Hello everyone! I'm new in creating ontology with Protege. These days, I try to define a datatype, but I've found no way to do that. I know it can be done in OWL 2 by using DatatypeDefinition.

Any help would be highly appreciated!

I have Protégé 4.1 but it must be similar in Protégé 4.2 (although there have been many changes in the interface between 4.1 and 4.2). Go to the Entities tab, on the bottom left there is a region where you find several tabs, including "Datatypes". Click it and you will find a button to add a datatype. A window pops up where you can put the datatype's name. Once created, select it and you will be able to provide its definition by clicking the + in the lower right region, besides "Datatype Definitions". The input format for the definition is the same as the input format for DataRange.

Thank you so much! I'm using Protege 4.0 with OBDA-Plugin mostly, there's no such a tab in the region you mentioned. But, I've found it in my Protege 4.1.
