[CLOSED]"Error retrieving data for control" when migrated from WebFOCUS 8104 to 8105
Hi All,

Recently we migrated from 8104 to 8105 and suddenly all the launch pages which were working perfectly in 8104 started throwing ‘Error retrieving data for control’ for each of the controls on the launch page, before getting the ‘Done Populating’ message at the bottom of the page.

It looks like it is also taking more time in loading due to this.
Did anyone else have seen such issue in past. Any suggestion is highly appreciable.

Thanks,
Pravin Singh

We saw the same thing as we are in process of re-writing our older HTML’s and trying to complete them in HTML Composer. We have a lot of Hidden Input controls that did not have assigned values. We ended up removing those that didn’t have values as we had like 30 of them causing the page to take like 15 seconds pre-load and it would cycle through what you are describing above. What we ended up doing is assigning values to start for those that are required, but we are now in process of setting the values to !IBI.AMP.ampername; to allow launch fexes to pass the value to the HTML.

Hope this helps.

This is not a good thing as we may well be upgrading to 8.1.05 soon and page load times are critical for us.

Hello,

Were the HTML pages created originally in HTML Composer? Have you tried opening them in App Studio, saving, and closing? This can correct some problems with upgrading.

i am facing similar issues , created HTML page in app studio , i see few errors "Error retrieving data for control.." which is impacting few existing functionality like save & schedule features .

Tried to reproduce the message with simpler version of HTML , found when controls are renamed causing all these issues ..

Any pointers will be helpful.

This issue is still not resolved. It is communicated with IBI and they would be looking to get to some solution on this. Looks like WebFOCUS 8105 have many issue specially with launch pages. Recent issue is with Save Parameter option.

Thanks,

Are you saying that you are having an issue with a parameter not being passed from a launch page to a fex? I'm having an issue with some static radio buttons. I can run fine in 8008, but when I test in 8015m, the html it passes the description rather than the actual value of the radio button. Has anyone else noticed this?

Never mind about the parameters not being passed correctly. It looks like there has been some code tightening between 8008 and 8105m. I always has checked "send display value" when I built my html, thinking it meant to send the selection at runtime. Apparently I was mistaken as this means to send the description value instead of the value itself. Got away with it in 8008, but cannot any more.
