<FieldType> Element (/EventClass/Schema/Field)
Specifies the SQL Server data type that the event field should implement.
<EventClasses> <EventClass> ... <Schema> <Field> ... <FieldType>
|Data Type||string, between 1 and 255 characters in length.|
|Occurrence||Required once per <Field> node.|
|Updates||You can modify this element, but cannot add or delete it. Use NSControl Update to apply any modification.|
|Parent Node||<Field> Node (/EventClass/Schema)|
<FieldType> values must conform to SQL Server data types. For more information about SQL Server data types, see "Using Data Types" in SQL Server Books Online.
If you update a <FieldType> element, NSControl Update deletes and re-creates the event class to which it corresponds. This includes dropping and re-creating the SQL Server tables and indexes used by this event class.
Important If you update a <FieldType> element, any data existing in the original SQL Server tables is permanently deleted.
