TAB title is session variable - how to update?
« on: June 20, 2021, 02:12:39 AM »
Hi,

My tab titles is a session variable.
The tabs are not available as fields to update via the client side RESET list

Is it a button on the same form as the Tab title that is causing the session variable to update?
If you're happy with your security, then so are the bad guys

Hello DonnEdwards

Not a button specifically, there are fields on the form that change and that influences the TAB label/text

I did get it working with some of the Tab types but not all and I know Bruce is looking at a possible plan

I am specifically trying to get it working with the accordion tab



regards

Hi Johan,

noting that you are using the Accordion tab is a useful detail.
That said, in the 12.20 build which is now up I've added some documentation (and code) for the JavaScript widget to do this. See
https://www.capesoft.com/docs/NetTalk12/NetTalkWebBasic.htm#ntFormWidget

By using this code it should work, regardless of the tab type.

Cheers
Bruce

Hi Bruce

Unsure of how to specify which TAB gets the altered header?

Assuming this is the correct one to use

setTabHeadingText   Set the heading text for a tab   
p_web.ntForm(loc:formname,'setTabHeadingText','Some heading')


thanks

Johan

As discussed in yesterday's webinar, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AIBj6qrpk0)
the doc is inaccurate. It should read;

p_web.ntForm(loc:formname,'setTabHeadingText',index,'Some heading')

Hi Bruce

I have tried , but it's not happy with the extra parameter
I also tried to switch around the parameter in case the sequence caused a type issue

     p_web.ntForm(loc:formname,'setTabHeadingText',0,'Some heading')     
     p_web.ntForm(loc:formname,'setTabHeadingText',1,'Another heading Some heading')     
     p_web.ntForm(loc:formname,0,'setTabHeadingText','Some heading')     
     p_web.ntForm(loc:formname,1,'setTabHeadingText','Another heading Some heading')     
     p_web.ntForm(loc:formname,'setTabHeadingText',index,'Some heading')
