Navigation list definitions

A navigation list definition is a binding between an object type and a list view that displays a list of related objects. When you select an object in the explorer view, the NavigationListDefinition definition that is associated with that object type is used to determine which list views display in the main work area. For example, the default navigation list definition for a master catalog category displays the list of catalog entries that belong to the selected category.

The NavigationListDefinition definition is used to describe a navigation list binding. The list of related objects can be an instance of a ChildListEditor definition or ReferencesList definition. A child list editor is a list of objects that belong to the same parent object, such as a list of products within a category. A references list is a list of all objects that have the current object as a child object. For example, a references list for an e-Marketing Spot can include the list of marketing activities that are scheduled to display or run in the e-Marketing Spot.
