I'm having a bit of a problem at the moment in relation to checkboxes
I have an application(web based) which administers user rights to specific areas.
the problem is that I want to select specific users. this is done via a check box at the moment but the users change depending on which database the app is interacting with.
Is there any way to get WR to recognise a checkbox with out it having to be given a specific part_value. I can not use location either as their is a dynamic hide show on a table above the list and therefore causes the locations to change. I tried it this way and it kept telling me that the element did not exist in the GUI map. [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
any help would be appreciated.
Need more info let me know and I'll see what I can do.
I am making the following assumptions from what you have said above
1) you know what users will be displayed for each application
2) you know what application you are selecting.
My solution would be
1) Have a table in access that stores the application name with the users that will appear
for that application
2) When the application starts have a function that
- checks which application is being run
- then using that info doing a select on the
table to get the user names
3) Using the number of records passed back in 2) loop through each each user name selecting on or off depending on which you want (Another column in the access database could store if the tick box needs to be on or off)
A work around I admit and I have no doubt I will be embarrassed by somebody else one line answer to this
Have you explored all the attributes in case you can GUI-re-configure check boxes (and/or use a physical description constructed dynamically at run time)? It's hard to comment specifically without seeing the attributes of them.
