Datawindow w/ multiple retrieval arguments

Posted on 2008-10-07

Hi,
Using PB10.5

I have a datawindow on a window that has 1 retrieval argument "department". The department is selected from a dropdownlistbox and this event fills the datawindow.  I would like to give the user an option to fill the datawindow based on a different retrieval argument "name".  So If the user selects a department then the datawindow fills where the department = :dept, and If the user enters a name in a textbox then the datawindow fills where name = :name.  
Is there a way to accomplish this?

thx,
Dave

as per your example, give two arguments in design time and change your where clause like this...

where ( department = :arg1 or :arg1 = 'all')
and (name = :arg2 or :arg2 = 'all' )

Now based on condition possible arguments to your datawindow can be..

dw_1.retrieve('SALES', 'all')....for dept 'SALES'  & all managers
dw_1.retrieve('SALES', 'JAMES')....for dept 'SALES' dept & manager JAMES
dw_1.retrieve('all', 'JAMES')....for all depts & manager JAMES
dw_1.retrieve('all', 'all')....for all dept & all managers

Sandeep
