Attributes are used to access data members of objects through an interface.


Attributes are defined in interfaces as get and optional set methods. Although UNOIDL knows attributes for compatibility reasons, this feature is not used. The attribute identifier begins with a capital letter. The mixed upper and lower case method is used to separate single words. Only letters and numbers are allowed with no underscores, for example, getParent() and setParent().


Attributes are used to express structural relationships, with and without lifetime coupling. For scripting languages, the attributes are accessed as properties.
