			//Set column properties for specific views.
			//Where VIEWNAME is the view name stored in a session scope variable
			if (svals.containsValue("VIEWNAME") & colDef.isLink()) {

This is an example of base code that can be used for the Extension Libraries Dynamic View Panel Customizer bean property.  
Add the code to your NSF as a Java Code Element (8.5.3) or as a java class in the package explorer (8.5.2).  
See the code comments for specific instructions on the VIEWNAMEs and COLUMNNAMES
