Brief and full displays

Discover how to configure Folio brief and full record displays using OLIB Web.

The Folio title details screen can be configured so that everything is displayed in the “top half”. There are no tabs displayed and you can change to a different format, e.g. Brief to Full. This is configured on a per Media Type basis.

Create configuration settings

  1. Create a display_tabs_XXXXX setting in g_title_details with Value set to false.

This is media type-specific, so replace XXXXX with the media type to which it applies. Add a separate setting for each media type that you wish to display in full screen.

  1. Create an ssr_ti_XXXXX setting with Value = 85 so that the title details take up the full screen.

(Replace XXXXX with the media type to which it applies).

  1. Create a tidetails_XXXXX_[mnemonic] array with entries for each field that is to be included in the alternative display, e.g. tidetails_SART_full.

(Replace XXXXX with the media type to which it applies).

  1. Create an entry in the daction_array with Value set to “Brief display” (or some other text to describe the default display option), and with Value 2 set to “display:”.
  2. Create another entry in the daction_array with Value set to “Full display” (or some other text to describe the alternative display option), and Value 2 set to “display:[mnemonic]”, e.g. “display:full”.

Example for sound tracks

Create a display_tabs_TRACK in g_title_details with Value set to false

display_tabs_TRACK
Config Block g_title_details
Setting display_tabs_TRACK
Description Display tab for sound track
Value false
Sequence 3105
Sequence 2 0
Include? Yes

Create an ssr_ti_TRACK setting with Value = 85 so that the title details take up the full screen

ssr_ti_TRACK
Config Block g_title_details
Setting ssr_ti_TRACK
Description Sound recording track (no tabs) display
Value 85
Sequence 3454
Sequence 2 1
Include? Yes

For the Brief and Full display
Further settings are required to include the option to switch between different displays whilst on the title details screen (e.g. between a Brief display and a Full display).

A tidetails_TRACK array should exist in order to define what is displayed for the Brief option for TRACK records. (These will probably already be set up as the default display for that media type).

In the example below a tidetails_TRACK array with a single entry for Authors is already included and is the default Brief display:

tidetails_TRACK - Authors
Config Block g_title_details
Setting tidetails_TRACK
Description Name details for TRACK brief display
Value name
Value 2 "Authors"
Value 3 Y
Sequence 3457
Sequence 2 1
Include? Yes

Create a tidetails_TRACK_full array with entries for each field that is to be included in the alternative (full) display

Setting ID Interface Config Block Setting Value Seq1 Seq2 Include?
1000042 1 g_title_details tidetails_TRACK_full name 1 1 Y
1000043 1 g_title_details tidetails_TRACK_full pub 1 2 Y
1000044 1 g_title_details tidetails_TRACK_full mtp 1 3 Y

The above array will display fields Author, (name), Publisher (pub), Media (mtp).

Add field labels in Value 2 in the tidetails_TRACK_full array settings – for example, here the label “Edition” has been added to the edition field.

tidetails_TRACK_full - Edition
Config Block g_title_details
Setting tidetails_TRACK_full
Description Edition details for full display
Value edition
Value 2 "Edition"
Value 3  
Sequence 3454
Sequence 2 4
Include? Yes

When you include an mtp option in a details array, you need to include the SQL that determines which icon and which text is displayed for the media type, otherwise there is an error message when you try to display a record.

 Tip: copy the Value 3 field from the mtp option in the tidetails array:

"DECODE(UPPER(NVL(me.webview_icon, mt.webview_icon)), 'NONE', '', '<IMG SRC=''<IconsFolder>/icons/' || NVL(me.webview_icon, NVL(mt.webview_icon, 'Book.png')) || ''' BORDER=''0'' ALT=''' || mt.mediatpld || DECODE(me.mediumld, NULL, '', '/' || me.mediumld) || '''

When you have a media type-specific tidetails array, you need to include the media type in the showarrays_mt setting.

Here, Value is now set to ";SER;SART;TRACK;"-

showarrays_mt
Config Block g_title_details
Setting showarrays_mt
Description The list of media types that have their own array
Value ";SER;SART;TRACK;"
Allowable Values Semi-colon separated list of media types. Must begin and end with semi-colon.
Sequence 55
Sequence 2 0
Include? Yes

Create an entry in the daction_array with Value set to “Brief display” (or some other text to describe the default display option), and with Value 2 set to “display:”

Setting ID Interface Config Block Setting Value Seq1 Seq2 Include?
1000011 1 g_title_details daction_array "Full record" 101 2 Y
1000010 1 g_title_details daction_array "Brief display" 101 1

Y

daction_array - brief
Config Block g_title_details
Setting daction_array
Description The Details Action combo list array.
Value "Brief display"
Value 2 "display"
Allowable Values A valid Details Action combo list entry.
Sequence 101
Sequence 2 1
Include? Yes

Create another entry in the daction_array with Value set to “Full display” (or some other text to describe the alternative display option), and Value 2 set to “display:[mnemonic]”, e.g. “display:full”

daction_array - full
Config Block g_title_details
Setting daction_array
Description The Details Action combo list array. NB: the Display full record action is not currently implemented.
Value "Full record"
Value 2 "display:full"
Allowable Values A valid Details Action combo list entry.
Sequence 101
Sequence 2 2
Include? Yes
