Subcomponent

« Back to Glossary Index

A special type of component that you can add to another component (the parent). A subcomponent defines an interface, as well as data instances. It has methods with access to its declared data structures. By override, the methods can get access to the data in its parent. When a component as a parent adds a subcomponent, the parent has direct access to data in the subcomponent.
Examples are “register” and “timer”.
