Input Control filtering in Offline Mode


This question relates to using a Webi report on the iPad. Current version is installed on the iPad.

I presumed when an Input Control (IC) is used, the data from the query is stored within the microcube of the document.

So when an IC filter value is used there is no need to go back to the database and query; the filtering is done by reading the microcube data.

So when I used an Input Control in a document that was being used in offline mode I was surprised when the IC icon showed "All Values" but I cannot open up the Values list to select a value to filter on in the Inout Control. I would have thought it was valid to expect the IC will still work in offline mode as there would be no need to go back to the data source. When making the connection active again the IC works again opening up the list enabling the selection of values to filter by.

So is it right that an IC in offline mode defaults to All Values and you cannot open the list to select a value to filter on?

It's BO v4.0 SP5.
