Oracle ADF: Enriching the actions of a ViewObject

Based on the technique described two posts back regarding creation of a custom ViewObject that offers ready to drag actions, I now give you another simple yet very handy function. The showAllRows() function when added to the AB_BaseViewObject methods, allows you to create a button in a search page that removes all view criteria and executes the current query, very useful for cases when uses enter lots of view criteria and then need to display the entire contents of the entire row with a single click.

    public void showAllRows()

Remember that in order for the action to appear in the JDeveloper Data Control Palette like in the following picture, you must include the showAllRows() function to the view objects client interface.
