rbf_setChecked() does not fire an onChange for checkbox fiel

Posted by IramK on 05-Apr-2016 06:51

Hello,

I am currently using the rbf_setChecked() client side function provided by Rollbase and I noticed that on programmatically setting a checkbox to its checked state, it doesn't fire the onchange event of the field. Is this how it is supposed to be work? Kindly let me know how I can trigger an onchange for that field programmatically.

Cheers.

Iram

This has been fixed in the 4.3 release, thus available in the latest release too

Hi Iram,

I am not able to reproduce this scenario. I have used the following code.

rbf_setChecked("CheckBox",true);

And I am able to trigger the function which is defined in onChange event of checkbox field . Please let me know which version of Rollbase you are using. I have tested in Rollbase 4.1 Private Cloud.

Regards,
Shiva

Hello Shiva,

This doesn't work properly on a set of checkboxes i.e. group of checkboxes. Please try the same on a group of checkboxes and let me know if you can't find the issue.

Version: 4.0.4.0

Cheers.

I just tried the same in Rollbase 4.0.4 but not able to reproduce.

Please find the attached screenshots.

Are you clicking on it manually or performing the click programmatically? Please refer to my question again: rbf_setChecked() and programmatically.

Cheers.

Hi Iram,

For my second comment I haven't used rbf_setChecked() API , since this API can be applied only for a checkbox field and not for group of checkboxes. Please let me know how you are applying rbf_setChecked method on group of checkboxes.

More details on rbf_setChecked() API

Hello [mention:efd18cd3210243c3a2645cbe9409d974:e9ed411860ed4f2ba0265705b8793d05],

Thanks for your reply. It doesn't explicitly specify in the documentation that you cannot apply it on a group of checkboxes. I am getting all the corresponding checkbox ids from their respective codes using rbf_getIdByCode() function and the way I am trying to perform rbf_setChecked on a group of checkboxes is given below. Let me know if there are any questions.

Cheers.

Iram

// I would like to select all the checkboxes
var checkboxArray = [1,5,10,25,50]; // 1,5,10,25,50 are the checkbox codes for each checkbox item 
for(var y = 0; y < checkboxArray.length; y++)
{
// Getting all the ID's of the checkbox items from their codes
rbf_getIdByCode("checkBoxTestObject", "checkboxArr", checkboxArray[y], function task_IdCallback(returnedID){
rbf_setChecked("checkboxArr_" + returnedID, true);
});
}

Hi Iram,

Thanks for sharing the code. Yes "onClick" event is not firing when  group of checboxes field is used. I will raise a defect for this and let you know ETA very soon.

Note: If you are trying to check the single value in checkbox group its better to use rbf_setFieldValue(fieldname, value) API instead of rbf_setChecked().

Shiva

Thanks Shiva for confirming this. Unfortunately I am selecting all the values in that checkbox field and would like to use rbf_setChecked() on all those fields in this case. Would this fix be made a part of V4.2 release? Kindly let me know.

Cheers.
