[OpenMap Users] Question about Data/Functional Flow of Properties to PropertyConsumers and some Possible Configuration Issues

Hello Everyone,

Can anyone briefly explain the data flow of how proerties are delivered to PropertyConsumers
and what the carriers/function/data flows are - and - any gotchas?

If I create a descenedent of JDialog and implement PropertyConsumer - will I always get properties
delivered from my properties file? - Or should I also implement other Interfaces as well?

Is there a master properties file that contains all properties read from the properties files?

How about the following example:

in my properties file i assign the following:

myCustomDialog.prettyName=My Custom Dialog

If I manipulate prettyName via getProperties and setProperties I assume I will receive those property values;
but what about if i don't currently reference notUsedOrAssignedYet01 in my getProperties and setProperties;
will it still be deliverered as a property to myCustomDialog?

I'm trying to get a better understanding of how the properties work and are delivered.

PS: If i instantiate some objects via the API inside my code but want them at least partially configured from settings
in the properties file, I guess I should have some related PropertyConsumer object that receives these settings and
distributes them on the fly to instantiated objects - does this sound reasonable?
