Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

Can you filter a list with an array in SQL

  • Can you filter a list with an array in SQL

    So I have two lists and the idea is that you multi-select from the first list which creates an array of ids. These id's and then used in a javascript list filter action to filter a second list.

    What happens is that you can pick the first item in list 1 and the list 2 will filter correctly, but when you pick additional items the filter returns nothing.

    Does a list filter by array work in Lists? Am I doing something wrong in defining the Array?

    Any help is appreciated.


    Below is the javascript for filtering the second list

    function grants() {
    var fid = [{dialog.Object}.getValue('Funding')];
    //use \n to create a cr-lf delimited list
    var params = fid+'|||C|array_fid';
    {dialog.object}._filterList('Grants','funding_sources.Fundingsourceid in (:array_fid)','',params);

    Any luck with figuring this out?

      Re: Can you filter a list with an array in SQL

      No, not exactly.

      I did manage to create callbacks that highlight the related rows in a subordinate lists and set the list to an array of those selected rows. So if you had two lists Countries and Cities and you picked two Countries you would get the cities highlighted from Both selected countries. What I have not been able to do is turn that into a filter so it only shows the selected Cities.

      But just showing as "Selected" is fine as this is used as a pick list for a report filter and it actually then allows the user to add combinations. For example you can say give me the Cities in these two Countries, it will highlight the proper Cities and the user can then add other Cities or remove Cities and the report filter runs on the final selected set.

        Here's a fairly simple way to filter a child List based on multiple selections in a parent List. In this case we're using the .setFilter method which takes a JSON object as a filter parameter. The nice part about this is that it's all client based... and so, really fast.

        There's nothing special about the properties or setup of these two lists. The child List is NOT set up as having a parent or explicit filter.

          Hi David,

          Thanks for the video link, I've been working through it. I have the concepts but currently troubleshooting as my list 2 returns nothing at the moment.

          Thanks again.

            Shout if it's not working for you. Some of this was odd. The whole concept was straight forward but the incoming values threw me right off.
