Use Links in a Grid to Show More Details About an Object
SAIL Recipes give you an opportunity to explore different interface design patterns. To learn how to directly use SAIL recipes within your interfaces, see Adapt a SAIL Recipe to Work with My Applications.
Display more of an object's data than can fit in a single row in a read-only paging grid.
Rather than placing all the data in the grid, have the user select a row by clicking on a link, and show the row details in a separate section of the form.
This design pattern is not recommended for offline interfaces because reflecting immediate changes in an interface based on user interaction requires a connection to the server.
This scenario demonstrates:

Test it out
- Click on the names in the grid in the left column. Notice how the value in the fields in the right column change to reflect the name you most recently clicked on.
