View Issues

  • Mapping tree applet maps onto views other than the view tree

    The tree applet and the associated target applet are not invoked in templates in the way standard applets are; therefore, you cannot map them like standard applets. Use View Tree or View Tree 2.

  • Increasing the number of applets that show within a region

    Most regions use a <swe:for-each> loop to define how many applets can be mapped to a region. The <swe:for each> tag includes a count argument. By increasing the count argument, you can increase the number of applets that can show within a region.

  • Subframe views

    View 25 - 75 (Framed) demonstrates subframe views. In this example, some applets appear in the left frame, and other applets appear in the right frame.

  • Applet displays differently depending on where applet is placed in a view

    In the view templates, each applet placeholder declares a style. The style declaration is evaluated at run time and determines which color scheme the applet displays and whether its title is displayed.

    By applying styles at the view template level and coding the applet templates to evaluate styles, it is possible to reuse one repository applet object in many situations. This approach promotes code reuse and reduces the number of applet copies that must be maintained for a given application.

    Currently there are three applet styles: Parent, Child, and Grandchild. Review the applet visual reference to determine what each of these styles looks like.
