This function is used when defining a content rule for a field. The value of a field for a content profile can be made dependent on a view by using this function. Because a field can have both a default and a derived value, the view can be used to create an interdependency between fields.
Takes three parameters:
Field. The name of a metadata field. This field must have an associated view.
Value. A lookup key for value.
Column name. A column in the view's table.
Returns the value in the column specified using the field value as a lookup.
In the following example, the view table for the field
xEmployee has a column called
type. Using the value as specified in the
xEmployee metadata field, this function provides a lookup into this table and returns the
type column value.
getFieldViewValue("xEmployee", #active.xEmployee, "type")
