Index Types

Index type is an object that specifies the routines that manage a domain (application-specific) index. Index types reside in the same namespace as tables, views, and other schema objects. The index type name is bound to an implementation type, which in turn specifies and refers to user-defined index functions and procedures that implement the index type.


Index Type Editor allows you to define index type properties. It opens automatically when you create a new index type and is available on editing an existing one.


To open an index type in Index Type Editor, double-click it in the DB Explorer tree.
