I need some suggestions on my requirements.
Looking for advice on how to develop this
I am very new to WF 8.
1.Create html page with 6 controls, user selects data from drop downs and keys in some data.
2. Check if the entered combination of rows exists in table.
3.If yes, throw error.
4. If not, insert the data.

Please let me know how best and fast I can do this.

Could you be a bit more specific about your 6 controls and the "combination of rows"?

1. Straight forward in HTML composer
2. Build your parameter list to use within a simple Ajax call - as you quote WF8 this is easier owing to the fact that jQuery can be used simply. There are many posts on Ajax - especially with jQuery.
3. Capture the result from the Ajax call and branch accordingly.
4. Another Ajax call? or the same one with a key word that will commit the data instead of just checking it?

Good luck

Thank you for responses.

I have to let user to insert some data into a database table.

For that,I have to give an interface which is html with 4 drop downs and 2 textboxes where user will select values from dropdowns and enters two values in text boxes.

I have to check whether the entered data combination(of 6 values - 4 dropdowns and 2 txtbox) already exists or not.

If exists, throw error, if not insert data into table.

Let me know if I am clear.

If you can't/won't use MAINTAIN then you are probably stuck with either AJAX/JS/JSP calls outside of WebFOCUS or Dialogue Manager to build SQL pass thru within a WebFOCUS FEX.

For your error check you can run a quick TABLE FILE and if it returns &LINES GT 0 then you have branch to error else
use INSERT in SQL pass thru.

Cheers

Thank you !
As its only one row insertion at a time, I am using a html and fex to validate and insert into table.
