Simple and complex types

Suggest edit Updated on November 10, 2021

To work with the NativeControl property, you need to understand the difference between simple and complex types.

The system wraps complex object references in dynamic objects and you can act on these dynamic objects, similar to how you would act on local complex objects.

  • Simple types, such as int, double, bool, string, and so on, are returned by value to the UI Connector.
  • Only references to complex types are returned.
