Editable Temporary InfoTable in Mashup

Editable Temporary InfoTable in Mashup

Hello,

I am looking to have a service create a blank infotable and then put that infotable into a grid in a mashup. I then want to allow uses to add or delete rows within that temporary infotable from the mashup.

I have tried to accomplish this but I am getting mixed up in how to have the infotable in the grid refreshed after adding or deleting a row using services.

Any direction would be helpful.

Thank you,

Mike

Editable Temporary InfoTable in Mashup

Hi Mike,

Would you mind explaining the use case for this temporary InfoTable?

Adam,

Looking to have a 'add' and 'remove' function for certain options in a list on a mashup and I want those choices to then be filled in to a table to visualize the options the user has selected. Once they are done choosing, they will hit a submit button and those choices will be permanently added to a different table.

Thank you,

Mike

Mike,

Keep in mind, when modifying an

InfoTable

you need to pass the entire

InfoTable

 to the

Service

 adding or deleting rows. Presumably, you'll use two

Services

, one to add and one to remove a row, which will require you to pass the resulting

InfoTable

 back and forth between the two

Services

.


Here's sample code for an AddEntry() 

Service

 which takes an

InfoTable

 and two strings as input:


// If no InfoTable exists, create one

if (!myInfoTable) {

  result = Resources["InfoTableFunctions"].CreateInfoTableFromDataShape({

    dataShapeName: "EntityList",

    infoTableName: "myInfoTable"

  });

  

  // Add row to InfoTable

  result.AddRow();

}


else {

  // Otherwise, add row to InfoTable and return it

  myInfoTable.AddRow({ name: name, description: description });

  result = myInfoTable;

}

Adam,

I took your advice and I have the services setup, however the inputs being brought into the service aren't being added to the table. The service adds a row, but it just lists a blank row. I have put my code below. The "Add_Vocabulary_Term" and "Selected_Add_Tag" are string inputs from another part of the mashup (lists that our bound from the selected row). Selected_Tag_List is the table being brought in.

if(Add_Boolean==true){
    Selected_Tag_List.AddRow({
        Vocabulary: Add_Vocabulary_Term,
        Term: Selected_Add_Tag
    })
    var result=Selected_Tag_List
    }
else if(Remove_Boolean==true){
   var tableLength = Selected_Tag_List.getRowCount();

for (var x = 0; x < tableLength; x++) {
    if(Selected_Remove_Tag==Selected_Tag_List.rows.Term){
        Selected_Tag_List.RemoveRow(x)
    }
}
    var result=Selected_Tag_List
}
