Dynamic navigation iViews are context-sensitive data navigation objects. When you launch an iView or page that has associated dynamic navigation iViews, they appear in your navigation panel, below the Detailed Navigation area.
· A dynamic navigation iView contains user interface controls, such as drop-down lists and links, which retrieve data related to the content displayed in the content area.
The iView may be a list of customers, orders, regions, employees, or anything that accesses a database. Each time you click or choose an option in a dynamic navigation iView, you update the data currently displayed in the portal content area.
· Dynamic navigation iViews appear under their own names; you do not see an area in the navigation panel that is labeled Dynamic Navigation.
· It is possible for the same dynamic navigation iView to be assigned to more than one of your pages/iViews/roles.
In the event that an iView is assigned as a dynamic navigation iView to both a page and an iView on that page, your navigation panel displays only one instance of the assigned iView.
A page containing various vacation-related iViews may have assigned to it a dynamic navigation iView that comprises a list of hotels. Clicking each hotel link could retrieve data such as rates, location, availability dates, and so on, specific to that hotel.
