Fun Share: DVL Hack

I wanted to share a DVL hack shared by a user via Intercom. I have assembled a simple example here

tldr; You can bind a DVL to a blank table with a lotta rows. Set the empty string text to “”. Then loop through the list of table ID’s and assign DVL components properties without ever dumping data into the table!

AMA! Can’t wait to see what you all can thunk up with this special sauce!


neat trick! thanks for the hack!


I tried that previously but found out that cloning works much faster especially when you use a custom DVL.

However, until cloning becomes available in DnD, I use a sort of this trick to do the filtering of data using DVL. Basically go through the rows making unwanted ones hidden.
