[SOLVED] Issue with Muli-Drilldowns from HTML report
 Login/Join

I have coded two dilldown links with the ALT tag, but only the last
one shows up the report.

Here is the code:

 
TYPE=DATA,
COLUMN=N4,
COLOR=GREEN,
SIZE=10,
STYLE=UNDERLINE,
WHEN=ORDST EQ 'C',
FOCEXEC=app/rpt11(ASGX=ASSIGNEE WDCX=WDC AGEX='&XAGE' WFMT='HTML'),
ALT='Open Customer Orders - HTML',
$
TYPE=DATA,
COLUMN=N4,
COLOR=GREEN,
SIZE=10,
STYLE=UNDERLINE,
WHEN=ORDST EQ 'C',
FOCEXEC=app/rpt11(ASGX=ASSIGNEE WDCX=WDC AGEX='&XAGE' WFMT='PDF'),
ALT='Open Customer Orders - PDF',
$


I am not sure what I've done wrong. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

I've only used and seen the "WHEN" attribute coded at the end of the line. You might try moving it there as:

...
STYLE=UNDERLINE,
FOCEXEC=app/rpt11(ASGX=ASSIGNEE WDCX=WDC AGEX='&XAGE' WFMT='PDF'),
ALT='Open Customer Orders - PDF',
WHEN=ORDST EQ 'C',
$

Hi,

You're defining two drilldowns for the same column with the same WHEN clause, so you'll only see the PDF link. If you'd like to create a multi-drilldown link, the syntax is different:

TYPE=DATA,
     COLUMN=N4,
     COLOR='GREEN',
     SIZE=10,
     STYLE=UNDERLINE,
     WHEN=ORDST EQ 'C',
     DRILLMENUITEM='Open Customer Orders - HTML',
        FOCEXEC=app/rpt11(ASGX=ASSIGNEE WDCX=WDC AGEX='&XAGE' WFMT='HTML'),
     DRILLMENUITEM='Open Customer Orders - PDF',
        FOCEXEC=app/rpt11(ASGX=ASSIGNEE WDCX=WDC AGEX='&XAGE' WFMT='PDF'),
$

Might I say that you're jumping around this problem like a proverbial ####### (your choice of phrase here Wink)

If we get back to what you are trying to do overall, would the following be true?

You need to output two similar reports, work orders and customer orders, with the ability to drill to a sub report in a choice of formats - HTML and PDF.

If that is true then you have obviously identified that you need to use DRILLMENUITEM syntax, and that has caused you problems because of how you need to combine the two reports into two seperate components to be "stitched" together and therefore the DRILLMENUITEM javascript gets "confused".

The simple way to move forward to encompass the solutions to the individual "challenges" would be to HOLD FORMAT HTMTABLE (not PCHOLD HTML) the reports and then stitch them together using an HTMLFORM. By using HTMTABLE you are effectively stripping off the outer HTML "glue" and therefore you will have to remedy that yourself in the HTMLFORM.

With your existing code, HOLD the two reports FORMAT HTMTABLE AS HTML1 and HTML2 and then consider this code to stitch them together (change the IBIAPP_app=focalpoint to your app folder) -

-HTMLFORM BEGIN
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Tomsweb Two Reports</title>
<script language='javascript'>
var ibiOptions = new Array("multidrill");
var focexurl = "/ibi_apps/WFServlet?IBIF_webapp=/ibi_apps&|IBIC_server=EDASERVE&|IBIWF_msgviewer=OFF&|IBIAPP_app=focalpoint&";
var fochtmlurl = "/ibi_html";
var serverLanguage='en';
</script>
<script language='javascript' src='/ibi_html/javaassist/nls.js'></script>
<script language='javascript' src='/ibi_html/javaassist/ibi/html/js/ibigbl.js'></script>
<script language='javascript'>
ibigblloadCss(null);
</script>
</head>
<body>
<table><tr><td>
!IBI.FIL.HTML1;
</td><td style="width:20px;">
</td><td>
!IBI.FIL.HTML2;
</td></t></table>
</body>
</html>
-HTMLFORM END

Just so that you do not think this is me "waving my magic wand" (keep it clean at the back!!), I grabbed the "outer" scripting requirement by first running one of the reports PCHOLD FORMAT HTML to use in the HTMLFORM. I also used the fact that, by having the files as HTMTABLE output, the MDItem array would be correctly created across both outputs.

If you want to go one step further and add hover text, then it's a simpleprocess of adding some JQuery into the mix.

BTW, this is documented in Dev Studio help files - search on "Multiple Drill-Down" and go to the bottom of the "Creating Multiple Drill-Down links" item.

Thank you very much Tony. I have been doing so much traditional coding that I haven't had opps to use HTMLFORMS. I tried your recommendations and it works so nicely.

I hate to admit this but I do not have experience w JQUERY. I am doing a search to add the drilldowns in the HTMLFORM and I hope to get some hover text.

Thanks again.

Pleasure, I quite enjoyed it actually Confused

A good site to look at (when you have time), apart from the JQuery home site, is http://www.w3schools.com/jquery/default.asp

BTW, Mika has gven the correct syntax for multiple drill downs above.
