    Custom UI Component as Grid Custom Cell Display?

    Hi,

    so my wish is to use some HTML to create a snazzy custom grid cell display.

    My train of thinking is:

    1) as usual, create the custom cell display in code as a container, with layout = "Form"

    2) Have the container add the component gadget with addRow()

    3) the component gadget would point to a page in the page library

    4) the page in the page library would be a webview with the HTML

    And Bob's your uncle, even if your uncle is not Prime Minister.

    Should this work in Webview/Table/Phone?

    Is there a more straightforward way to use HTML in the custom cell display?

    I haven't tried this yet, but if the way should be clear, I'll spend the time to give it a shot.

    Hank

    Hi Hank,

    a "WebView" can contain HTML web content. It's up to your ingenuity how that looks and performs.

    If you look in the example_smartgrid sample app I have embedded an image, a long varchar (memo), a google chart, and a form in the grid cells.

    Hi Barry,

    am I correct in thinking that using a webview in a grid column custom cell display would require components, which are on the roadmap?

    thanks,

    Hank

    Hi Hank,

    No you can create a container, add a WebView to it and render a dynamic (.rsp .jssp) or static html in it right now.

    Ah, exactly what I needed to know: that a webview can be added to a container.

    thanks,

    Hank
