When debugging the User view, you might find it useful to dump the contents of the view into a new file. To create a dump file, add the following Derivation statement to the User view:
<Field name=’DumpView’> <Derivation> <invoke name=’dumpFile’> <ref>form_inputs</ref> <s>c:/temp/view.xml</s> </invoke> </Derivation> </Field>
This Derivation expression invokes the dumpFile method, which generates the file after the User form is displayed for the first time. The form_inputs variable is automatically bound to the view that is being used with this form.
In the preceding example, the String argument to the dumpFile method is a file system path, where you substitute a valid path for c:/temp/view.xml.
