Web Services in Public Affairs will soon launch new HTML views in the List Builder. Each of the three views available today, "imageList", "imagePast", and "imageCurrent" will be replaced. Two new views will be introduced: "archiveList" and "list".
These changes are being made to offer greater accessibility, new functionality, and simplification of customization. We are looking for feedback on our approach to these new changes, below is a description and example of each.
Colleges and units will have 6 months to update their CSS as the HTML/CSS structure is changing. Permanent redirects from the current URL to the new URL will go into place March 31, 2011.
Web Services is available to help any unit with styling the new CSS if necessary. Three options are available for updating your CSS. 1) Send Web Services an email and our part time staff will make your changes for you. 2) Call and we can do it over the phone in about 10 minutes. 3) Update the CSS yourself. More information will follow upon release of the new views.
Example of Views:
1. New: "list". Will display all items in a List, it does not support using next and previous paging. Created specifically to pull date ranges and/or item types from a list. Accepted date format is "m/d/yyyy". "startDate", "stopDate", and "itemType" are the parameters to set in your URL.
Example of pulling items for a date range (June, 2010):
Example of pulling a specific item type:
Example of pulling both a date range and an item type:
2. New: "archiveList". Will display all items in a List grouped by month. Supports both the pulling of items by date and type like #1 above. Does not support next and previous paging.
Example of "archiveList":
3. Replacement: "iList". Will replace "imageList". iList allows you to set the number of items displayed per page and supports next and previous paging. A user will be able to next through all items in the List. Pulling by date or type is not supported.
Example of "iList":
4. Replacement: "iCurrent". Will replace "imageCurrent". iCurrent will function like #3 (iList) above, but it will only display a set number of items. It will not display next and previous paging links.
Example of "iCurrent":
5. Replacement: "iPast". Wwill replace "imagePast". iPast will function like #3 (iList) above, but it will only display items that are not displayed in iCurrent. For example, if you display 5 items in iCurrent those items would not display in iPast, however all other items would, and next and previous paging is supported.
Example of "iPast":
