Displaying multiple recordset results
The Repeat Region server behavior lets you display multiple records from a recordset within a page. Any dynamic data selection can be turned into a repeated region. However, the most common regions are tables, table rows, or a series of table rows.
To learn more about using the Repeat Region server behavior, see Displaying multiple recordset results and Creating a table with a Repeat Region server behavior.
To create a repeated region:
- In Design view, select a region that contains dynamic content.
The selection can be anything, including a table, a table row, or even a paragraph of text.
To select a region on the page precisely, you can use the tag selector on the left corner of the document window. For example, if the region is a table row, click inside the row on the page, then click the rightmost
<tr> tag in the tag selector to select the table row.
- Select Window > Server Behaviors to display the Server Behaviors panel.
- Click the Plus (+) button, and select Repeat Region.
The Repeat Region dialog box appears.
- Select the name of the recordset to use from the pop-up menu.
- Select the number of records to display per page.
- Click OK.
In the Document window, a thin, tabbed, gray outline appears around the repeated region. In the Live Data window (View > Live Data), the gray outline disappears and the selection expands to display the number of records you specified.
