Is it possible to show via quickforms on a server webpage the content based on a selection that is done on this same page?
What I want to do is select something from a list, then use that to fill a second list and select from that, and then show plots based on both selections.
This is possible by making separate wrapped metanodes for each selection action and final plots. But then I have have to go from one page to the next.
Thanks in advance, Patrick
unfortunately this works only page by page at the moment. However, this would be a nice addition to the WebPortal functionality. I’ll add a +1 to the feature request.
This WebPortal functionality, is that also open source, with possible contributions from the “community”?
no the webportal is part of our commercial offerings.
Thats why it is also not open source.
Best wishes, Iris
Hum, pitty. Could be a showstopper if our UX developers define this is mandatory requirement.
If I understand your use case correctly there might also be a way to simply use our existing nodes, if you are using filters instead of selections (or a combination of both). With the next release of the Analytics Platform (which is scheduled for next week) we are including a new Value Filter node, which can filter based on nominal values (in addition to the Slider Filter which filters numerical features). If you combine that with a table view and your plots maybe you can already fulfil this use case.
Is such a filter node then directly changing the chained output and thus next node when changing the items to include/exclude in this filter, before pressing the apply button?
For this to work it is important that the node reacting to filter events needs to have the column that the filter was applied on at an input port.
If you check the output of the filter node you will see that the data was not changed, only a filter definition was applied to the appropriate column in the table spec. A node reacting to filter events needs to ‘see’ this definition.
After changing a filter in a view the new values are preserved in the filter definition. If you actually want to filter a table in the workflow you can use the Filter Apply node for that.
Ok thanks, I will wait for new release and will then check what is possible.
