    Set current selections by date

    André Sousa Silva

      Hi guys,


      I am not able to filter in my mashup by date through javascript. I've tried several solutions


      app.field ("YYYYMM"). selectValues (["2011-01"], true, true);

      app.field("YYYYMM").selectValues(["40544"],true, true);

      app.field("YYYYMM").selectValues(["2012-May"],true, true);


      app.field("YYYYMM.autoCalendar.YearMonth").selectValues(["2012-May"], true, true); 

      app.field("YYYYMM.autoCalendar.YearMonth").selectValues(["40544"],true, true);

      app.field("YYYYMM.autoCalendar.YearMonth").selectValues(["2011-01"],true, true);

      app.field("=Dual(Year([YYYYMM])&'-'&Month([YYYYMM]),MonthStart([YYYYMM]))").selectValues(["2012-May"], true, true);

      app.field("=Dual(Year([YYYYMM])&'-'&Month([YYYYMM]),MonthStart([YYYYMM]))").selectValues(["40544"], true, true);

      app.field("=Dual(Year([YYYYMM])&'-'&Month([YYYYMM]),MonthStart([YYYYMM]))").selectValues(["2011-01"], true, true);



      Manually in chart working very well:

          Working with this myself and I found selecting date as a number seems to work. (remove the quotes):

                app.field("YYYYMM.autoCalendar.YearMonth").selectValues([40544],true, true);

            According to the help site: "Dual() combines a number and a string into a single record, such that the number representation of the record can be used for sorting and calculation purposes, while the string value can be used for display purposes." Therefore it is limited on selecting the text representation of the DUAL field.

            Instead of using selectValues() and selecting on the numeric values of the field like David said, you could use selectMatch() method, and provide the text values you want to selected in a seach syntaxt.

            e.g. app.field('DayOfWeek').selectMatch('(Monday|Tuesday|Wednesday)', true);

            You can also use toggleSelect() method for toggling your selection.
