Calender in Java Viewer in Infoview

Hi

We have many reports which take date as parameter. These reports are published using Infoview.

When the default viewer is set as DHTML , the reports are asking for this parameter with a calender option.

but when we change the viewer to Java, the reports are asking for this parameter to be enteted manually with day , month and Year as different text boxes.

Does anyone know how to attach calander in Java Viewer ?

    Thanks Soni

    Can we change the order in which Day,month and year is asked.

    to be very specific , currently the viewer is asking date to be entered in yyyy, mm and dd format (in seperate text boxes)

    we need it to be mm , dd and yyyy boxes

      Kamal,

      As Soni pointed out, there is really no way to modify the code behind the Java panel since it is a pre-built Java applet that is downloaded and run within InfoView.

      There are a few settings that you can change within the applet, but most of them are only cosmetic changes, nothing functionality-wise. You can take a look at the config file for the applet located at "D:\BusinessObjects\Tomcat\webapps\businessobjects\enterprise115\desktoplaunch\webiApplet\AppletConfig\defaultConfig.xml", but again, it would not really let you modify the date format that you are looking for.

      I wonder why you are looking to do that - what is the date format in your database? Does it match with the one you intend to use?

      Cheers,

      Sarang

    Hi Kamal

    - This is the inbuilt functionality in Infoview.

    - When the default viewer is set as DHTML , the reports asks for the parameter with a calender option.

    - Unfortunately ,this is not possible when you select the Java viewer.

    - When you change the viewer to Java, the reports would ask you for the parameter to be entered manually with day , month and Year as different text boxes.

    - Infoview is made up of jsp pages(API's) which are not public.

    - So ,we cannot make any changes in the settings i.e default behaviour while using Java viewer in Infoview(cannot attach calendar).

    Hope this answers your question.

    Thanks

    Soni
