OpenViewModal - method of object PmPanel
The method opens viewer of another object in the modal window.
This method is obsolete (but functional), not functional in modern Web browsers therefore it is better to use the PmPanel.OpenView method. See How to work with modal windows.
OpenViewModal(sObjectPath As String, [sOptions As String], [sParams As String], [vArguments As Variant]) As Variant
val = oPanel.OpenViewModal(sObjectPath, sOptions, sParams, vArguments)
| sObjectPath||(String) Path (relative or absolute) to the object or component whose viewer will be opened. |
For detailed description see sObjectPath.
| sOptions||[optional] (String) The parameters transferred to the viewer. These define where and how to open the viewer. |
Entries are in format PmNamedValues, for example "target:_blank;modal:1;".
For detailed description see sOptions.
| sParams||[optional] (String) Parameters transferred to the object that is to be viewed by the corresponding viewer. |
Entries are in format PmNamedValues, for example "name1:value1;name2:value2;".
For detailed description see sParams.
| vArguments||[optional] (Variant) The value that is automatically passed to the Arguments property. The value of this property is typically read in the onPanelStartEnd event and it serves for passing the input data to the opened window directly from the script.|
The method returns the Empty
value if the Cancel
key) is pressed in the modal window. The Pm.IsValid
method can be used for testing.
If the OK button is pressed then the value entered in this window is returned (see the note below).
The method is synchronous, i.e. the script continues with the following statement after the modal window is terminated. For opening the viewer the permission has to be set
in the opening object. For example for PmPanel
object there is permission PanelOpen
Input and output values for modal PmPanel
Two properties are essential for modal opening of PmPanel viewer:
: Input value for opening modal vindow. This value is copied from the vArguments
parameter of this method.
: Output value defined by closing the modal window by the OK
button. In such case the value present in this property is returned as ouitput value of this method.
This concept allows to create the windows (the forms) where the panel content is not directly connected (by bindings, script) with the application, but the whole initial state of the window is passed by the input parameter and the whole state after editing the content is passed by the return value.
For passing multiple values by a single parameter the VBScript.Array method can be used easily.
The method can also be called in the graphic item events for Web panels
Opens panel in a new modal window and sets both the value of the parameter nmb
of the panel and the array of 2 values in the parameter vArguments. Followed by the check, whether the modal window has transferred the reversal value (using the PmiRoot.ReturnValue
property) after the termination (e.g. by the OK
button). If yes, the debug entry of this value is written into the INFO
system. This script can be, for example, in the onButtonUp
event of the PmiButton
Script code calling the modal window.
a0 = "text 0"
a1 = 5
