Web Clip with Parameters

I have a page that I would like to webclip. Problem is, the page contains parameters. For the classic example Lets say I have developed a page using php that will list employees belonging to a certain department. The web page would look something like this
I want to be able to defined this parameter using a drop down parameter list. Once I hit submit, I would see the web page with desired results. I've seen the demo where something similar to this is done, but in my case I want to see the whole page rendered. In the demo that I've seen you have to pick a certain region and somehow the web clipping tool traps the parameters. I've talked to support and we've tried passing parameters, but nothing seems to work. The support analyst basically told me that I would have to customize something that will allow me to load the page with the passed parameter. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm assuming the reason you're using Web Clipping is because you want your content rendered inside of a Portal page. As a much simpler alternative, if you are OK with having your content (page) accessed directly by the browser (outside of Portal), you can use the HTML Portlet (found within the Portlet Builders section of the Portlet Repository) to manually author an HTML snippet that has a has a drop-down like you mentioned and refreshes the page to the constructed URL of http://mycompany.com/list_emps.php?deptno=<whatever is selected>
Using Clipping, there are three issues that you want resolved here:
1) Full page Clipping - this is easily done just by clicking on the "Select" button instead of the "Section" button when you're on a page you wish to select
2) Clipping Parameters - In order to do what you asked, you will have to expose deptno as a Clipping parameter.
In order for that to happen, there has to be an existing page (call it page 1) that points to http://mycompany.com/list_emps.php?deptno=30 after a form submission (the 30 is entered as a form input).
As you enter the "Edit Defaults" (marked by the pencil icon) of the Web Clipping Portlet, and enter a starting URL to enter into the Web Clipping Studio, you will enter the URL for page 1 first and then use form submission to navigate (still within the Studio) to http://mycompany.com/list_emps.php?deptno=30.
Upon completion of the Web Clipping Studio (see issue 1 above), you'll return to the "Edit Defaults" where you'll see at the bottom of the page a table that allows you to expose Clipping Parameters - there you'll find deptno, and you can assign it to Param1 through Param5.
3) Create a Page Parameter that maps to this parameter (you can call it deptno as well) and wire it to the Param1 (or whatever Param you selected in the previous step). This allows for the Clipping Parameter to be passed from the page as a URL parameter.
Upon completion of 3, you can add another HTML Portlet on the page to change the current "Portal" URL based on the deptno value selected in a drop down.
I know it's a lot to read, but hope this helps,

  • Exporting to Microsoft Excel from a DataView Web Part consuming a Web Service with Parameters

    In Sharepoint Designer, I've developed a page displaying a DataView Web Part which consumes an XML Web Service with three parameters.  These parameters are passed in from a simple Form Web Part containing three input fields.  I am able to provide default values for the web service so the dataview is initially populated, and when I enter in new parameters, the web service goes back, grabs the requested data and displays in the dataview nice and slick.
    The problem I'm having is this: In Internet Explorer 7, when I right-click on the DataView Web Part and select Export to Microsoft Excel, Excel opens up, says "ExternalData_1: Getting Data..." and returns the data from the web service which applies to the default parameter values each and every time, regardless of whether I have changed the parameters on the web page, and contrary to what the DataView Web Part displays on the screen.
    Has anyone else run into this, and is there a solution to the problem?

  • How to restore deleted web clip with Time Machine

    I had a couple of nice web clips in my dashboard that I had to close to install new software. Now I want to restore them with time machine. How can I do that?

  • Is it possible to provide an BEx Web Query with parameters based on iView?

    Hi SAP Portal experts,
    My knowledge of SAP Portal is limited and I ran into the following problem:
    I have got about 60 BEx Web Queries which should be put into some sort of navigation. Furthermore I would like to intodruce one start page where the user can preselect common bex query variables (e.g. company code) by clicking on a map.
    My approach was to put all query links into a BEx Web Application Template. The template includes a JavaScript storing the userdefined values in a cookie. As soon as the user clicks on a link the cookie values are read from that cookie and a query parameter string is set up like "&BI_COMMAND_1-BI_COMMAND_TYPE=SET_VARIABLES_STATE&BI_COMMAND_1-VARIABLE_VALUES-VARIABLE_VALUE_1-VARIABLE_TYPE=VARIABLE_INPUT_STRING&BI_COMMAND_1-VARIABLE_VALUES-VARIABLE_VALUE_1-VARIABLE_TYPE-VARIABLE_INPUT_STRING=2100&BI_COMMAND_1-VARIABLE_VALUES-VARIABLE_VALUE_1-VARIABLE=0P_COCD" and concatenated with the URL for the BEx Query.
    My colleague wants me to put all this into SAP Portal and to create an iView for each BEx Query. How can I achieve that? I have already had a look at the iView property "parameters passed on to BEx Web Application". If I put my parameter string there, it works fine. However, I would like to replace VARIABLE_INPUT_STRING=2100 and VARIABLE=0P_COCD with the values selected by the user by clicking on the map. So how can I set up a parameter or variable in one iView and read it in another iView with a BEx Web Query???
    Thank you very much in advance

