Outsystems Tables and Custom HTML Tables

Outsystems Tables and Custom HTML Tables

  

Hi guys,

I have a question about Outsystems tables and HTML tables. So I have to developp a view with a table who would have "week" columns which contains "dayOfWeek" columns.

A feature similar to this screen :

I'm a novice in Outsystems so I would like to know what is the best way to do it.

Thanks for your help.

Best Regards,

Hi,

I don't think you can use table records with web blocks inside it to build a table like that.

I think you will need to generate dynamic HTML to build the table and use escape content "No" on the expression.

It's quite common to get a request to do dynamic tables, or infinite columns. Outystems is not Excel/Project or whatever they're thinking.

By my experience, the least problematic way is a List for weeks and each week is a web block. with CSS you can everlap the week boundaries. Be aware of styles so that not a single cell gets too big or it will unformat everything.
