I'm trying to create shapes based on retrieving data from a 3rd party service. I have managed to get the above example working but have the following issues/aims:

Aims:
  • I want to define the shapes in the activating filter - e.g. Building Shapes - how do I do this?
  • The display is a master-details view. Is there a better way to create and display the child list (from code)? bleroy wrote some good articles - but no code demos: Ways of linking things
Issues:
  • The current way I create and compose the shape hierarchy works...but seems wrong
  • When the shapes are rendered to the page - only the top level shape works with the placement.info, how do I compose the shapes so this works?
  • Can I then use layouts to alter the display? IDeliverable - Layouts
