Table 1. Data Hierarchy Modifier builder inputs
|Name||Enter a name for this builder call. The WebSphere® Portlet Factory Designer displays this name in the builder call list.|
|Field Selector||Select the way you want to select the fields that are placed in groups. You can select fields based on: |
Fields are listed by label in the table below.Type
String, Integer, or other format. Fields are listed by type in the table below.Both techniques
Fields are listed by Name and Type in the table below.
|Fields (Names and/or Types)||Use the chooser to select the element to modify with this Data Field Hierarchy builder. To specify more than one element, select multiple elements. |
|Template File||Select the HTML Template file to use for the basis of the displayed page. |
You can override the template file that is used for all of the new groups that are created. It does not affect the selected containers chosen in the Fields or Field Types input.
|New Group Names||Enter a comma-separated list of the new groups to create as subgroups in the selected containers. When you enter these, they appear in the table and are denoted as groups.|
New Groups are denoted by leading asterisks.
Note: Do not use spaces in group names. You can change the label for the group name to have spaces, but the actual group name must be a valid Java identifier (only alphanumeric and underscore characters).
|Column Table||Use this table to hide or show elements, to change their labels, and to group elements. |
Select the display status of an item to Hide, Show or Do Not Change (from status set with other page automation builders such as Data Field Modifier builder).Label
Enter an optional label to be displayed for the item. Group Elements
The order of table rows determines what elements are put in which groups. Every item that follows a group name (comma delimited list entered above) up to the next group name, are moved to that group. Group names are preceded by three asterisks (***) in the table.Only the elements that are listed before the first group name remain in the original container.
Use drag-and-drop to move items among table rows and groups.
|Unrepresented Fields||In some cases, the data returned by a bean or SQL Query might change, and additional data fields are returned. This input allows you to control how those additional fields are handled by the builder. You can choose: |
Fields not represented in the table should be left at the top level
Adds new fields above the table groups. Fields not represented in the table should be hidden
Adds a new group call but marks it hidden, and puts new fields there. Fields not represented in the table should be added to one of the newly created groups
Choose an existing group and place new fields in it.
|Group Field||Displayed when you add new fields to an existing group. |
Select the Group to which the new fields are added.
