Hi all,

I am not familiar with IB composer for e.g IbComposer_execute, IbComposer_setCurrentSelection etc

I would like to know if any tutorials available for this so that we can understand how to use it.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

They are API functions we have provided for specific needs. You may not even need to use them. They are documented with examples in the manual.

Hope these get you started... Of course there is always the old-fashioned way...RTFM..Read The WebFOCUS Manual. I don'tknow what release you have but you can download a copy for yourself from the IBI website.

http://documentation.informati...omp/wf77htmlcomp.pdf. The manual contains a tutorial in Chapter 10.

Cheers,
Rhonda

Let's hope the examples in the version 8 documentation are better than the ones in the version 7.7.03 documentation - because those are quite inadequate and sometimes wrong.

Example 1:

Selecting the ALL Value in a Listbox With onafterload

function listbox1_onafterload(ctrl){
alert(IbComposer_isSelected(ctrl.id, 'ALL'));
}


An alert does not select anything.

Example 2:

Populating a Listbox With onbeforeload

function listbox1_onbeforeload(ctrl,arrValuesToLoad) {
for(var i = 0; i < arrValuesToLoad.length; i++) {
    alert(arrValuesToLoad[i].dispValue + " " + arrValuesToLoad[i].value +
    " " + arrValuesToLoad[i].selected);
    }
} 


An alert does not populate anything.
