overlaid objects, the overlayGroupID appears at the end of overlay object names.

Developer Studio  generates a name for custom objects that ends with __c. You can change the name so that __c is not part of the name, but the __c notation ensures that the name of your custom object will not conflict with any new origin object that might be introduced in a patch or upgrade. (BMC does not use the string __c in any origin object.)

View and field overlay names

Views and fields are identified by IDs, not names. Overlays for views and fields use the same ID as their overlaid views and fields. Overlays for views and fields are distinguished from their overlaid objects as the overlays are associated with a form's overlay object, not with the overlaid form.

Form overlay names

The overlays for forms use the same schemaId as their overlaid forms. To distinguish overlay forms from overlaid forms, overlayGroupID column is added to the arschema table. The overlayGroupID column consists of the following value:

0does not belong to an overlay group
1belongs to the overlay group

All overlay and custom objects have 1 in this column. Unmodified and overlaid objects always have 0 in this column. For example:

<schemaId=100>  <overlayGroupId=0>
<schemaId=100>  <overlayGroupId=1> 

Renaming overlay and overlaid objects

You cannot rename overlay objects. If you rename an overlaid object, the AR System server  automatically updates the name of its overlay object to match the new name.
