Footnote Links

XBRL footnote links contain child elements that describe footnotes used in the XBRL fragment.
The sample XBRL document shown below contains one footnote fragment:

Each of the properties is described below.

FootnoteArcs

A list of FootnoteArc objects. There is one FootnoteArc object in the list for every footnote arc defined in the XBRL fragment.
The list is implemented as an object of the standard .NET System.Collections.Generic.List class, and you can apply all of the operations available to objects of the System.Collections.Generic.List class to this list.
See the section on page 23 called “Footnote Arcs” for more information on Gepsio FootnoteArc objects.

FootnoteLocators

A list of FootnoteLocator objects. There is one FootnoteLocator object in the list for every footnote locator defined in the XBRL fragment.
The list is implemented as an object of the standard .NET System.Collections.Generic.List class, and you can apply all of the operations available to objects of the System.Collections.Generic.List class to this list.
See the section on page 25 called “Footnote Locators” for more information on Gepsio FootnoteLocator objects.
