Data Models

Kivy is open about the type of data used in applications built with
the system. However, base classes are sometimes needed to ensure data conforms
to the requirements of some parts of the system.

A :class:`SelectableDataItem` is a basic Python data model class that can be
used as a mixin to build data objects that are compatible with Kivy's
and selection system and which work with views such as a
:class:`~kivy.uix.listview.ListView`. A boolean *is_selected*
property a requirement.

The default operation of the selection system is to not propagate selection in
views such as ListView to the underlying data: selection is by default a
view-only operation. However, in some cases, it is useful to propagate
selection to the actual data items.

You may, of course, build your own Python data model system as the backend for
a Kivy application. For instance, to use the `Google App Engine Data Modeling
system with Kivy, you could define your class as follows::

    from google.appengine.ext import db

    class MySelectableDataItem(db.Model):
        # ... other properties
        is_selected = db.BooleanProperty()

It is easy to build such a class with plain Python.
