Urgent: maybe someone already dealt with am issue like this one?
In one module of an application I am building (I already developed it using ASP at the server side) I offer to the the user (that is a seller) the possibility to set a certain number of custom views: custom views are customized ways a seller can view data (formatted in a classical HTML table) related to his clients.
On these data I am giving to the user 2 kind of possibilities of customization:
1) one related to WHICH columns (of the table containing the client data) he wants to view;
2) the other related to the ORDER under the which he wants those columns to appear in the table.
Even though - as I previously said- I already developed this module, I would like to optimize it some way by wrapping the whole in a COMponent.
A solution to which I an thinking about is the use of metadata (the name and the order of the colums) and/or maybe uthe use of an XML file that will store the preferences setted by the user: this file will have to be updated each time an user set a new custom view or modify an existent one.
Just a note: the values that will have to be passed to the COMponent are also: the seller ID (because the app will be used by many clients) and the viewID (because
each custom view will have its own view ID).
Thanks in advance.
