Data Manager customization: preRenderRecord

Data Manager customization: preRenderRecord

The preRenderRecord customization allows you to add additional HTML above the core rendering of a view record screen for an object. The action is expected to return a string containing the HTML and is provided the following in the args struct:

  • objectName: The object name
  • recordId: ID of the record
  • version: Version number of the record (if the object is versioned)


You can also make use of variables in the prc scope, such as prc.record, that will allow you to potentially not duplicate calls to the database.

For example:

// /application/handlers/admin/datamanager/blog.cfc

component {

	private string function preRenderRecord() { = prc.record ?: QueryNew('');

		return renderView( view="/admin/blogs/viewRecordHeader", args=args );
