The Result View Layout functional use case category, users will be presented with a list of use case pages. Each of these pages is dedicated to providing the configuration options for views available in MediaPortal.

Table, Card and Grid Default Views

Selecting any of these pages will open the current layout for each of views and allow for users to specify which metadata fields are expressed.

It is important to note that the layouts are, by design, not the same, users will not be able to manipulate the layout, only which fields are expressed.

Table Views

The table view will be the same configuration across all users and has no option to differentiate for object types or groups, this all objects are shown in the same table.

A user can select to not show specific columns or re-order them directly in the MediaPortal where it will be persisted.

An administrator can define, if the number of entries on a collection is displayed or not.

Additional options to adjust the layout for the table view can be done via

  • User Label: Overwrites the label in that particular context

  • Show text in Bold: Makes the label and value bold

  • Min Width(px) / Max Width(px): Sets a different size to the columns

Card View

The Card View area defines, which card layout is used as fallback, if no other custom card has been configured.

Card View Custom

Differentiate the views by

  • Media Type / Collection Type

  • Category (Single Metadata to differentiate e.g. Departments)

  • User Groups

Depending on the combination of attributes the corresponding view will be shown. So a Media Manager from the Sports department, can have a different view on Images than a Producer from a feature department.

The MediaType and Collection Type do not work in combination. The Administrator has to pick one of them.

Additional options to adjust the layout for the cards can be done via
