Presenting Data – An Alternative to the View Control


Published on

In this webinar, Paul Della-Nebbia, an IBM Champion, will show how to implement a different alternative for displaying information from Domino views. Paul will cover how to use the Dojo Data Grid (included with XPages) to display a data grid that provides unique features like infinite scrolling, click to sort column headers, adjustable column widths, filtering, and the ability to drag and drop column headers to reorder. As the user scrolls through, the view data is retrieved as needed which improves performance and usability.
