Suppose my QVW is available on Access Point. Now I want to give access to my Users to upload few values to a List Box. For example, there is a List Box called Country with values USA,INDIA,CHINA. Now one user wants to add few more values ex: JAPAN, AUSTRALIA to the Country List Box so that other users can Export the latest data. This task should be User oriented. User should upload the latest data to the QVW file without the help of Developer.
Is it by any chance possible from Access Point (IE Plugin/AJAX), without opening the QVW file in developer mode?
If not, are there any other methodologies without touching the original QVW file, like any Input Box usage, or use of Excel Data etc etc.
My requirement is pretty simpler though: My QVW has a single List box (nothing else) and data is coming from an Excel Sheet/single table. QVW is being triggered in QMC.
Suppose the User has no clue about the Excel Sheet and its location and he is really not bothered about it. He just wants to upload the latest values directly in front end of QVW from Access Point, without placing it in table/excel.
I suggest stepping back here and pondering the KISS [Keep It Simple ........] principle.
As Wikipedia says:
The KISS principle states that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complex; therefore simplicity should be a key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.
With EDX Task it is not so easy to show. If you will update the xls you can use a macro with server side export. You can find help to build a macro in the COM API Guide, in the sdk section. There is a example for nearly all qv-vbs commands. For the beginning you can build a document update task, witch runs every minute with a addload and if there is nothing new you can let it fail.
In fact, when I add a value of Country in the Input Box, its get added to the List Box. But when I add a new value to the input box afterwards, the previously entered value goes away, where I want that to stay too in the List Box (the values should keep on appending)!
