I'm going through the Thingworx 5.0 Workbook. It really falls down when it comes to describing how to create mashups and bind widgets to data. I was trying to come up with a very simple example for this. I thought that displaying a list of Vending Machines and selecting a vending machine from the list to display its current temperature would be a fairly simply exercise. So this is what i'm trying to accomplish.
Typically, the workbook is used during in-person training sessions where an instructor will demonstrate how to create
Mashupsand bind data to widgets. For a more visual learning experience, I recommend following the introductory ThingWorx course available from PTC eLearning.
To answer your specific question, you won't use the SelectedRowsChanged
Event, as non exists for
GetProperties(). Instead, you'll use this same
Event, but for the
Service, which is populating the List. Then, as the selected rows change (i.e. you select entities), the
Eventwill fire and execute
This is perfect and exactly what I needed.
Funny it uses a very similar exercise as the one i was trying to put together.
Just FYI, there are lots of very helpful videos on the Suport/Video tutorials tab.
There is a trick there, the videos you see when entering the Video Tutorial page are only a small subset from the available videos.
To display them all, delete ThingWorx from the Search box, then press Search. Now wait some seconds (5-10) and you will see that the right video list scrollbar becomes very small and you will be able to scroll through a much, much larger Videos collection.
Hope it helps,
