Focal Point Banner


As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Anyone has an example or link to document to show Chaining the controls in WebFOCUS Designer? I understand it can be done if the metadata has Hierarchy setup.

I could not find any doc yet but will work on that. However I created a report with two filters of fields that have the hierarchy defined in the master file. When I was in designer and created a page and dragged that report into a panel it detected the filters and when I ran it an selected the first filter the second filter was automatically filtered the the appropriate values.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Hi Vaayu,

Information about chaining filters on a page created in Designer, can be found in the Choosing an Event Model for Your Page Filter topic. Specifically, you can use the How to Use On-selection Change Filters procedure. Here is a direct link to the topic: https://kb.informationbuilders...del-your-page-filter

The “WITHIN keyword” mentioned in the topic is an attribute that is part of the syntax for a WHERE filter. It specifies which parameters in a chart or report to chain together. This attribute is added automatically for fields within the same hierarchy in your Master File, so those parameters will be chained when you add filters for them to a page.

If you are looking for any additional information or support, just let us know.

Thank you for your response. Would there be any metadata in WFRetail folder so I can test this?

I used the WF_RETAIL master file when I tested it on my system.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Hi Vaayu,

In case you need it, information on accessing sample data, such as wf_retail.mas, can be found in the following topic: https://kb.informationbuilders...ail-demo-sample-data

Please ignore this message, somehow it wouldn't let me delete my recent reply. Still testing the chaining feature using wf_retail.
