Disclosed is a generic table widget that is able to discover information from a UI model in order to present information to an end user in a fashion that is consistant and specific to that model. If a diverse set of models are derived from some agreed upon common model that consists of object types and one or more relationships, a single table widget of this sort may be used to view the data of any of these models, complete with the appropriate sets of columns for each model. A single instance of this widget may be used to view data from multiple models in one session, as it discovers model information dynamically.
