DSP® Application Development

Horizontal vs. Vertical Views

Every dynamic page in DSP® must have either a Horizontal and/or a Vertical View.

The basic principle of page design is to keep the Horizontal View simple, and have more lengthy elaborate data on the Vertical View. Multi-row rendering of the data is responsive and less overwhelming to the user, while the slower computation / dense data displays on the Vertical View, which is loaded on demand.

For example, if a table contains many columns for a single record, to avoid any horizontal scrolling and foster a better user experience, create Horizontal and Vertical Views. The Horizontal View contains the basic information about the columns, while the Vertical View contains the columns on the Horizontal View and all additional columns.
