Get Details of a List

ics:listget gets the list specified in the attribute listname and retrieves the info requested in the attribute fieldname.  This information can be assigned to the variable declared in outputfieldname is the title of the field you wish to retrieve from the list.  The most common fieldname will be value as this is used in a ics:listloop to assign a list object during iteration.
Other values include:

  • #curRow - retrieve the current row number
  • #numCols - retrieve the number of columns in the list
  • #numRows - retrieve the number of rows in the list
<ics:listget listname="resultsList" fieldname="#numRows" output="resultsListSize" />

This example will return the number of items in the list.

I have spent most of my time working on these little bits of logic or snippets. These come from problems or issues I have encountered over the year. These are insights I have researched or provided as code review feedback.

Oracle WebCenter (FatWire)

During my time working in consulting I was tasked many times with delivering FatWire sites. I took notes due to the lack of useful documentation at the time. These are the results of those notes made and shared.


I believe the majority of time on a project is spent with the UI. Web is no exception. I have compiled a set of articles covering HTML, CSS and JS with the intention of taking the sting out of this work.


A space dedicated to all those things you need to know beyond writing code. This covers Linux, Windows, Git and SVN among other hopefully useful nuggets.


I picked up some pointers over the years consulting for government and banking sectors before entering a PCI DSS development environment. This section covers aspects like coding, testing, code review and best practice.


Apps is a section which offers access to bits and pieces I have put together over the last few years. This includes Random Password Generator and Base64 Encoder.
