42 Setting Documents Service Task Flow and Document Component Properties

All Documents service task flows and individual document components have associated properties, which users with sufficient privileges can access through the Component Properties dialog in Oracle Composer (Figure 42-1).

Figure 42-1 Document Explorer Task Flow Properties

Document Explorer Task Flow Component Properties

For information about accessing the Component Properties dialog, see Section 17.5.2.3, "Setting Component Properties."

The following sections provide information about properties of the Documents service task flows and document components (links, inline frames, and images) and describe the properties on the Parameters tab for each Documents service task flow and document component:

For the steps to add a Documents service task flow or document item to a page, see Chapter 41, "Working with the Documents Service Task Flows and Document Components."

Audience

This chapter is intended for WebCenter Spaces users who want to change the properties of content task flows and components.

42.1 What You Should Know About Documents Service Task Flow and Document Component Properties

The properties on the Parameters tab of the Component Properties dialog control the default task flow content. These properties are unique to the task flow type. For some task flows, parameters on this tab facilitate the wiring of the task flow to page parameters and page definition variables. For more information, see Chapter 19, "Wiring Pages, Task Flows, Portlets, and UI Components."

Changes to the properties on the Display Options, Style, and Content Style tabs affect the appearance and behavior of the task flow for all users. These properties are common to all task flows. For more information, see Section 17.5.2.5, "Working with Component Display Options" and Section 17.5.2.7, "Working with Style and Content Style Properties."

The contents of the Events tab depend on the events supported by the task flow. For more information, see Section 17.5.2.8, "Working with Component Contextual Events."

The Child Components tab displays all of the components contained within the current component. It provides controls for rearranging, showing, and hiding child components. Not all components contain children. So this tab may be omitted. For more information, see Section 17.5.2.6, "Working with Child Components."

All properties on the Parameters and Display Options tabs provide access to an Expression Language (EL) editor, which you can use to select or specify a variable value instead of a constant value. Click the Edit icon next to a property field to open the editor. For more information about using the editor and for descriptions of common EL expressions, see Appendix B, "Expression Language Expressions."

42.2 Setting Document Explorer Task Flow Properties

The Document Explorer task flow displays a list of folders and files in two panes: the left pane shows folders, and the right pane show the contents of the currently selected folder. It is a feature-rich Documents service task flow for viewing, managing, and collaborating on folders and files.

Properties that are unique to the Document Explorer task flow are shown on the Parameters tab of the Component Properties dialog (Figure 42-2).

Tip:

For information about accessing the Component Properties dialog, see Section 17.5.2, "Setting Properties on Page Components."

Figure 42-2 Document Explorer Task Flow Properties

Document Explorer Task Flow Component Properties

For information about the properties on the other tabs, which are common to all WebCenter components, see Section 17.5.2, "Setting Properties on Page Components."

42.2.1 Document Explorer Task Flow Parameters

Table 42-1 describes the parameters that are unique to the Document Explorer task flow.

Table 42-1 Document Explorer Task Flow Parameters

Parameter Description

Collapse Tree Navigation

Specifies whether to collapse the panel containing the tree navigation:

  • Selected (default): Collapse panel.

  • Cleared: Expand panel.

Connection Name

The name of the content repository connection. If no value is selected from the list, the default connection specified by the application developer or administrator is used. For information about configuring content repository connections, see "Registering Content Repositories" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

Default: The connection selected as default in the Create Content Repository Connection dialog box by the application developer, which can be changed by the administrator.

Features Off

A list of disabled features for the task flow. Use commas or spaces to separate items. Valid values are exposed in the JavaDoc: checkin, checkout, clipboard, close, delete, download, dnd, editwiki, editoffice, newfolder, newwiki, rename, upload, multifile-upload, profile-upload, search, advancedSearch, workflow, properties, history, comments, likes, links, tags, recommendations, autovue, title, related-items, social, sidebars, ils.

Example:

${'search, advancedSearch, clipboard, dnd, rename, newfolder, upload, newwiki, checkin, checkout, editoffice, edithtml, delete, sidebars, history'}

Page Size

The maximum number of rows to show in the task flow. If the listing of folders and files in the task flow is larger than the specified number of rows, the task flow displays a scroll bar. Default: 27

Typical scenarios where you may wish to alter this value are:

  • The majority of end users have bigger screens, allowing for the display of more rows.

  • You want to fit this task flow into a smaller area of a page.

Note: If you set Page Size to a value that is too big for the size of the screen, the end user will experience difficulty coordinating the task flow scroll bar with the application scroll bar.

Read Only

Specifies whether to disable and hide all content management operations:

  • Selected: Disable content management.

  • Cleared (default): Expose content management to users.

Resource Id

The currently focused resource. This value can be a folder ID or a document ID (as shown in the properties pane of the Document Viewer task flow).

The Resource Id value is checked for coherence with the Connection Name and Start Folder Path values, and influences their default values when they are not explicitly specified. For example, if Resource Id alone is specified, the Connection Name value will be inherited from it and the start folder will be either the resource itself for a folder or the parent folder for a file.

Show Documents

Specifies whether the navigation tree shows documents and folders, or folders only:

  • Selected: Show documents and folders.

  • Cleared (default): Show folders and hide documents.

Show Folders

Specifies whether the navigation tree shows documents and folders, or documents only:

  • Selected (default): Show folders and documents.

  • Cleared: Show documents and hide folders.

Start Folder Path

The name of the folder to use as the root folder in the current task flow instance. Click the magnifier icon to open a dialog where you can navigate the connected content repository and select a folder.

This is a content-scoping parameter that assists with determining the source and range of content to display in the task flow instance.

There is no need to set this value for task flows that display the content of the current Space's default root folder. But it is useful, for example, when you want the start folder to be other than a Space's default root folder and when you want to display content from another Space.

Example:

  • /PersonalSpaces/monty/Public

  • /WebCenterB5/Proj_X/Specs

You can specify an EL expression to set this value. See Section B.3.12, "EL Expressions Relevant to the Documents Service" in Appendix B.

Default: The root folder of the content repository configured with the specified connection for the current Space.


42.3 Setting Document List Viewer Task Flow Properties

The Document List Viewer task flow displays folders and files in a single pane as a flat listing. In this task flow, users can navigate a folder hierarchy, and customize search queries. While this task flow may be useful for a specific need, its search functionality is replicated and enhanced by the Content Presenter task flow.

Properties that are unique to the Document List Viewer task flow are shown on the Parameters tab of the Component Properties dialog (Figure 42-3).

Tip:

For information about accessing the Component Properties dialog, see Section 17.5.2, "Setting Properties on Page Components."
