Attributes description

The DirectoryResource defines the following attributes:

Should the directory resource automatically create resource with NegotiatedFrame? When this flag is turned to true, the directory resource will automatically create negotiable resources on top of normal resources: each time a new resource is added to the directory, the resource looks up for a resource having the new child name, but possibly different extensions. If this succeeds, either the found resource is already a negotiated resource, in which case the new child is added as one of its variant resource; otherwise (the negotiated resource doesn't exist), the directory resource creates it with only one variant (the new child resource).
This attribute is an editable BooleanAttribute
