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.

[SOLVED]How to include HTML files

I am a WebFOCUS newbie and here is what I am trying to do.

I have a set of HTML files that contain a number filters (dropdowns, checkboxes, radiobuttons, etc.).

I have another set of HTML files that contain a set of placeholders (IFRAME objects) that our developers can use to import existing procedures.

My goal is to create a new set "final" HTML file that combines a HTML file from my first set with a HTML file from my final set. This "final" HTML file will be used to create our BI Portal pages.

I hope I am making sense. The reason I am doing this is to implement some sort of re-usability of our content.

Can someone please let me know if I am in the right path. if so, how would I implement this?

Thanks.

Have you tried creating a portal yet? You can create them from the landing page(wfserver.com/ibi_apps), and you just need to drag and drop your content.

Other then that you would need to create an HTML page that calls your other pages through IFrames.

Thanks Eric. Yes, I have created a portal and I am able to drag and drop my content. However, my intention is to create all the HTML content using AppStudio and then drop a single HTML file into the portal. Can you explain a bit more on creating a HTML page that calls other pages through IFrames? I can't figure out how to do this in AppStudio.

rajje,

there is way to much for me to be able to teach you how to use app studio in a thread. Its probably best to take a class from IBI on creating HTML content through App Studio. They will get you going faster then I can.

Personally I'm still a Developer Studio Kind of guy... I'm not a fan of App Studio. I personally find it more confusing the way its laid out.

Thanks Eric. Being new to WebFOCUS, I am trying to build my content in AppSudio as much as I can. I will continue to experiment.

I'd suggest doing your HTML files as FEX files using HTMLFORM..
-HTMLFORM BEGIN
<div>Here</div>
-HTMLFORM END

Then to include them it's as simple as..

Client Side Includes:
-INCLUDE IBFS:/WFC/Repository/Folder1/SubFolder/file.fex


Reporting Server file Includes:
-INCLUDE IBFS:/EDA/EDASERVE/Folder1/SubFolder/file.fex



- FOCUS Man, just FOCUS!
