Aspect Nodes

An aspect node is an open definition node which directly specifies a single participating aspect. During the layout process an aspect node expands to a cell for each distinct value of its participating aspect that is present among the facts of an XBRL instance file. Since the aspect value constraint is not fully determined by the node’s definition and the DTS, the layout preview shows a place holder (see screenshot below).
