I'm hoping the folks here can help me with some ideas for UI that allows a user to select which fields should be displayed in a "data view". The twist here is that the data view is a mix between a straight-forward column oriented list view and a form details view.
A short example the output could be:
SomeField AnotherField ThirdField --------- ------------ ---------- Value1 Value2 Value3 ForthField: Value4 FifthField: Value5 SixthField: Value6
Users need to be able to select which fields they want displayed as columns (aka "the first row") and then which fields they want to display as part of a form details view (aka "the 2nd through nth rows").
I'm thinking about using a grid of dropdowns (containing field names)... with n columns and m rows (limited to say... 25 columns by 10 rows). But... this won't result in a super appealing UI.
