QS Mashup is clearing all selections when I change Tabs

Dear QS Experts,

I am working on a set of Mashups built upon QS Apps residing in QS Enterprise server version 11.11.2 June 2017 Patch 2.

I have an inconsistent behaviour in my Mashups. Whenever I am selecting and moving between my tabs inside my Mashups the selections get cleared, and sometimes my fields stay selected.

I have allocated the clearAll() function in two places:

1) .js

switch ( $element.data( 'qcmd' ) ) {
//app level commands
case 'clearAll':
app.clearAll();
break;

2) .html

<a class="qcmd1 col-sm-12" data-qcmd="clearAll">CLEAR ALL</a>

I am also attaching the function that deals with the selections in my Mashup:

function applySelections()

    {

        var sPageURL = window.location.search.substring(1);

        var sURLVariables = sPageURL.split('?');

        for (var i = 0; i < sURLVariables.length; i++)

        {

            var sParameterName = sURLVariables.split('=');

            var FieldName = decodeURI(sParameterName[0]);

            var FieldValues = decodeURI(sParameterName[1]).split(',');

            for(var j = 0; j < FieldValues.length; j++)

            {

                if (FieldValues.match(/^[0-9]+$/) != null) {

                    FieldValues = parseInt(FieldValues, 10);

                }

            }

            app.field(FieldName).selectValues(FieldValues, true, true);

        }

    }

Re: QS Mashup is clearing all selections when I change Tabs

Dear Daniel,

How have you implemented the tabs?  Are the tabs on the same html page or on a different page?

Re: QS Mashup is clearing all selections when I change Tabs

Please post your HTML page(s) containing the tabs.

HI Richard,

All the pages have different tabs using seperate .html files:

Re: QS Mashup is clearing all selections when I change Tabs

Hi Daniel,

Do all of your html files call qlik.openApp()?  If so, then the selections will not be kept as you navigate between the different HTML pages.  I was advised that it is better to have the tabs within the same html page and to hide/show the divs containing the tab code.

Re: QS Mashup is clearing all selections when I change Tabs

Hi Richard,

None of the HTML files call the qlik.openApp function.

Moving all tabs to 1 html is not an option, as we are using a bootstrap etc...

I find the mashup technology a bit to buggy, should have been more stable at this point.

No other options?

Re: QS Mashup is clearing all selections when I change Tabs

Hi Daniel,

You must be opening the app in one of the script files referenced in one of your html files otherwise how can you access your visualizations?  I am using bootstrap too and have combined the tabs into one html file.  Here's a link to a page that might help you out:

https://www.w3schools.com/bootstrap/bootstrap_tabs_pills.asp

Here's a snippet:

<ul class="nav nav-tabs">

  <li class="active"><a data-toggle="tab" href="#home">Home</a></li>

  <li><a data-toggle="tab" href="#menu1">Menu 1</a></li>

  <li><a data-toggle="tab" href="#menu2">Menu 2</a></li>

</ul>

<div class="tab-content">

  <div id="home" class="tab-pane fade in active">

    <h3>HOME</h3>

    <p>Some content.</p>

  </div>

  <div id="menu1" class="tab-pane fade">

    <h3>Menu 1</h3>

    <p>Some content in menu 1.</p>

  </div>

  <div id="menu2" class="tab-pane fade">

    <h3>Menu 2</h3>

    <p>Some content in menu 2.</p>

  </div>

</div>

You can maintaining selections in this way and I have not found this approach to be buggy at all.  It's just a question of understanding how mashups work - create session, open app, reference objects, apply and change selections etc.

I hope this helps
