Hello,

Is it possible have more then one columns in the string list attribute type, or any other ways to illustrate this in RTC currently?
We have a case where we need the paired string list as shown below, but currently RTC supports string list with only 1 column.


             Heading1  |   Heading2
             Kind1        |   Value1
             Kind2        |   Value2

We are using RTC version 4.0.6. Any hints towards this would be great help.

Regards
Madhu.

As far as I am aware, a string list attribute type is a type that stores a list of strings.
It does not store a list of a pair of strings.

However, what you put into each string, if you allow for multiple values, is up to you.
So you can store one string that actually is a pair of values, separated e.g. with a pipe as in your example. For RTC that is basically one value. If you want more, you would end up having to create a custom attribute presentation.You can do that, but it is effort, needs to be deployed and maintained.
