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.

In resource layout painter, I'm have a parameter control as a Drop down list, dynamically populated from a master file data source.

When I run the htm page, the drop down list is empty. What is the problem?

Hi Joan,
I use 5.3.2 on Windows XP, cgi, Self Services Apps and Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) as all our apps are within a government intranet.
Anyway I have experienced what you seem to be now and some have helped me. Let me try to pass this earlier conversation thread on to you.

Joan, Bill,

I checked out the previous post and found that it had become a victim of the "posting editor" and that the HTML code had been rendered useless. I have now changed this back again - until it gets edited again.

WebFOCUS Server 8.2.01M, thru 8.2.07 on Windows Svr 2008 R2  
WebFOCUS App Studio 8.2.06 standalone on Windows 10

This problem turned out to be related to a WebFOCUS server configuration problem.

Fixing the configuration fixed the problem.
It was something about pointing to the correct drive on the server.

Thanks everyone for your help.
Looks like I could need this advice in other situations.
