To delete columns from user interface (pageblocktable) without changin code

Hi All,

 

I have a requirement where an admin user can delete the columns from a pageblocktable on the ui, without changing the code.

 

The admin user should be able to do this from the user interface.

 

Could you please tell me if this is feasible and how ?

 

Thanks in advance

There are many work around for this. If you want user to change the column order, delete any column etc.. you can do this using EXTJS grid. But preference will not be saved for the next time. If you want to save the settings then you need to Handel it with Apex controller.

 

Create a custom setting where you will maintain the column for the table, now user can delete any column or add any column using those custom settings. You just need to pick the column values from that custom settings.

Hi Ankit,

 

Thanks for the solution, i am proceeding by making a custom setting object. And adding a customize column button on the page.

 

I will add or remove columns according to that.

 

Thanks :)

You can also use custom object to achieve this.
