If this method returns an error then the object will not be created.

It is passed the arguments provided in the %New call. When customizing this method, override the arguments with whatever variables and types you expect to receive from %New(). For example, if you're going to call %New, passing 2 arguments, %OnNew's signature could be:

Method %OnNew(dob as %Date = "", name as %Name = "") as %Status If instead of returning a %Status code this returns an oref and this oref is a subclass of the current class then this oref will be the one returned to the caller of %New method.

• method GenerateDescriptor(pCompiler As EnsLib.EDI.SEF.Compiler) as %Status
This method is overriden by subclasses to generate the code that this node represents
• method Mask() as EnsLib.EDI.SEF.SegmentMask
Return the in-use mask as indicated by SetSegment definition. If no mask is in use, return nulloref
• method Validate(ByRef pStatus As %Status) as %Status
