Let’s say there is a domain with elements RED, GREEN, BLUE.  Is there a way to create a dialog box that gives the user a choice (like a list box) RED, or GREEN, or BLUE. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is possible: what you want to do is add to the application XML a dialog element (usualy the dialogscreens are at the bottom of the XML). For example, you could add the following:


<dialog id=”viewdomain” label=”Color Domain”>

<table id=”viewdomain_table” label=”Colors” orderby=”changedate desc” relationship=”ALNDOMAIN_COLORS“>

<tablebody displayrowsperpage=”10″ filterable=”true” id=”viewdomain_tablebody”>

<tablecol dataattribute=”value” id=”viewdomain_tablebody_1″/>

<tablecol dataattribute=”description” id=”viewdomain_tablebody_2″/>




The bold relationship ALNDOMAIN_COLORS should be the relationship between your object and the alndomain with the correct where clause. (something like domainid = ‘yourDomain‘  and siteid=:siteid ).

What you then want to do is add a sigoption to the application with the same name as your dialog id (in my example viewdomain). Then in application designer select Action -> add/modify toolbar menu.

There you add a new row, with the following data:

Element type = OPTION

Key value = viewdomain

Postion = 999 (free to choose a number)

Subposition = 1 (also free to choose a number)

Then authorise the users to this new sigoption. You should now see a button in the toolbar, which opens the dialog, which shows your domain.

Check this link for a tutorial which is quite similar to your question http://www.xcentricway.ca/tutorial01.htm
