Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Advanced OpenACS Reporting - Pivot Table HowTo

Hi Malte,

"this is my date_filter variable"

This is how it works. Did you glance the code? It's completely generic. You could even "drag" the time dimension to the left, or mix or whatever. The funny thing is: It's all contained in some 100 lines of code...

I don't believe that this structure could be superseeded by any list-oriented library, it's something completely different. For example, you can ONLY draw (summable) numeric values. You can't have text values nor can you have multiple columns like in a normal list.

In exchange, you get automagically all of these subtotals and the free floating dimensions.
