Mobile view - grid display and list view

The Web Portal is has been designed not only for use with desktops but also mobile devices, so you can modify the mobile view settings. You have different setting options in the Web Designer.

Detailed information about this topic

Customizing the list view

The Web Designer offers different setting options for adjusting the usual desktop grid view in the Web Portal to suit a mobile mode. The List view node is available at every grid level. This means, you can make changes in the Web Designer anywhere where these nodes are available.

The following table describes the setting options for the list view.

Table 55: Display options for the list view

Display Option


Disable list view

The grid view is used as apposed to the list view in mobile mode in the Web Portal. This setting is not recommended because it makes operating and displaying difficult due to lack of space on mobile displays.

Automatically generate the list view

This setting automatically generates the list view for mobile mode. This is sufficient for simple tables, meaning, a list view without other options and buttons.

Define a list view

This setting allows you to customize the list view. The list view works independently of the table view for this setting, meaning, if changes have been made to the table view, you must also make them in the list view, otherwise, the changes are not visible in the list view.

NOTE: The groups and filter function is not available in mobile mode. You can 'leaf' backward and forward within the list view.

Customizing the list view is described using an example based on the component VI_ITShop_ApprovalItem, which is used in the Pending requests menu in the Web Portal.

To customize the list view

  1. Open the component VI_ITShop_ApprovalItem in the definition tree view.
  2. Create an object copy and ensure that Add substitution rule for current object is not set.
  3. Open Grid band - PersonWantsOrgGrid under Definitionin your object copy.
  4. Mark List view and select the entry you want from the List view mode menu in the Node Editor view. The following items are available:
    1. Disable list view
    2. Automatically generate the list view
    3. Define a list view

Disable list views

You can disable list views in mobile mode in the Web Portal with the help of the configuration parameter VI_Common_GridListViewDisabled.

To disable list views

  1. Open Edit > Configure project > Web project and search for VI_Common_GridListViewDisabled.

    The configuration is displayed with the default setting 'false'.

  2. In the Value (custom), click .

    This sets the configuration parameter to "true". Enable "Disable all grid list views".
