My First NotesIn9 Episode
My first NotesIn9 episode has been posted: Jailbreak Your XPages View Columns
In the episode, I talk about several ways to enhance the output of columns in a view panel, which, by default, just displays text from an underlying view column. Fortunately, there are several options to customize it:
- Computing a column value with SSJS
- Passing HTML through a view column
- Hijacking a view column to take complete control of its output
There are demonstrations of hijacking a view column output by displaying an iFrame within a view column as well as rendering a dojo chart within each row, reading data from the underlying documents and using it to generate the chart with client-side dojo code.
Please take a look and let me know what you think.
And if you’ve ever considered contributing to NotesIn9 — go for it! David Leedy is a pleasure to work with and he provided all the information that I needed to make this happen as easily as possible.
