Notes

  • A columns browser node can only be displayed if passed to the Node Configurations parameter of the columns browser.
  • The columns browser component does not support dynamic links nor submit links node configurations.
  • The columns browser component does not permit links in images in node configurations.
  • The variable fv!nodeValue is only available when the columns browser node is used in either the Node Configurations or Next Column Values parameters of the columns browser.
  • The Identifier field can be any value, but using long strings or large data types could cause performance problems. We recommended using a data type's primary key, if available.

For an example of how to configure a columns browser node, see the example in the Columns Browser.
