Creating Item Tables with Icons

Print Friendly and PDF Follow

You can create or adjust Item tables (such as the table on UCourseInfo.html) without losing the default icons. See Ares TABLE Tag for a list of all available table customizations.

Table Tags

The following table tags allow you to control the behavior of icons:

  • IconColumn: Specifies the column in which to display item icons.  May be used instead of the BothTitlesIcon and BothTitlesViewedIcon special columns.
  • IconAlign: Valid values are “Left” (default) and “Right”.  When IconColumn is specified, controls the alignment of the icon within the table cell.
  • IconStyle: Valid values are “Icon” (default) and “IconViewed”.  When IconColumn is specified and when viewed in a student context, will control whether or not to display the “New” icon next to the regular item icon if the student has not yet viewed an item.

Example

<#TABLE class="instructor-table" name="Item" id="ItemTable" type="CourseItems" headerText="Reserve Items" LinkType="ItemInfo" AllowRowClick="Yes" LinkColumn="BothTitles" AllowJavascriptHover="Yes" column="ItemID:ID" column="BothTitles: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" IconColumn="BothTitles" IconAlign="Left" >
