Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Version 1.3 Part 3: All-Inclusive Edition

OASIS DITA Technical Committee

The dvrKeyscopePrefix element specifies the prefix to use when constructing the effective key scope names for the map branch that is implied by the ancestor ditavalref element.

For map branches that are implied by ditavalref elements, the value of the dvrKeyscopePrefix element contributes to the effective key scope names of the branch. The effective key scope names start with the value of the dvrKeyscopePrefix element. Note that if the branch as authored does not specify a keyscope value, specifying dvrKeyscopePrefix (without also specifying dvrKeyscopeSuffix) results in the branch establishing a key scope whose name is the value of the dvrKeyscopePrefix element. The full key scope names also will reflect the value of a dvrKeyscopeSuffix element if one is specified, regardless of whether the branch as authored specifies a keyscope value.

+ topic/data ditavalref-d/dvrKeyscopePrefix


If the dvrKeyscopePrefix is specified in the following way:
<topicref keys="branch-01"
  <ditavalref href="condition-01.ditaval">
  <topicref href="topics/subtopic-01.dita"/>

Then the effective key scope name for the branch "branch-01" is "cond01-branch-01".


The following attributes are available on this element: Universal attribute group (except for conkeyref, which is removed for all elements in this domain) and the attribute defined below.

The name of the metadata item. For this element the default value is "dvrKeyscopePrefix".
