input field in listview cell


I have a listview, and I want one of the cells to be editable, without going to the detail screen.

I have follow this example.

But I don´t know exactly what/how to write, so the detail screen works.

And if I navigate throw other screen the data does not get lost.

editBox = $("#" + items[i].getKey());

htmlEditBox = editBox.find('div').eq(3).html();

htmlEditBox = "<a id ='" + items[i].getKey() + "' >" +

"<input type='number' + // id='" + items[i].getKey() +

// "' sup_html_type='number' sup_max_length='32767' sup_num_of_decimals='0' onblur='validateControl('Planning_Book', 'pronosticokey', this)'>"+

"' sup_html_type='number' sup_max_length='32767' sup_num_of_decimals='0' value='"+


+"'> </a>";

It is written in sup 2.1.3 for an HWC app.

Thank you very much.

    If above screenshot was something you want, I think it's doable.

    1. basically, you need to create your own listview

    and in the the listview cell do something like

    /Use this method to add custom code to a forward screen transition. If you return false, the screen

    //transition will not occur.

    function customBeforeNavigateForward(screenKey, destScreenKey) {

    if (destScreenKey == 'All_States'){


    //grab the results from our object query

    var message = getCurrentMessageValueCollection();

    var itemList = message.getData("States");

    var items = itemList.getValue();

    var numOfItems = items.length;

    var i = 0;

    //iterate through the results and build our list

    var htmlOutput = '<div><ul id="stateListView" data-role="listview" data-theme="a" data-filter="true" data-inset="true">';

    var firstChar = '';

    while ( i < numOfItems ){

    var currItem= items[i];

    var stateName = currItem.getData("States_state_name_attribKey").getValue();

    var stateCapital = currItem.getData("States_state_capital_attribKey").getValue();

    var stateCountry = currItem.getData("States_country_attribKey").getValue();

    //i'll assume it's sorted, but you can't do that in the real world

    var currFirstChar = stateName.charAt(0);

    if (currFirstChar != firstChar){

    firstChar = currFirstChar;

    htmlOutput += '<li data-role="list-divider" data-theme="i">'

    htmlOutput += firstChar;

    htmlOutput += '</li>'


    htmlOutput += '<li> <input class="right editableCell " type="text" id="'+currItem.getKey() +'" sup_html_type="text" sup_max_length="32767" sup_num_of_decimals="0" value="'+ stateName +'"/><a id ="' + currItem.getKey() + '" class="listClick">';

    htmlOutput += '<h3>' + stateName + '</h3>';

    htmlOutput += '<p>' + stateCapital + '</p>';

    htmlOutput += '</a></li>';



    htmlOutput += '</ul></div>';



    alert("please save me.");



    currListDivID = $(this).parent().parent();


    navigateForward("State_Detail", );



    return true;


    2. For save your edited value, in the above alert("please save me.") function,

    I would try to find the input id which match to the item key and get item from workflow message and then set the value to update workflow message, so when navigate to other screens, the value will be kept.

    I haven't tried it by myself , but in theory, it should work. As for the how listview UI part, by using css ,you would make it look like what you want.

    Hope it help
