Cross Browser Update for Copy Logic on AXES Documentation

Post by rigor » 15 Jun 2022, 20:14

Hi,

Good day.

I've encountered an issue with the current Javascript Copy Logic used in 2 of the Lansa Axes Documentation for USERENV and Generic Coding(https://axesdocs.lansa.com.au/index.php ... RhdGEiXQ==) and Iterating through subfiles entries(https://axesdocs.lansa.com.au/index.ph ... es-entries).

These 2 AXES Documentation both used window.clipboardData logic which works on IE but doesn't work on Chrome or Firefox. I've also confirmed this while investigating online.
Please see sample logic below:

Code: Select all

window.clipboardData.clearData();

if (sClipData != "") window.clipboardData.setData("Text",sClipData);
I've done some research and investigation and found logic that works on Lansa AXES and can also work on Cross-Browser. If it is ok with you, I would like to suggest to maybe update the current Lansa Axes Documentation for this? Thanks.
Please see logic below:
Iterating through subfiles entries - Updated Logic(https://axesdocs.lansa.com.au/index.ph ... es-entries)

Code: Select all

var sClipData = "";

var sTab = "\t";

var iSFLIndex = 1;

var oEmployee = FIELDS("Employee",iSFLIndex);

while (oEmployee !== null)

{

var oSurname = FIELDS("Surname",iSFLIndex);

var oGivenName = FIELDS("Given_Name",iSFLIndex);

sClipData += oEmployee.getValue() + sTab;

if (oSurname !== null) sClipData += oSurname.getValue() + sTab;

else sClipData += "UNKNOWN" + sTab;

if (oGivenName !== null) sClipData += oGivenName.getValue() + sTab;

else sClipData += "UNKNOWN" + sTab;

sClipData += "\n";

iSFLIndex += 1;

oEmployee = FIELDS("Employee",iSFLIndex);

}

        var textArea = document.createElement("textarea");
        textArea.value = sClipData;
        textArea.style.opacity = "0"; 
        document.body.appendChild(textArea);
        textArea.focus();
        textArea.select();

        try {
            var successful = document.execCommand('copy');
            var msg = successful ? 'successful' : 'unsuccessful';
            alert('Copying text command was ' + msg);
        } catch (err) {
            alert('Unable to copy value , error : ' + err.message);
        }

        document.body.removeChild(textArea);
USERENV and Generic Coding(https://axesdocs.lansa.com.au/index.php ... RhdGEiXQ==)

Code: Select all

sendSubfiletoClipBoard : function(oP)

{
var iSFLIndex = 0;
var iLimit = oP.sendFields.length;
var sClipData = "";
var sTab = "\t";
var sNL = "\n";
var oiterField = null;

iSFLIndex = 1;
oiterField = oP.ENV.FIELDS(oP.iterField,iSFLIndex);

while (oiterField !== null)
{
for (var i = 0; i < iLimit; i++)
{
var osendField = oP.ENV.FIELDS(oP.sendFields[i],iSFLIndex);
if (osendField !== null) sClipData += osendField.getValue() + sTab;
else sClipData += oP.notFound + sTab;
}

sClipData += sNL;
iSFLIndex += 1;
oiterField = oP.ENV.FIELDS(oP.iterField,iSFLIndex);
}

//window.clipboardData.clearData();
//if (sClipData !== "") window.clipboardData.setData("Text",sClipData);
alert(sClipData);

        var textArea = document.createElement("textarea");
        textArea.value = sClipData;
        textArea.style.opacity = "0"; 
        document.body.appendChild(textArea);

        textArea.select();

        try {
            var successful = document.execCommand('copy');
            var msg = successful ? 'successful' : 'unsuccessful';
            alert('Copying text command was ' + msg);
        } catch (err) {
            alert('Unable to copy value , error : ' + err.message);
        }

        document.body.removeChild(textArea);
