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 page designer is there anyway that you can dictate the order of the selections in a drop down filter?

I have a filter that provides a list of dates. I would like for these dates to be in descending order. I can only get them to show in ascending order. Any thoughts?

While we are at it if I wanted to provide a key pair as a filter (Text displayed, Numeric Returned) is this possible?

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

I do not see a way to do that in page designer. If you use html composer to create the html page you can have a procedure that populates the filter that can control the order.

This sounds like a great new feature request.


Thank you for using Focal Point!
