I am trying to send an array of values to a multi select drop down. I've tried using the javascript in the WebFOCUS documentation

The code below works in an html page perfectly. However, when I add the html page to a portal page, it no longer works. Not sure if anyone knows of a work around for this.

  function button2_onclick(event) {
   var arr = [];
   arr.push('ITALY');
   arr.push('JAPAN');
   IbComposer_setCurrentSelection('listbox1',arr,'false');
}

Hi Berny,

Did you check for javascript errors in the browser's console, under developer tools (F12) ?

Didn't think of that. Let me set up a simple file and check it with the developer tools.

I set up a new page in a new portal and everything worked perfectly. Not sure what I was doing previously that was causing the Javascript to break, but everything is working fine now. Thanks!

Just an FYI, when developer tools is on, there is every chance that the browser cache is disabled.

May be an answer to why its working now.

js, css, etc may have been refreshed.
