Dynamic Text Element web item

Hi all,

I have a web template which contains a Text Element web item and a couple of Checkboxes and Dropdown boxes.

The text element displays the values of the Filters, reflecting the filter condition on the data. Its fine, but after the query is displayed when the user selects filter values from either Dropdown boxes or Checkboxes, this is not reflecting in the TextElement box.

Ofcourse the user can still see the filter conditions by looking at checked boxes and dropdown box. But it is misleading... is there a way to make this TextElement dynamic ? so that it shows all the current filters.

thanks

Raj

    Hi Raj,

    you have to distinguish between the text element web item, which displays the static filters (filters which can't be changed during query navigation) and the filter web item which displays the dynamic filters (which can be changed during query navigation).

    You would need to additionally add the filter web item to your web template.

    Are all text element, checkboxes, and dropdowns using the same data provider?

    Text elements will only show for the data provider that is attached to it.

    Hope that helps.
