Extensions are a key concept of the NetQuarry platform. Extensions are libraries (assemblies) that receive events from the running application objects. For example, when a record in a page is changed, the Mapper representing that data fires update events (notifications) through all of the extensions configured (via metadata) on that object.
This is a powerful programming pattern that is extremely simple for application developers, even those unfamiliar with Microsoft .NET to quickly grasp and master.
To create an extension, the developer runs a wizard from the Studio that allows them to specify the name, location, language (C#, VB.NET), and which objects they want to attach the extension. Some objects support the idea of “global” extensions (e.g. Mappers). A global extension is automatically attached to all objects of a particular class. This is particularly useful for functionality such as auditing and summary information handling. Extensions must implement a known interface () or derive from a provided base class.
