What is the best way of creating admin-only parameters for a java iView?

Hi,

I would appreciate some advice from more experienced developers...

The scenario is as follows: I have created an Org Chart maintenance application that generates and renders xml&xsl-based Org Charts. This is the maintenance iView.

I am creating a second iView that points to each org chart(the 'Viewer' iView). This iView will be re-used many times, for different parts of our organisation. My problem is I want the portal administrator to be able to set the specific Org Chart that each instance of the 'viewer' iView points to. This needs to be editable as a configurable property.

I imagine that this is accomplished through the use of properties, what is the best way to accomplish this?

Many thanks,

Mark Hockings

    I believe that you should be able to specify the 'personalization' property to be no-dialog. This doesn't allow users to be able to change the property, but can be changed when creating the iView definition

    I hope this helps

      You can use the personalization API to do this. There are several examples including source code in the PDK. The visibility of the property can be controlled in the portalapp.xml deployment descriptor, but the administrator can override the setting when configuring the iView in the Content Studio.
