Ares TABLE Tag

Follow

The TABLE tag displays a table with customizable formatting, header text, columns and order of records. These customizations are made within the tag itself and are not editable by the web user within the web interface to re-order requests or remove items from the table.

An example of how this tag would display in the HTML:

<#TABLE class="instructor-table" name="Item" id="ItemTable" type="CourseItems" headerText="Reserve Items" LinkType="ItemInfo" AllowRowClick="Yes" LinkColumn="BothTitlesIcon" AllowJavascriptHover="Yes" column="ItemID:ID" column="BothTitlesIcon:Title" column="Author:Author" column="inactiveDate:Inactive" column="CurrentStatus:Status" column="Tags:Tags" NoDataAction="ShowMessage" NoDataMessage="There are no items in this course." allowsort="true">
Beginning with version 4.7, tables with action links will have the action-link CSS class applied. Tables with action links are designated below.

Attributes Applicable to any TABLE Tag

Name The type of table that will be generated. Possible options are AuthorizedUsers, CloneInstructors, CloneItems, Course, CourseCrossList, CourseImport, CourseUsage, CourseValidation, Item, ItemHistory, ItemNonUsage, ItemNotes, ItemRestriction, ItemTracking, ItemUsage, MessageBoard, MessageBoradThread, NotificationInformation, Proxy, SharedList, SharedListItem, StudentList, ViewNotifications
ID The ID value for the table.
HeaderText Header text to be displayed at the top of the table spanning all columns.

Class The CSS class to apply to the table.
LegacyStyle Tables have a border set to 1 and cellpadding set to 2. This is considered obsolete and CSS should be used to mimic the same behavior. There are 2 possible options, true and false. If not specified, this value defaults to false.
ShowMessageRow Displays text that spans all columns. The text that is displayed is set using the NoDataMessage parameter.
ShowEmptyTable The base table and all columns will display but there will be no rows created and no message will be displayed.
ShowNone If the value provided for NoDataAction is not a valid option it is treated as if it was ShowNone. The table will not be generated.
Column Individual columns from the table results can be included that overrides the default display. If the table tag has any columns explicitly set, all columns must be explicitly set that wish to be displayed. If no columns are specified the default columns listed for each table will be used. The column attribute can be added for as many columns that need to be displayed. Default columns will only be display if no column attributes are defined. The values for the column can contain the field or a field and label. If only a field is specified, it will be used as the column header if HideColumnHeaders is set to false. Labels can be specified by appending a colon (:) and adding any label that should be used in the column header.

SharedListItemRestrictions

This will display a listing of Shared Lists that an Item can be added to. This tag will work on Item request forms where the Type=16 (the ISLRF request forms). This table tag is very similar to the ItemRestrictions tag. It can be used to select multiple Shared Lists to add an Item to (such as on the OpenURL request forms). It can also be used on the regular request forms as a reminder of which Shared List they are about to add the Items too if they change the SharedListChoice parameter to "One". This is similar to how the regular IRF request forms work where a single course is shown. When a new Item is added to a single Shared List, the DLL will redisplay the Shared List home page. If the Item is being added to multiple Shared Lists, the DLL will redirect back to the Ares main page.

This only applies to Instructors or their Full Proxies. Course proxies will not be able to see the Shared Lists since they normally don't have permissions to add Items to Shared Lists.
