Connection mark elements

In connection marks, you can show the connection code, name, number, and running number, the group they belong to, potential errors, and the related DSTV code.

Below is a list of elements specific to connection marks. Some of the available elements are not listed here, because they are common to many types of marks, and listed separately.
