Any widget can create a drill-down link to any other widget. If you want a link to load a widget other than the one in which the links are displayed, you may populate the "drill-down" widget information in the variables below. When a drill-down widget is invoked, it is displayed as a single, full-width widget on the page. No other widgets will be displayed along with a drill-down widget.
When using a link to invoke a drill-down widget, the values specified in W$LINK.UD.POS and W$LINK.UD.VAL will be applied to the WIDGET.USER.DATA variables for the drill-down widget, not the source (referring) widget.
|W$LINK.DD.WIDGET ||Name of the drill-down widget to load when the link is clicked.|
The global variable G$DRILLDOWN.MODE is set to "1" when a widget is being executed as a drill-down widget. This allows a widget to determine whether or not it is being executed as a drill-down widget. Additionally, the global variables G$DD.REFERRER and G$DD.FROM.DB will be set to the name of the widget and dashboard from which the drill-down occurred.
