- Opening a Page with a Grid Component and Showing Selected Records
/pages/Server/Guide/Design/View/Grid/Opening a Page with a Grid Component and Showing Selected Records.xml
A common requirement when building a grid is to have a hyperlink field in the grid that, when clicked, will open a second page. The second page contains a grid that is filtered based on parameters from the first page. These examples show how to do this.
The URL that opens the second page has query parameters that contain one or more of the _filter, _order, and _link keywords. These keywords allow you to specify a filter, order and/or linking parameters for the grid in the target page.

- Arguments - Dynamic Choices
/pages/Server/Guide/Design/View/Arguments - Dynamic Choices.xml
Arguments are used extensively throughout Alpha Anywhere.

- Dynamic Column Headings
/pages/Server/Guide/Design/View/A5W/Dynamic Column Headings.xml
The following technique shows how to display dynamic column headings in a grid component. The key to doing this is realizing that any property of a component can be overwritten before the component is executed. For example, the following is the code in the section of a .a5w page that contains a component. All of the code shown in blue is code that is automatically inserted by the Web Component Builder when you insert a component on a page. (This is just a portion of the code.)
