Hi,

I am trying to understand portlets, why do we need view, edit, configure modes for a portlet. When is each mode used in the portlet ?

Thank you.

Regards
Ayub

View is the normal display mode of a portlet.

Edit allows a user to customize the experience.

Print allows them to print the contents.

Help gives them help on how to use the portlet.

Configure allows them to set up global parameters.

Exit allows them to exit the portal.

Message mode allows the portlet to be used as an instant messenger.

Video allows them to create a video camera connection.

Here's a little tutorial of mine on PortletModes:

Hi Cameron,

Sorry for delayed response. Thank you for short and simple explanation. Your website was very helpful !!

My colleague at office has your book for reference on Portals :-)

Thank you.
