Creating a Page to View a Virtual Table

Virtual tables are not stored in the database, therefore you cannot view them directly. To view a virtual table, you must create a list page that is based on the virtual table.

To create a page to view a virtual table

  1. In the development environment, on the Tools menu, choose Object Designer.

  2. In Object Designer, choose Page, and then choose the New button.

  3. In the New Page window, in the Table field, enter the ID of the virtual table. Virtual tables have IDs in the range 2000000001 – 2000000203.

  4. In the Page section, choose Create blank page, and then choose the OK button.

  5. In Page Designer, in the first row, enter a name for the container, such as VirtualTablePageContainer. Verify that the Type is Container and the SubType is ContentArea.

  6. In Page Designer, in the second row, in the Type column, choose Group and in the SubType column, choose Repeater.

  7. In Page Designer, select the third row.

  8. On the View menu, choose Field Menu.

  9. In the Field Menu window, select all the fields in the virtual table that you want to display on the page, and then choose the OK button.


    To select multiple fields in the Field Menu window, press the Shift key or the Ctrl key while you select the fields.

  10. On the File menu, choose Save.

  11. In the Save As dialog box, in the ID field, enter an ID for the page object. The ID must be in a valid range for your solution. In the Name field, enter a name for the page. Select the Compiled check box, and then choose the OK button.

  12. To view the data that is stored in the table, in Object Designer, select the page that you created and then choose the Run button.
