BPS_WB: How to use a Dropdown Box for several Parameter Groups?


I would like to create a dropdown box that would contain a list of several different Parameter Groups that the user could choose from and execute the associated Parameter Group.

From the description of the Help text it seems that the component called Selector Function (SEL_FUNCTION) could be use for this.

Can someone please describe how this type of dropdown box could be populated with several different Parameter Groups?

Here is the help text for the "Referencing Components" configuration option:

"All components are displayed here, in whose attributes references are

entered to this selector. The system determines the existing references

to the selector and adjusts the list automatically when changes are


This option is greyed out when I add it to my Web Interface.

    Hello Alan,

    first create a selector for the Function/Layout (sel_function). Call it "ParamSel1" for example and define area A and level L. Then create a function button and define area A, level L, package, and function in the properties. Finally, use the value help to define the parameter group for the button. "=ParamSel1" will be an option. Select it and you are done. If you go back to "ParamSel1" properties, you can see the correct reference to the function button (greyed out).

    • Hi Alan,

      you could probably build a generic drop down for executing any function. Put all functions on to a page as buttons and then hide them. Create you own UI for selecting functions and parameter groups and then use JavaScript to trigger the function event (bspSubmit(txtButtonName);).

      I was able to load about 100 K into a text element successfully. I have not tried more but you can always use several text elements if necessary.
