Help with enabledBindingId not functioning

I'm having trouble with this attached form.

The "Applies to all devices" is supposed to disable the "Devices this filter applies to" when enabled. I had this working by adding the properties of the listbox:

enabledBindingId="filterAllDevices" enabledBindingNegate="true"

This worked fine. However, as I built the form further, I needed to have the checkbox and listbox visibility bound to another control, so I added to both controls:

visibleBindingValue="edit,add" enabledBindingId="editMode"

This broke the enabled binding for the "devices this filter applies to" listbox. The visibility binding works fine for both. The enabled binding works when the visible binding is removed, and immediately stops working when I add it back in.

Re: Help with enabledBindingId not functioning

Combining visible and enabled bindings is probably something best avoided (there are definitely limitations). You may be able to use the dynamicReload flag with a common method call such that whenever a button or menu item is changed the method is called with the new values - that would enable you to set flags as necessary (use hidden checkboxes for instance to control behavior). Without seeing a complete ConfigUI (preferably a short example of what you're trying to do) it's hard to know for sure.

Re: Help with enabledBindingId not functioning

If there's a way to programmatically control the hidden property, that would probably solve my issue. Is there an example of this you can point me to?

Re: Help with enabledBindingId not functioning

Yes
Set the hiddenid to a check box
Then in program set that checkbox to true/false

I have in one of my plugins >>10 of this to switch certain fields visible / hidden.

then you need to have a central method that is called by the buttons the users click
That method then will set visible on/off for all

Re: Help with enabledBindingId not functioning

here the hidden indicators in eg devcie.xml
Code: Select all
<Field id="ExpertsAndPlots"        type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="ExpertsAndLines"        type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="selectLinesOK"          type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="DefineLinesANotSelect"  type="checkbox" defaultValue="true"  hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="DefineLinesASelected"   type="checkbox" defaultValue="true"  hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="DefineLinesBNotSelect"  type="checkbox" defaultValue="true"  hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="DefineLinesBSelected"   type="checkbox" defaultValue="true"  hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="showFunc"               type="checkbox" defaultValue="true"  hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="fontsGNUONOFF"          type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="fontsMATONOFF"          type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="TimeseriesAndPlots"     type="checkbox" defaultValue="true"  hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="showBins"               type="checkbox" defaultValue="true"  hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="showBinsS"              type="checkbox" defaultValue="true"  hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="showXscale"             type="checkbox" defaultValue="true"  hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="showY2scale"            type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="showRGBBackground"      type="checkbox" defaultValue="true"  hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="showRGBText"            type="checkbox" defaultValue="true"  hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="polarLineText"          type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="polarPlotText"          type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="amPm"                   type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="leftRight"              type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="showExtraText"          type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="showNotScatter"         type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="showNotScatterS"        type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="showNotScatterC"        type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="showSmooth"             type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>
<Field id="showLineShift"          type="checkbox" defaultValue="false" hidden="yes"> </Field>


used like this in eg devcie.xml:
Code: Select all
<Field enabledBindingId="selectLinesOK" visibleBindingId="showLineShift" visibleBindingValue="true" id="lineShift" type="menu" defaultValue='0' tooltip="1 would show yesterdays data today,   365 would show last years data today">....



then set like this:
Code: Select all
