RadioButtonGroup with LookupCall [message #1105160] Mon, 09 September 2013 12:48 Go to next message

I have created an AbstractPageWithTable with a variable DossierNr that is properly initialized. From that page I open a form where I created an invisible field to store that DossierNr. On the form there is a radiogroup linked to a master field (DossierNr) and a lookupcall.

    public class KinGroup extends AbstractRadioButtonGroup<Long> {

      protected String getConfiguredLabel() {
        return TEXTS.get("Kin");

      protected Class<? extends LookupCall> getConfiguredLookupCall() {
        return ClientLookupCall.class;

      protected Class<? extends IValueField> getConfiguredMasterField() {
        return DossierNrField.class;

Now i have the following problem:
Whenever I launch the form with following code:
    HeirForm form = new HeirForm();
    if (form.isFormStored()) {

the initialization of the masterfield DossierNr is too late, so the getDataByAll is already called before the setValue call of the DossierNrField is executed.

I also tried the execPrepareLookup of the form, but then the masterfield isn't yet initialized either.

Is there another exec function I should be using or can I trigger the RadioButtonGroup to call the lookup call again? Any ideas?

I assume this is a problem in Scout.

I assume that if you change your RadioButtonGroup for a SmartField this works, isn't it?
I assume that in this case the call (getDataByAll(..) on the LookupCall) occurs later... (when the DossierNr value has been initialized)

Your problem is that an AbstractRadioButtonGroup need to make the call during the form initialization to create the corresponding buttons (this is when you call "new HeirForm()")

Can you try to (I did not try it):

Store your property in a form variable: m_dossierNr.

Pass the value from your table page to your constructor:
HeirForm form = new HeirForm(getDossierNr());

Add new constructors on you form:
  public DesktopForm(Long dossierNr) throws ProcessingException {
    m_dossierNr = dossierNr

In the execPrepareLookup of you lookupcall, set the dossierNr on the call (it is contained in m_dossierNr instead of on the hidden master field).

Let me know if it works, otherwise I will try to reproduce your case on my computer.

Hi Jeremie.
That did the trick. I had already found a workaround by calling an execPrepareLookup in the form class that I could override at form instantiation
	HeirForm form = new HeirForm() {

	  protected void execPrepareLookup(LookupCall call) {
		ClientLookupCall clLookup = (ClientLookupCall) call;

, but your sollution is much more elegant and easier to use when instantiated in multiple locations. Thx!!
