I've been using DataTables for a number of things lately, where I need a bit more flexibility than a viewPanel, but I don't want to build it from scratch with a Repeat.

I'm currently working on process where I'm making a nsf to replace a MS Access database. So I'm having to adjust from the relational method. This means I need to use a key to look things up in a view to display the human friendly words rather than the code. So traditional Notes views don't do that. DataTables give me the flexibility I need. For part of this, I have 'events', and these will have one to several classes at each of these events. I want to hide the classes for each event until I click something to make it look neater and to save space.

DataTables don't have a native way to show categories, so I found one. I put a repeat in a column, and populate that repeat with a NotesViewEntryCollection from a value in a row of the DataTable. I tried to use the plus/minus icons like shown here in a great post by Ulrich Krause. But when I paged the icons disappeared. Both of them. So I used the basic idea, and put a link in that was always there to show the classes, and another link to hide them if desired. It works like I desire, so fine.

So this does what I wanted. I'm putting the code below. I have a few things to adjust. First, the classes should be in a table so they display better (I'm not putting it in to make the code a little shorter). Also, the columns resize when the repeat is expanded. Something I'll look into fixing after I post this.

Cheers,
Brian

Importing CSV via Java to a Notes Database
Fri, Aug 11th 2017 8:35p   Brian M. Moore
It's been longer than I intended since my last post, but here it is. One of the things I've posted has been importing to a Notes database. My first was using LotusScript to import from an Excel file, I've moved to using CSV which does not require an external program. This one uses a Java bean and HashMap to map the field names. As with the others, this takes two files. First is a simple where the you have the data. The column titles will match up with the same row in a title spreadsheet. Th
