Portlets from applications

Use view pages as portlets

The "Use as portlet" setting can be found in two places:

On the Portlet tab in the properties dialog of a view page.

and on the Portlets tab in the application properties, when you click on "Edit".

If you add view pages on the Portlets tab in the application properties, the "Use as portlet" setting is automatically activated in the view page properties. Equally, every page, where the "Use as portlet" setting has been activated, will be listed on the Portlets tab in the application properties.

The following conditions must be met to use a page as a portlet:

  • The page does not contain a portlet container

  • The page is a view page (edit pages cannot be used as a portlet)

If a view page is defined as a portlet, you will find a corresponding button with the title of the page in the Portlets from applications area on all portal pages. This button allows you to allocate the portlet so that it can be used in the browser.

Portlet container

The portlet container is an application element that allows you to display portlets on view and edit pages. As is the case with all portal pages, you will then find an arrow button on the right-hand side of the page. Click here to open the settings where you can select and arrange the portlets of your choice.

The following conditions must be met to use a portlet container on a page:

  • The page is not being used as a portlet
