[Seaside] Using one component to render multiple views?

You can use the multiview component from a link... like so
html anchor callback: [ self call: (WAMultipleViewTest view: 'config') ]
text: '(configuration demo)'.
This will render the multiple view component as a page showing the
'Config View'. The rendering of this view includes link/buttons that can
change the view.
html anchor callback: [ self setView: 'EditOrganisation' ] text: '(edit)'.
this will re-render the page but with an alternative view.
You can also use the multiview component embedded in any other component
some html gen here
html render: configTestComponent
some more html gen here.
To do this the component needs to be registered as one of the children
of the containing component.
configTestComponent := WAMulipleViewTest view: 'config'.
^ Array with: configTestComponent.
hope this helps
