I can't get custom orm attributes working for Propel.

I have the following custom orm2.cfg:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="no" ?>
<ormd2-configuration xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    <orm-configuration name="Propel" caption="Propel ORM" image="logoPropel.png" >
            <struct name="Inheritance" section="orm" help-url="">
                <attribute name="copy_data_to_child" type="string" />

This creates the correct custom attribute on the inheritance, but it won't be saved and nor exported to the generated .xml file for Propel.

I am not sure if the attributes for inheritances are supported by the Propel itself.

Can you please post how the resulting definitions should look like? I can fix the export based on this information.

This function was implemented in the version, and released to public today.

From version 3.0, ORM Designer was renamed to Skipper. You can download Skipper from the official website:

It's only important for concrete_inheritance.

<behavior name="concrete_inheritance">
      <parameter name="extends" value="Ad"/>
      <parameter name="copy_data_to_child" value="true" />

I can't add a custom behavior, as this just duplicates the behavior instead of adding it to the existing behavior.

Thank you for the clarification.

This is now missing in the ORM Designer because the concrete_inheritance is handled differently than both other behaviors and other inheritances.

We will fix the export so the custom parameters are supported.
