HTML Query Result View

HTMLQueryResultView is a way to query for a list of objects to be displayed.

The template contains three ways of defining the view of the data: Explorer, Select, and MultiLink.

The Explorer is what we usually call a QRV. It is a table in the web solution that is often accessed from the leftmenu, or in the HTMLContentTab. The Select and MultiLink settings are used by Client Side WebForms.

Explorer Settings

Explorer Settings are used to configure how data is displayed in a table on web. The Explorer QRV is a table meant for being displayed using the full size of the page. So the table will be the main content. It can also be used as an embedded content table for displaying content related to the main content, e.g. show an overview of Risks related to a BusinessProcessNetwork.


Buttons can be used to add options for handling the content of the table. There is a set of standard buttons available to quickly add functionality for the most common actions. It is also possible to create custom functionality.

Available settings for buttons:

  • Buttons
    • Client Side Grid: Create, Edit, Delete, Rename, Visualization 2D, Visualization 3D, Cluster, Custom.
    • Server Side QRV: Create, Edit, Delete, Rename, Export, Custom (For Client Side Grid: Export functionality is handled by grid settings)

It is possible to configure which columns are in the table along with basic settings for content of the column is displayed.

    • Using pixels can produce a horizontal scrollbar if total width of all columns exceed the content width.
    • Percentages will be the percentage of the total width of the table. If all column widths are defined in percentages, the total width of the table will not exceed 100%.
