How to make invisible iView visible on a page after click of a link?


I have three iViews on a page.Out of three one iView is invisible by default.

Now on the click of link on one of the iView I want to make invisible iView as Visible and shift focus on that iView and after performing some operations on that I want to again hide that iView.

How can i achieve this??

Is there any other better approach for acheiving above task??

    Hi Vikas,

    You can use DIV and Isolated HTML container in an iView to achieve this.

    Required :

    1. iView to be hidden and displayed on link click.

    2. Another iView with a link, DIV tag and Isolated HTML container. Have the Isolated HTML container in a DIV tag and play with the property of the DIV tag on link click using Javascript.

    Hope that helps.

    • Hi Vikas,

      You can have a link in the iView, and then capture the event to change the PCD properties of the page so that the third iView is displayed.

      You could then navigate to the page, let the user work on it, and provide a link to do the opposite.


      To make an iView on a page, do something like the following:

      String pageID = "portal_content/myFolder/myRole/myPage";

      try {

      iCtx = new InitialContext(env);

      IPage myPage = (IPage)iCtx.lookup(pageID);

      Enumeration myIviews = myPage.getiViews();

      while (myIviews.hasMoreElements()) {

      Binding bind = (Binding) myIviews.nextElement();

      IiView myIview = (IiView) bind.getObject();





      But why not just have iViews on their own pages, all under a folder, and just navigate between them? Why do you need the iViews to disappear?

      As far I know, there is no focus, that is, where you navigate to a page and set the focus on iView #2.
