Lists

Lists take a selection of items and turn them into a document section with lists of items. It differentiates between Folders and Items and has different output formatting for each. In addition Lists support iterators which can follow either the children or the links and apply themselves to each. This way you can create nested lists of folder structures or traceability graphs.
The following settings are available for Lists:

  • Folder: This is the formatted output for each folder.

  • Item: The formatted output for each item

  • UL: The HTML for the list, usually this is <ul> or <ol> but you could also use a plain <div> with styling

  • LI: The HTML for each list item

Formats

A FORMAT item is a complex format block that can be included in other item formaters. Using FORMATs you can create reusable parts for your other formaters.
The following settings are available for Formats:

  • Condition: Decide if a format block should be displayed at all

  • Iterator: Run the format over multiple values of an item, either the fields or the labels. Use this if you want to create a list of all fields of an item.

  • Render: The format for rendering the value

Tables

Similar to a list, a table takes a selection of items and applies a format to each item, differentiating between folders and item. Unlike Lists there is no direct templating in the table, instead you can assign FORMAT or SUBTABLE to columns and using these you can construct the table.
The following settings are available:

  • Iterator: These allow you to dynamically construct the table from either links or children. When using this each folder item or linked item will generate a new table row.

  • Table headers: Define and format the header of the table. This is a rich-text box where you have to insert a table that will be used to construct the formatting of the table columns.
