Button Prompts in Cognos 10

One of the features I’ve always wanted is buttons that set parameters. The existing prompt buttons just serve to provide navigation features to Cognos reports. You can’t, for instance, press the “Mountaineering Equipment” button and see a report which is filtered by mountaineering. Yes, you can use regular checkbox or radio prompts to do this, but that is hardly the point, is it? I want good, old fashioned buttons!

Consider the following screenshot:
report with buttons

There are buttons going across the top, to let the user select which product line, and buttons going down the left to let the user select how he wants to view the report (xtab, bar, or column).

It would be possible to use standard checkbox or radio prompts with this, but it wouldn’t look nearly as good. Some developers may be tempted to manually create the buttons with extensive use of HTML items. It would work, a certain developer (who will remain anonymous here) used that method for a series of reports and I still get calls asking how to add or remove buttons.

Instead, it is infinitely easier to write JS function that creates the button elements on the fly based on an existing prompt.

Read the following JS (10.2 only):

<script>

/*
  * Function: addEvent
  * Author: Dan Fruendel
  * Attachs an event or adds an event listener depending on the browser.
  */
var
  addEvent = function(element, event, func)
  {
    if(element.addEventListener)
    {
      addEvent = function(element, event, func)
      {
        element.addEventListener(event, func, false);
        return true;
      };
    }
    else if(element.attachEvent)
    {
      addEvent = function(element, event, func)
      {
        return element.attachEvent("on" + event, func);
      };
    }
    else
    {
      addEvent = function(element, event, func)
      {
        var oldEventHandler = element['on' + event];
        element['on' + event] = function()
        {
          //using .apply to pass on anything this function gets.
          if(typeof(oldEventHandler) === "function")
          {
            oldEventHandler.apply(element, arguments);
          }
          func.apply(element, arguments);
        }
        return true;
      };
    }
    return addEvent(element, event, func);
  }
/*

var paulScripts = {}
  , oCR = cognos.Report.getReport("_THIS_");

paulScripts.getSource = function()
{
    var targ;
    if (!e) var e = window.event;
    if(!e) return false;
    if (e.target) targ = e.target;
    else if (e.srcElement) targ = e.srcElement;
    if (targ.nodeType == 3) // defeat Safari bug
      targ = targ.parentNode;
    return targ;
}

paulScripts.getControl = function(promptName) {
  return oCR.prompt.getControlByName(promptName);
}

paulScripts.reprompt = function(){

</script>

Look complicated? It’s actually not complicated at all. The first function there was written by a friend (and if you think I’m good at JS… he’s the kind of person to look at some code, think for 5 minutes and rewrite it using half the lines and make it run several times faster), it allows you to attach events in different browsers. The getSource function is there because some browsers have issues with THIS. getControl is the 10.2 method of identifying the referenced prompt object. The reprompt function is simply the way I force the report to refresh (on checkbox prompts, for instance).

The meat of the function is in the addButton function. First it finds the prompt object you’re referencing (using 10.2 methods, needs a rewrite if using in earlier versions). Next it determines if the prompt is a checkbox or radio. If it’s neither, the function exits. Then it starts creating the actual button elements. It generates an array of all of the elements in the prompt, then for each one creates a button using the display value and hides the original element. Each generated button has a click function that will, in turn, click on the correct checkbox or radio in the original prompt.

The buttons each have a class based on if it’s selected or not. Clicking on the button will alternate between selected/unselected. The style will have to be included in an HTML item as well. Each style must have three entries, styleName for the top box, styleNameSelected for selected buttons, and styleNameUnselected for unselected buttons.

If the reprompt option is set to true, then it will add the reprompt function to the validator, essentially making it an autosubmit prompt.

Finally, if this is a checkbox group, it will add functions to the select and deselect all links under the prompt.

To use the prompt, it’s then a simple matter of creating your prompt object on the page, naming it, and calling the function. So in the above screenshot there are two prompts on the page. A multiselect checkbox (based on the product line dimension) above the crosstab, and a radio button (with static choices) to the left. The function is called twice, once for each prompt. The reprompt flag is set for the checkbox prompt, while the radio is set to autosubmit in the report.

I wrote some simple CSS to highlight the buttons when selected:

<style>
.Vertical{
  width:'';
  height:'';
}

.VerticalUnselected{
  padding:2px 10px 3px 10px;
  margin-right:7px;
  background-image:url(../reportstyles/images/button_bg.png);
  background-position:left top;
  background-repeat:repeat-x;
  background-color:#EFEFEF;
  color:#000000;
  font-size:10pt;
  font-weight:normal;
  text-align:center;
  border:1px solid #92afc2;
  width: 75px;
  display:block;
}

.VerticalSelected{
  padding:2px 10px 3px 10px;
  margin-right:7px;
  background-image:url(../reportstyles/images/button_bg.png);
  background-position:left top;
  background-repeat:repeat-x;
  background-color:#A0AFEB;
  color:#000000;
  font-size:10pt;
  font-weight:normal;
  text-align:center;
  border:1px solid #92afc2;
  width: 75px;
  display:block;
}

.Horizontal{
  width:0;
  height:0;
  white-space:nowrap;
}

.HorizontalUnselected{
  padding:2px 10px 3px 10px;
  margin-right:7px;
  background-image:url(../reportstyles/images/button_bg.png);
  background-position:left top;
  background-repeat:repeat-x;
  background-color:#EFEFEF;
  color:#000000;
  font-size:10pt;
  font-weight:normal;
  text-align:center;
  border:1px solid #92afc2;
}

.HorizontalSelected{
  padding:2px 10px 3px 10px;
  margin-right:7px;
  background-image:url(../reportstyles/images/button_bg.png);
  background-position:left top;
  background-repeat:repeat-x;
  background-color:#A0AFEB;
  color:#000000;
  font-size:10pt;
  font-weight:normal;
  text-align:center;
  border:1px solid #92afc2;
}

</style>

Each button group can have it’s own unique style, if so desired. Just remember to write the CSS for each one.

Ultimately the report consists of 2 prompts, 2 graphs, a crosstab, a conditional block and a single HTML item.
