Grid Selector

Last update: Edit

1 Introduction

The Grid Selector creates a grid that consists of a list of objects to the left and one at the top. The check boxes can be used to set the reference connecting the objects. The widget thus enables quickly setting a lot of references over or for a lot of objects.

1.1 Features

  • Supports both references (radio buttons) and reference sets (check boxes)
  • An on-change action that is triggered for each change
  • Constraints for both entities
  • Paging on the left entities
  • Keyboard support with the arrow keys for navigating and the spacebar for clearing a selection

2 Configuration

The on-change microflow should be set up to commit the object if a commit is required. The widget does not commit anything itself. Use the radio-button version for setting references and the check-box version for setting reference sets.

3 Properties

3.1 On-Change Microflow

This is the microflow executed when a check box or radio button is cleared. This receives the left entity as an input parameter.

3.2 Items per Page

This is the amount of items that should be shown on the left for paging. Use 0 to disable paging and show all the objects.

3.3 Read-Only

This sets the entire grid to a read-only view.

3.4 Left Entity

This is the entity of the objects that will be displayed on the left side of the grid.

3.5 Left Constraint

This is the constraint to apply to these objects.

3.6 Left Display Attribute

This is the attribute displayed for each object.

3.7 Left Sort Attribute

This is the attribute on which the objects are sorted.

3.8 Left Sort Order

3.9 Width in Percentage

You can set the width of the first left column here. Using 0 makes it resize with the other columns.
