  • Specify what data from selected topics is displayed including field data from forms (display="topic,storyNumber,storyPriority")

    • Display will default to topic, revUser, revDate, firstLine
    • Predefined fields are:
      • revUser - User name of last one to change topic
      • revDate - Date last changes made
      • revNumber - RCS revision number for topic
      • topic - topic name
      • firstLine - First line from topic to return. Skips comments and headings

  • Specify column headings for table (titles="Topic,Number,Priority')

  • Can narrow topics displayed based on values of form fields (fieldSearch="storyPriority:5,storyStatus:open")

    • AND between fields (storyPriority = 5 AND storyStatus = open)

  • Use with the TablePlugin to be able to sort columns in the table

  • Display a next value line for a numeric field (nextValue=fieldName)
