Macro Object help

Is there any macro object documentation to help someone new to data architect to code macros?

I see the sample macros. But without understanding how the display, model, entity, objects all play together and what the various methods and properties do and return it is rather a feeling around in the dark experience.

I have coded against various api before, but almost always have at least a basic documentation to help understand the api model.

  • I second the recommendation to check out the documentation.   One of the things I did years ago to help me understand the macros is I created a test model where everything was overloaded with metanames.  Like

    Entity Parent One -||—— identifies—-|< Entity Child One, etc. 

    Or, if you have a database that you practically have memorized, you could use that.  For instance. AdventureWorks.
