When a component is instantiated, the first thing that the Framework does is merge any integrator-provided customizations with the component's defaults, before the initialization of the component proceeds. The Framework follows specific procedures for this merging process, and these procedures can be specified by the component creator, if they have a need for a different merging process than the default ones. (Further reading: Options Merging for Infusion Components)

Specialized Options

Naturally, each component will have its own custom options, such as the tooltip text for the Inline Edit. However, the Framework supports certain fixed options that are expected for certain component types (for information about the different component types, see Component Grades). These options have fixed names that the Framework expects to see, so component developers must use these names, and not override them for other purposes.
