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.
Suppose I have four panels on a dashboard. Panel A calculates X (as well as some other calculations). Panel B calculates Y (as well as some other calculations). Panel C needs to show X and Y. And the fourth is a filter panel with some drop downs and a submit button (we'll call this panel D). The other three panels update whenever this submit button is clicked and they all respect whatever filters are selected.
Now I really hate using redundant code, so ideally for me, panel C will only update when both A and B run and save the results to some place (global variable or maybe a hold file). And I don't want to create a bunch of extra code to achieve this either. The solution I'm looking for should simplify the coding.
I know this can be done with INCLUDE statements, but this can become spaghetti-ish too but more importantly we end up running the same code/query multiple times (though modular code is great, I get it). I'm trying to write code that won't be hard to maintain, neat and efficient.
Any options out there?
