[SOLVED] Save Favorite Parameters
 Login/Join

I am getting a new Requirement, In which USER has to be given an Option for Saving his Favorite Parameters in the Parameter Screen.

Whenever He logs in Back his Default Favorite parameter has to be populated in the input elements. He can also select from a list of Other Fav params.

We are using WebFOCUS 7.6.11..

Is there a direct way (new feature available in latest versions) of doing this in MRE/Dashboards? Or we need to plan and write coding using separate DB to achieve this ?

I'm not aware of any standard functionality that does this.

I think you will have to code something.

You could also put in a case with IBI and ask them as well.

We are encountering this in a current project as well. We have an IBI consultant onsite and he agrees that we can use a SQL insert/update command into a table to store the parameters.

When the user needs to retrieve the report, the controls will populate based on the saved fields..

Thank you Waz and Troy for the Replies.

In such case we have to design a Seperate a DB table and functionality to achieve this ?

And Waz, Definitely I will have a word with IB on this...

The DB can be what ever you want RDBMS or FOCUs file or something else.

You will have to write something though.

Code to capture the parameters and write them, and code to retrieve the parameters.
