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.

Hi All,

I tried to use Tasks & Animations (TA) in Appstudio to conditionally render a chart. Here is what I am doing. In a HTML page I have a filter on left and two charts on right, top chart hyper links to bottom chart. The top chart runs based on the value selected from the filter.

Requirement is to hide the bottom chart when user selects new parameter from the filter, after the first load of the both charts. This is because after first run, the bottom graph is still showing the data from the first run.
I used TA on the submit button of the filter to hide bottom chart and another TA on the TOP chart to show the bottom chart when "click event” happens on submit button and top chart respectively.
The problem is once the bottom chart is hidden by submit button, the click on the top chart does not show it. The bottom chart remains hidden.

I thought the succeeding TA should supersede the action by previous TA. Apparently, it does not. Am I missing something?
Your suggestions are much appreciated!

Hi Sandeep,
If your approach using Tasks and Animations turns out not giving you the results that you want, you might have to change your plans and use IBI's JavaScript functions to deal with making your charts visible or hidden.
