Scripts on pages with dates

It is possible to use scripts on pages with data (Datas.aspx and DataDetail.aspx) for class or query. In this way you can easily extend by your required functionality:

  • you cab add a new button to the toolbar for execution of your actions
  • respond to actions on the page
  • add a new control to a page for displaying further information
  • influence column behaviour (hide the column or set it in read-only mode)

Scripting is not intended for supressing ObjectGears system functionality, but for extension by your functions.

Each event can be defined in the script only once. It is not wrong if some event is not defined. You can create further functions for better transparency. However, these functions cannot collide with event names.

There are available following events for scripts:

In Datas.aspx:

Event Description
OnLoad Event is triggered after loading the page on server. It corresponds to ASP.NET event OnLoad.
OnCreateFilter Event is triggered after creating filtering object. Here you can influence searched records.
OnPreRender Event is triggered after rendering the page on server. It corresponds to ASP.NET event OnPreRender.

In DataDetail.aspx:

Event Description
OnLoad Event is triggered after loading the page on server. It corresponds to ASP.NET event OnLoad.
OnAfterLoadColumns Event is triggered after loading the columns. Here you can influence, wheather they will be displayed or in read-only mode.
OnBeforeBinding Event is triggered before setting up values from the entity (read from the database) into controls in the page. The event can be used for initialization of controls (e.g. list of combobox values).
OnAfterBinding Event is triggered after finishing binding of data from the entity into controls. Use the event for the final set up of controls or set up of your controls.
OnAfterSave Event is triggered after saving page data. In case of an error in the script saving data is not cancelled.
OnPreRender Event is triggered after rendering the page on server. It corresponds to ASP.NET event OnPreRender.

Description of events

All the events are in the script defined in the same way, just with a different name of function.

Example of event definition:

function OnPreRender()
{
    ...
}

Control elements

It is necessary to know names of the controls in order to use them in scripts. The following table contains the list of available names.

In Datas.aspx:

Type Code of the control element Description
ToolbarButton  backButton Button Back in the toolbar.
HyperLinkButton newButton Button New in the toolbar.
ToolbarButton reloadButton Button Reload in the toolbar.

HyperLinkButton newButtonAsNew Button Back in the toolbar.
HyperLinkButton archive Button Archive in the toolbar.
HyperLinkButton archiveDetail Button Detail archive in the toolbar.

Examples

Inserting a control in the page

The script inserts a button into the toolbar, that will display an information text after clicking on it.

function OnLoad()
{
    OGForm.Toolbar.CreateButton( 'b1', 'Button', './images/archive.png');
}

function b1_Click()
{
    OGForm.SetSuccess( 'You have clicked on B1 button');
}

Set up of button Back

You can suppress default behaviour of the button by its set up. You can change the text in the button, its icon, URL (used when clicking on button) and visibility.

Set the properties in the event OnLoad.

function OnLoad()
{
    var b = OGForm.GetControl('backButton');
    b.Visible = true;
    b.Text = 'Back to start';
    b.NavigateUrl = 'Datas.aspx?CId=85';
}
