(Relatively) newbie question: can someone give me an example of how to use onTabChange correctly? (proper syntax and what situations it would be good for, etc.)

When I tried it here, it just hid the tabs other than the first one... :?

Have a look here: ... e0e7bfb752 for the history of this new feature.

The onTabChange event will fire when the user selects another tab.

The onTabChange event will automatically receive 1 parameter, which is the tabIndex of the tab the user was on BEFORE he selected another tab.

Inside the onTabChange event you can get the name of the tabPanel and the form the tabPanel is on, using
Code: Select all
var _form = application.getMethodTriggerFormName
var _element = application.getMethodTriggerElementName

With these two, you can get to the tab that is currently selected, by the following code:
Code: Select all

That will give you the tabIndex of the tab where the user anvigated to.

So, the new event allows you to figure out which tab/form the user navigated away from and to where he/she went.

Did take a look, but it's still not clear to me - and why should all tabs except the first one disappear from the tabpanel when I use that function? :(

Ok, there must be something wrong with me here - now all the tabs show up as expected. Weird! :?

However, when I try this code with a tabpanel with 4 tabs on it:

Code: Select all
var _form = application.getMethodTriggerFormName;
var _element = application.getMethodTriggerElementName;

if ( forms[_form].elements[_element].tabIndex == "1" )
   plugins.dialogs.showInfoDialog( "Info",  "Hello!",  "Ok")

I get the following error:

ConversionError - the undefined value has no properties calling elements (onTabChange, line 5)

and these are the contents of my vars in the debugger:

Code: Select all
_element   function js_getMethodTriggerElementName() {/* java.lang.String js_getMethodTriggerElementName() */}
_form   function js_getMethodTriggerFormName() {/* java.lang.String js_getMethodTriggerFormName() */}

I'm running Servoy Developer v3.5RC6 build 511.

Thanks for shedding some light on this for me! :)

Code: Select all
var _form = application.getMethodTriggerFormName;
var _element = application.getMethodTriggerElementName;

is missing the brackets behind the function...

Should be:
Code: Select all
var _form = application.getMethodTriggerFormName();
var _element = application.getMethodTriggerElementName();

Typed the code from the top of my head, sorry 'bout that..

Thanks for clearing this up, Paul - I should've seen this also. Another thing to add to my learning curve! :wink:

It works as expected now. Thanks for this great feature - you guys keep making our jobs easier all the time.

np, glad to be of service :-)

relationships and null values

PostPosted: Mon Jul 23, 2007 6:17 pm

I have several global relationships based on integer

currentuser_activities: (inner join)
globals.currentuser = user_id
globals.value_1 = open (integer 1/0 field)

In recent rc releases, these relationships now fail if there are NULL values in the foreign integer value (the "open" field in the example).

If all the values in open are 0 or 1, it works fine, but if any values are NULL, it returns no result.

These always used to work fine. Clearly, I should auto-enter a 0, which I can do if necessary -- just wondering if this is a bug or a planned change.

Thanks, greg.

This is not a planned change.
I tried to reproduce this, but in my solution the relation worked fine.
What database are you using?

Please create a small sample solution and enter a case in our support system.
