Arguments

aspect

an object of one of the aspect classes (e.g. NodesAspect, EdgesAspect, etc.)

Details

By default aspects don't have IDs, so only the implemented classes have IDs. Aspects with IDs will be considered in the meta-data aspect to determine properties like: idCounter and elementCount.

Uses method dispatch, so the default return is NULL and only aspect classes with IDs are implemented. This way it is easier to extend the data model.

Value

character; Name of the ID property or NULL
