B Oracle ADF Binding Properties

This appendix provides a reference for the properties of the ADF bindings.

Table B-1 shows the properties that you can use in EL expressions to access values of the ADF binding objects at runtime. The properties appear in alphabetical order.

rangeSet

Returns a list of map elements over the range of rows from the associated iterator binding. The elements in this list are wrapper objects over the indexed row in the range that restricts access to the attributes to which the binding is bound. The properties returned on the reference object are:

  • attributeValues: The array of applicable attribute values from the row.
