Detail View

Important notice

From version 2020/10 on we recommend using the following syntax for getting a detail view handle:

Recommended

// get handle to AppGini Detail View
// recommended syntax since version 2020/10
var dv = AppGiniHelper.DV;
// your code here

You can use AppGiniHelper.DV multiple times in different files, as this is a singleton now.

Deprecated

// get handle to AppGini Detail View
// deprecated since version 2020/10
var dv = new AppGiniDetailView();
// your code here

The previous syntax lead to some cross effects when customers initialized a detail view instance more than once for example in multiple files (once in header-extras.php AND again in TABLENAME-dv.js). The deprecated syntax will still work, so you don't have to update your scripts. But we recommend using the new syntax instead.
