Read data from custom widget. [message #122413] Tue, 24 February 2009 12:43 Go to next message

Hello.
I have created a custom widget which is built on qooxdoo and consists of
two lists. I can populate one of the lists from the java code, but how
do I read data from the list to the RAP application?

I have looked at the google maps example and they are using the function
readData in the LCA-file. But the example was to complex for me to fully
understand.

So my question is how do I read a variable from the javascript?
I would appreciate if someone could post an simple example of a custom
widget that reads data from the qooxdoo code.

Hi Erik,
here is a simple code that put in the request the value of your variable
"this.myParam" and send the request to the server:
------------
var widgetManager = org.eclipse.swt.WidgetManager.getInstance();
var req = org.eclipse.swt.Request.getInstance();
var id = widgetManager.findIdByWidget( this );
req.addParameter( id + ".myParam", this.myParam );
req.send();
-------------
In your LCA#readData, you can read this parameter from the request:
-------------
String value = WidgetLCAUtil.readPropertyValue( widget, "myParam" );
if( value != null ) {
// do something if the parameter is found
}

Hope that this will help.
Best,
Ivan

Hi thank you for the example code.
However I have a problem related to this topic.

I wan't to be able to call my qooxdoo function and read my variable at a
given time.
So how do I call a function in qooxdoo from the LCA?

Hi Erik,
in your LCA#renderChanges method you can use:
JSWriter writer = JSWriter.getWriterFor( widget );
writer.call(......) or writer.callStatic(......) depend on your function.

Check the existing RAP LCAs for more details.
Best,
Ivan

LCA-file again and so on). This is taking alot of resources. Is it
possible to get around this problem?

Hi Erik,
I do not understand why you call writer.call(); from LCA#readData? The
LCA#readData method is called to get the data from the JavaScript.
LCA#renderChanges is the place to call the JavaScript function.

Ivan

Thank you for your reply.
Unfortunately this did not fix my problem with the infinity loop.

To give you a clear view of what I am doing:
LCA file:

public void renderChanges(Widget widget) throws IOException
{

JSWriter writer = JSWriter.getWriterFor(widget);
try {
writer.call("readItem", null);
} catch (IOException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
}
public void readData(Widget widget)
{
Dnd dnd = (Dnd) widget;
String location = WidgetLCAUtil.readPropertyValue(dnd, "listan" );
System.out.println(location);
}

javascript file:
readItem: function()
{
var test = "FREDD";
var widgetManager = org.eclipse.swt.WidgetManager.getInstance();
var req = org.eclipse.swt.Request.getInstance();
var id = widgetManager.findIdByWidget( this );
req.addParameter( id + ".listan", test );
req.send();
},


This code will perform a infinite loop of calls to the readItem function
in the javascript file.

Hi Erik,

with your code it is normal to go into infinity loop. I will suggest the
following:
1. When there is a change in the your JavaScript variable - send the new
value to the server with the code in readItem function.
2. Store the new value in your server-side Dnd widget in LCA#readData.
2. When you need to access this value just get it from your server-side
Dnd widget directly.

Best,
Ivan
