abstractbooleanTrue if an element is considered 'abstract' - that is the code is not for use as a real concept

This code system http://hl7.org/fhir/questionnaire-item-control defines the following codes:

LvlCodeDisplayDefinitionabstractCopy
1group UI controls relevant to organizing groups of questionstruebtn btn
2  list ListQuestions within the group should be listed sequentiallybtn btn
2  table Vertical Answer TableQuestions within the group are rows in the table with possible answers as columns. Used for 'choice' questions.btn btn
2  htable Horizontal Answer TableQuestions within the group are columns in the table with possible answers as rows. Used for 'choice' questions.btn btn
2  gtable Group TableQuestions within the group are columns in the table with each group repetition as a row. Used for single-answer questions.btn btn
2  grid Group GridChild items of type='group' within the a 'grid' group are rows, and questions beneath the 'row' groups are organized as columns in the grid. The grid might be fully populated, but could be sparse. Questions may support different data types and/or different answer choices.btn btn
2  header HeaderThe group is to be continuously visible at the top of the questionnairebtn btn
2  footer FooterThe group is to be continuously visible at the bottom of the questionnairebtn btn
2  page PageIndicates that the content within the group should appear as a logical "page" when rendering the form, such that all enabled items within the page are displayed at once, but items in subsequent groups are not displayed until the user indicates a desire to move to the 'next' group. (Header and footer items may still be displayed.) This designation may also influence pagination when printing questionnaires. If there are items at the same level as a 'page' group that are listed before the 'page' group, they will be treated as a separate page. Header and footer groups for a questionnaire will be rendered on all pages.btn btn
1display UI controls relevant to rendering questionnaire display itemstruebtn btn
2  inline In-lineDisplay item is rendered as a paragraph in a sequential position between sibling items (default behavior)btn btn
2  unit UnitDisplay item is rendered adjacent (horizontally or vertically) to the answer space for the parent question, typically to indicate a unit of measurebtn btn
2  lower Lower-boundDisplay item is rendered to the left of the set of answer choices or a scaling control for the parent question item to indicate the meaning of the 'lower' bound. E.g. 'Strongly disagree'btn btn
2  upper Upper-boundDisplay item is rendered to the right of the set of answer choices or a scaling control for the parent question item to indicate the meaning of the 'upper' bound. E.g. 'Strongly agree'btn btn
2  flyover Fly-overDisplay item is temporarily visible over top of an item if the mouse is positioned over top of the text for the containing itembtn btn
2  help Help-ButtonDisplay item is rendered in a dialog box or similar control if invoked by pushing a button or some other UI-appropriate action to request 'help' for a question, group or the questionnaire as a whole (depending what the display item is nested within)btn btn
2  legal legal-ButtonDisplay item is rendered in a dialog box or similar control if invoked by pushing a button or some other UI-appropriate action to request 'legal' info for a question, group or the questionnaire as a whole (depending what the display item is nested within)btn btn
1question UI controls relevant to capturing question datatruebtn btn
2  autocomplete Auto-completeA control which provides a list of potential matches based on text entered into a control. Used for large choice sets where text-matching is an appropriate discovery mechanism.btn btn
2  drop-down Drop downA control where an item (or multiple items) can be selected from a list that is only displayed when the user is editing the field. This control is best used for small-to-medium sized lists of options that can reasonably be scanned and selected in a drop-down control. If the list of options is managed by ValueSet, the designer should be confident that the set of codes will both be fully available and appropriately sized. For larger lists, the autocomplete control is more appropriate.btn btn
2  check-box Check-boxA control where choices are listed with a box beside them. The box can be toggled to select or de-select a given choice. Multiple selections may be possible. Commonly useful for repeating items of type constrained by answerOption, answerValueset or answerExpression, however can also be used for boolean (if the checkbox is a 3-state control that allows 'unanswered' as a possibility).btn btn
2  lookup LookupA control where editing an item spawns a separate dialog box or screen permitting a user to navigate, filter or otherwise discover an appropriate match. Useful for large choice sets where text matching is not an appropriate discovery mechanism. Such screens must generally be tuned for the specific choice list structure.btn btn
2  radio-button Radio ButtonA control where choices are listed with a button beside them. The button can be toggled to select or de-select a given choice. Selecting one item deselects all others. Used for non-repeating items with 'closed' answerOption, answerValueset or answerExpression constraints. Can also be used for boolean so long as there is a button for 'unanswered' or it's possible to deselect all items.btn btn
2  slider SliderA control where an axis is displayed between the high and low values and the control can be visually manipulated to select a value anywhere on the axis.btn btn
2  spinner SpinnerA control where a list of numeric or other ordered values can be scrolled through via arrows.btn btn
2  text-box Text BoxA control where a user can type in their answer freely.btn btn

CodeThe code (used as the code in the resource instance). If the code is in italics, this indicates that the code is not selectable ('Abstract')
DisplayThe display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
