View Resources (Advanced ⚠)
Starting in 2sxc 12.02 you can also now create custom Resources for a View.
Why Use View Resources?
If Views need multi-language texts or images then the Resources would be the right place to handle them.
- Views whichs how tables may have a lot of row or column labels
View Resources complement App Resources. The difference is that App-Resources are available on all Templates while View-Resources are only available on the Views they are configured on.
If you can use View-Resources on multiple views.
This is great in cases where the same template is used for multiple views.
But you can also choose to use different Resources - just how you need it.
Remember that each Entity/Item can also be multi-language, so you only need View-Resources for static-localization. This means texts/labels/images which are the same every time the View is used.
How do View Resources Work?
View Resources are standard Entities in 2sxc. So you'll have to create a Content-Type for this containing the fields which you want to configure.
To keep the normal
Data section clean, the content-types are in the Scope
For multiple views you may end up using the same Resources Content-Type or create a new Content-Type for each view - as you need it.
How to Setup View Resources?
- First create the Content-Type in the Scope
Configurationand add the fields you want to configure
- Then in the view-configuration select that Content-Type (it will only show types on
Configuration) and either create a new entity or select an existing one.
