Location (attribute of actiongroup)

From JRapid

Jump to: navigation, search

location is an attribute of actiongroup.



The location attribute specifies where to render the actiongroup.

The possible values are:

  • "form": the actiongroup will be rendered on the bottom of the entity's form.
(if not hidden by displayactiongroups).
  • "listing": the actiongroup will be rendered on the bottom of each entity's listing
(if not hidden by displayactiongroups).
  • "local": the actiongroup will be rendered somewhere in the row of the entity listing (depending on the view).
(if not hidden by displayactiongroups).

NOTE: some views may not support the "local" location, in that case, the actiongroup won't be visible.


<actiongroup name = NAME 
   label = LABEL 
   location = "listing | local | form" >


Take a look at the image below. Here we can see several things:

  • the top-part of the image is the default listing of the entity
    • here we see both the locations LISTING and LOCAL of the same action with label='Widget Select (default)'.
    • if you look at the code, you'll see that the actiongroup has no widget defined.
  • the bottom-part of the image is the entity's form
    • right next to the OK and CANCEL buttons, you'll find the same actiongroup as in the listings
    • the form has 2 properties, and the 2nd one has a property-actiongroup associated to it
    • if you click on "action 03" or "action 04", you'll get the alert, that simply outputs the text of the select option of the property.
