DataSet View

The DataSet View Widget allows content from a created DataSet to be added into a Region, organised and displayed in a tabular format.

When the underlying DataSet Data is changed, the DataSet View Widget included in your Layout(s), will automatically update with the new data.

Once a DataSet has been added to a DataSet View, care should be taken when editing the column structure of the DataSet.

Ensure that you have created a DataSet prior to adding a DataSet View to a Layout.

You cannot change to a different DataSet once it has been added to a DataSet View. To use an alternative DataSet a new DataSet View would need to be created.
