    Default Tabbed UI Buttons - Refresh

    Does anyone know how to refresh a tabbed UI so that if a button is based on a session variable the button action will behave accordingly? Is there another solution besides server variables to turn on or off a button?

    Thanks,

    Rod

    I hope you get an answer to this because turning on buttons has been killing me. Remember that you can always use css to declare something visible or hidden.

    Has anyone found a solution to this yet. I have several button that open grids, in the button text I have a count of item in that grid. Based on what happens when the grid is open the count changes. But the count on the button always stays with the count when the Tabbed UI was opened and does not refresh unless you refresh the entire page.

    i do not know how you set the count on the button, but the text on the button can be reached from the component contained in the tabbedui.
    for the button text give the name as follows
    <span id="something">name_you_want_to_give</span>
    and in the component you add javascript code where and when you want to change the text
    document.getelementById("the_name_you_gave_in_span").innerHTML="something new to display";

    it is possible and probably best to wrap this in an if end if code bloc as
    var pp = document.getElementById("the_name");
    if (pp) {
    pp.innerHTML="something";
    }
    this might avoid error popping up when the span id is naked.

    Here is the code I use in the button to label it and pull the count.

    Code:
    Transport Not Scheduled
    <br><%a5 
    dim tc as C
    tc=str(tablecount("[PathAlias.ADB_Path]\used_inventory","Recon_Status='1) Transport Not Scheduled'.AND. left(Status,1)<>'9'"))
    ?tc %>
    How do I turn that into a javascript string?

    if you leave that in and when the grid functions is there a place to get the count? then you can reach out to change the label then.

    I was thinking that if I inserted the code again it would cause it to refresh. But with the multiple new lines and " and ' I wasn't sure how to build a javascript string that would match.

    okay here is one way to do
    make the button label as <span id ="transport">Transport</span>
    then in your grid add code after grid execute or grid initialize do an ajaxcallback to calculate the number and send a javascript code to change that.
    and again whenever you run an ajaxcallback update that number.
    if you need more assistance you need to post a video or something. people will help you.

    edit: there is no render complete on grids only in dialogs
    please see the change to grid initialize or grid execute

    That worked. Thanks. I'm posting the code for others who might have this issue

    in the Client side events
    afterGridsubmit
    Action Javascript
    Ajaxcallback

    here is the xbasic function

    Code:
    function newcount as c (e as p)
    
    
    dim id as c 
    id = "trans_not_scheduled"
    dim html as C
    html="Transport Not Scheduled<br>"
    html=html+str(tablecount("[PathAlias.ADB_Path]\used_inventory","Recon_Status='1) Transport Not Scheduled'.AND. left(Status,1)<>'9'"))
    dim js as c 
    js = "$('" + id + "').innerHTML = '"+js_escape(html)+"';"
    
    
    
    
    newcount=js
    
    
    end function
