VirtualSpace Table creation

VirtualSpace Table creation

Now that results are present, the VirtualSpace Table can be created and connected to the columns using the tool:  Wizard to create the vsTable, the columns and the connections. Click on the table creation wizard to open a prompt to create the table with 4 columns named as the database columns; if asked to open the VirtualSpace, reply No. The database editor tree now shows the connection of the result to the table and columns instead of the VirtualSpace.

Now select the populate table tool:  Populates the connected vsTable with the rows of last result set.

The tool will ask you to populate twenty-three rows in the vsTable, and although it prompts you to go to the vsTable, select “No”. Hover the mouse over the table or over the columns in the VirtualSpace reference column to display the tooltip. The tooltip for the vsTable also displays the first five rows and the connections. By carefully moving the mouse into the tooltip – to avoid dismissing it – you can select a column header in the table. This will open the VirtualSpace Editor and focus the selected column.

The vsTable is special among the VirtualSpace entities and should be used to connect data tables, lists and other collections. The Table editor pane shows the table columns and rows:

All tools available to manipulate rows and columns are in the toolbar or in the context menu. Columns are drag-drop movable using their headings to reorder columns; you can also reorder multiple columns from the VirtualSpace Editor tree-table. Rows and columns can also be moved with the arrow tools. Double-click on a cell to edit its value.

When a column is selected, the Column Field Actors are displayed and can be edited. These actors provide the same functionality as the Field Actors, but are the definition of the column that is applied to all its cells (fields). The entry fields just above the table are used for, one filter per column, and the rows shown must match all defined filters.
