I am using a tilelist to produce a (10x7) grid of boxes with
unique, customizable data (see the itemrenderer code attached).
Each box must be located in the same grid space (x, y) each time
the user views the application and I would like to display all 70
boxes even if they have empty data. The only way I can think of to
do this correctly is to pad my dataprovider query with empty data
on the boxes that do not have any information just so they will
generate in the tilelist. My only problem with this (besides being
an overall bad way to write code) is that I can easily append the
query with the additional rows but then I have to sort it to get it
in the correct order.
This just seems overkill to me and I'm sure there is a way
I also have a second issue with accessing a secondary
dataprovider in my itemrenderer component:
At the bottom of my attached itemrenderer code I have a set
of images that link to a another view. This data needs to come from
another dataprovider but I can not get the sub-tilelist to use a
seconday dataprovider when I define it in the original itemrender
sub-box tilelist. I tried using the outterdocument method to
reference the secondary dataprovider but had no luck. Any
suggestions with this.
