Add Columns to OmniPortlet

| Comments

I had some questions about the limitation to 5 columns of the OmniPortlet tabular layout. Here is a tip to add more columns to this layout:

  1. backup the current OmniPortlet provider.xml /OC4J_HOME/applications/portalTools/omniPortlet/WEB-INF/providers/omniPortlet

  2. You can now open the file, and look for the tag <dataField

  3. You can add new fields, by copying the existing <dataField> tag and change the value of the <name> and <displayName>

<name>Field6</name>
<displayName>Column6</displayName>
<description>Field6</description>
<text>##column##</text>

<alignment>left</alignment>
<displayAs>hidden</displayAs>
<type>linebreak</type>
<font>Arial.3.Plain.None</font>

<color>#000000</color>
<style>none</style>
<styleType>custom</styleType>
</dataField>

The same logic could be used to add parameters or events to the OmniPortlet.
