Make submetaobjectname accessible

5

When you specilize an netity, Mendix adds the column "submetaobjectname" to the general entity and stores the name of the specialization in it. There are many cases where I want to display the general item and show the user what type of item is, and I have to build custom functionality to basically duplicate the "submetaobjectname" column. Why can't we access this column from Mendix or Java?

If you want to display this, wouldn't you still need a way to determine the way it's displayed? Seems to me like you would still need to add a DisplaySpecialization attribute for this anyway.
