I’ve got a bunch of dropdown views in a flex repeater. Each option has a db query binding.
I want to refresh them on receipt of a message so I’m using this script.
for inst in self.props.instances:
system.perspective.print(inst.caption) # Prints the dropdown label.
system.perspective.print(inst) # Print the binding object.
inst.refreshBinding("ddOptions") # Update the dropdown param binding.
It prints the label caption and the binding object for the first dropdown view but doesn’t do the rest of them.
What have I missed?
refreshBinding is a Component-scoped function, not a property-scoped function. So you would use it like so:
for x in range(len(self.props.instances)):
self is a reference to the component while in a Message Handler.
That works, thanks! I’m not familiar with that syntax so I’ll have to study it.
Was that a quick midnight forum check before you get some sleep? I’m in Ireland so you got my day off to a good start.
The syntax boils down to obtaining a Perspective component to act on, and then providing the path of the binding to refresh. If you need to update a binding on a different component, you can do that as well:
