RFA .NET
The Data class is an abstract class for representing the Data Structure.

Namespace: ThomsonReuters.RFA.Common
Assembly: RFA8_NET110_x64 (in RFA8_NET110_x64.dll) Version: 8.0.1.1

Syntax

C#
public abstract class Data : IDisposable
Visual Basic
Public MustInherit Class Data _
	Implements IDisposable
Visual C++
public ref class Data abstract : IDisposable
F#
[<AbstractClassAttribute>]
type Data =  
    class
        interface IDisposable
    end

Remarks

Some Data subclasses support nesting of multiple heterogeneous Data instances and thus different Entries within a nesting layer may contain different types of Data. Other data types support nesting of homogenous Data instances and thus different Entries within a nesting layer need contain the same type of Data. See the specific dataType (Series, FieldList, etc ) or the RFA .NET Developer's Guide for nesting restrictions. Data subclasses are designed for efficient encoding and decoding. They are not optimized for caching with respect to object size or data lifecycle. If caching is necessary, the values stored by these objects need to be extracted and copied into application's cache objects and primitives.
