Data Manager customization: preRenderRecordLeftCol

The preRenderRecordLeftCol customization allows you to add custom HTML above the left-hand column of the core view record screen for your object (see Admin record views). 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 preRenderRecordLeftCol() { = prc.record ?: QueryNew('');

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