Web Elements Jump start


I was very excited at the introduction of the web elements functionality shown at the User&#39;s conference. Now that I&#39;ve finally had a chance to load the functions into our repository and have the basic demos included in the web elements download working, I wanted to move on and modify one of our existing reports that take a beginning and ending date as search criteria. I quickly discovered, I don&#39;t quite understand the architecture of how this works. It&#39;s great I can add all these web controls to my report, but how do I connect a calendar control and the date selected to the selection criteria of the report? I&#39;m not sure I&#39;m following how this technology is plugged together. I tried publishing the additional sample reports to our repository but for some reason most fail with a message indicating the date could not be loaded from report. The hospital report is the only one that loads but also fails with: <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"><tbody><tr><td><span><h2><font size="1">Report Linking Error</font></h2></span></td><td align="right"><a href="javascript:window.history.back();"><font size="1">Back </font></a></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><font size="1"> </font></td></tr></tbody></table><table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3" width="100%" class="list"><tbody><tr><td class="list"><span><h3><font size="1">STR_ID:IDS_OPENDOC_REPORT_SOURCE_ERROR</font></h3><p><font size="1"><span>STR_ID:IDS_OPENDOC_REPORT_CANNOT_FIND_ERROR</span> </font></p></span><p><font size="1">I&#39;m not concerened with fixing the sample reports but rather I&#39;m trying to find the one knowledge nugget to get me started on connecting an input control to the selection criteria. Anyone have "simple samples" to look at.</font></p></td></tr></tbody></table>
