[CLOSED] WebFOCUS 8103:- Multi Select Issue in Drop down control.
Hey guys,
I am facing an Issue in webFOCUS 8103 version.
I have created a HTML page in which i have a dropdown control with MULTIPLE SELECTION and ALL option enabled.
The Drop down control is dynamically populating a value through a .fex procedure having XML output.

On initial load the drop down shows the ALL option, but when i select other drop down value and then select ALL option
in the drop down control then on HTML it shows me _FOC_NULL. Also, in this case the when i run the report the HTML sends the options selected prior to
ALL option.
NOTE*- THIS _FOC_NULL IS SHOWN ON THE HTML NOT INSIDE THE REPORT.

Please look into the image below:-

You should share your fex code that creates the XML file. Your issue may be from there or from your control (HTML) settings.

But too few info to help

I just tried the same thing and and I'm not seeing the same behavior. My .fex that generates the list of values looks like this:
  
TABLE FILE CAR
BY COUNTRY
ON TABLE SET ASNAMES ON
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT XML
END


The parameter using this .fex is working as expected. Unfortunately, 8.103 is 4 years old so I've no way to test it for you. However, this is a very basic feature of the product and should work the same way.

What type of parameter do you have in the report you're running with this HTML page?

hey guys thanks for responding.
the fex is only populating the control.
the real issue is with the dropdown control.
i tried the same in 8105 and it is working as expected. But in 8103 when ever i am selecting ALL it gives me _FOC_NULL.

When i am disabling the multiple property of dropdown control in this case when i am selectig ALL it is behaving as it should be.
Showing ALL in html and passing _FOC_NULL in the report.

If you're seeing an anomaly in 8103 that doesn't show up in a later release, you might a) upgrade to the later version; b) ask IB tech support for a fix for the earlier version.

I suggest he latter, since 8103 is pretty old. IB just release 8205.
