A set member can be marked as “mandatory,” meaning that a member of that name must always be present in a set.
The above definition implies that calling replaceByName on a mandatory set member is OK.
The XCU format can contain
oor:mandatory attributes on nodes. (The XCS format
does not support them. In the
attributes should never be needed, as being mandatory cannot be controlled via
the UNO API.) The XCU reading code only evaluates the
for set members, and ignores it everywhere else.
Only true sets support mandatory members. A localized property for the “
locale, though acting much like a set, does not support mandatory members.
The LibreOffice Registry Format document claims that group extension properties are implicitly mandatory, but at least the new configmgr code does not treat them like that (i.e., they can be removed again).
setMandatory/getMandatory are available as virtual functions
at the base
Node, even though they can only make sense for
SetNodes that are set members. The default
getMandatory implementation returns
oor:mandatory is not set to true in any layer. (Returning
NO_LAYER simplifies the code, e.g.,
removeByName does not have to check whether
getMandatory is called on a member of a true set to decide whether to forbid
When committing changes (made through the UNO API), the “mandatory” status of
inserted nodes must be updated (in case the insert is due to a
the “mandatory” flag was added by a concurrent modification of a lower layer).
Also, for to-be-removed nodes, removal is ignored for (newly; due to concurrent
modification of a lower layer) mandatory nodes (but still recorded in
registrymodifications, so may take effect once the lower layer addition is
removed again—whether or not that is a good idea).
XcuParser records modifications when reading user layer data

data to flag it as finalized).
The logic to record modifications considers the top of the XML element stack. In the following list of all possible cases, items marked with an asterisk are recorded:
... group(modify,fuse) - group(modify,fuse) - ... ... group(modify,fuse) - set(modify,fuse) - ... ... group(modify,fuse) - *prop(modify,fuse,replace) - value(fuse) ... group(modify,fuse) - *prop(remove) ... group(modify,fuse) - locprop(modify,fuse) - *value(fuse) ... group(modify,fuse) - locprop(modify,fuse) - *value(remove) ... group(modify,fuse) - *locprop(replace) ... ... set(modify,fuse,replace) - group(modify/fuse) - ... ... set(modify,fuse,replace) - *group(replace/fuse) - ... ... set(modify,fuse,replace) - *group(remove) ... set(modify,fuse,replace) - set(modify/fuse) - ... ... set(modify,fuse,replace) - *set(replace/fuse) - ... ... set(modify,fuse,replace) - *set(remove) Legend: "...": zero or more further items "- ...": one or more further items "modify,fuse" etc.: any of those operations "modify/fuse": a modify or a fuse on an existing member "replace/fuse": a replace or a fuse on a non-existing member