    I have thought about this. There are some problems here....
    I cannot use the same proxy to invoke the java callout and then based on the code or handler disable it, since
    1) i would have no way to enable back the proxy again.
    2) Also there is some amount of message loss.
    So i will have to use another proxy to do the same, but in this case
    1) what would be the trigger to this proxy?
    2) And how often do i invoke the java callout to see if the URI is up or not? (wouldnt that affect the performance?)
    I am just wondering why did they give an offline URI option in the business service and no similar option in the proxy service, Any Idea?

  • Start GP Process from VC using Web Service with parameters

    II´m trying to instantiate a GP process from a Vc iView using a Web Service; I always used Instantiation via URL but using this method I don´t have any "return" data from GP saying "Ok - The process started succesfully".
    The questions are:
    1) Is possible to start a GP process via Web Services through a VC Flash iview? If so, is posible to send input parameters to the process via the web service?
    2) Does the web service returns any message with the status of the process? ( something like: "the process started succesfully")
    Best regards,

    1) Is possible to start a GP process via Web Services through a VC Flash iview? If so, is posible to send input parameters to the process via the web service?
    A: Yes. You can send input parameters to the service through WS.
    2) Does the web service returns any message with the status of the process? ( something like: "the process started succesfully")
    A: Yes. The return message can be added to the WS. It depends on how do designed the WS.

  • How to call web service with parameters?

    I'm testing a distributed architecture where parameters are queried from an ODBC database, and a web service called with resulting parameters as input, returning a computed result to the integrated Crystal report. I'm unable to successfully associate the database fields with the web service parameters - the web service is always called with empty parameters. When I call the web service manually from CR by entering parameters, it works as expected. I'm using a sub-report with fields linked to the main report.
    Has anyone done something like this / know how to correctly link database fields with web service parameters?
    Help much appreciated,

    An update - I solved this problem as follows:
    In CR Design view, right-click on sub-report object, select 'Change Subreport Links'. In the links dialog, transfer database fields into 'Field(s) to link to' list. Select a field in 'Field(s) to link to' and in 'Subreport parameter field to use' below, map the field to the appropriate web service parameter field in the dropdown.

    Try changing the <xsd:element name="ProcessTransactionRequest"> element name to: <xsd:element name="ProcessTransaction"> and update the reference to it in the <wsdl:message name="ProcessTransactionRequest"> message.
    In order to use wrapper style, your WSDL needs to have the following characteristics:
    1) The operation's input and output messages (if present) each contain a single part
    2) The input message part refers to a global element declaration whose localname is equal to the operation name
    3) The output message refers to a global element declaration
    4) The elements referred to by the input and output message parts (henceforth referred to as wrapper elements) are both complex types defined using the xsd:sequence compositor
    5 The wrapper elements only contain child elements, they must not contain other structures such as wildcards...

  • Consume SAP Web service with parameters in Forms using JS

    Hi All
    I am trying to execute a call to a webservice using javascript from my adobe form .
    I can get this working by creating a DataConnection and mapping input fields on the form to the Request structure (XFA method) .
    But when I use JS, i cannot get it working while using paramters.
    Here is my sample code.
    var cUrl = http://XXXXXXX:XXXX.........;
    var service = SOAP.connect(cUrl);

    var result = service.ZppTestGetBatchNumbers(inputVal);
    txtResult.rawValue = result;
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Instead of using parameters, I am now using hidden text fields on the foem which I have bound to the web service call.
    This is a work around that is working fine for me..

    In order to prevent some urls and internal websites from being cached use url bypassing. This way these urls will not be cached and the users can directly use them without being asked to log in.
    To enable transparent error handling and dynamic authentication bypass, and to configure static bypass lists, use the bypass global configuration command. To disable the bypass feature, use the no form of the command.

    Is there some example where these terms are seen.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Ana,
    a window inbound plug can have parameters.
    These parameters are automatically fished out of the URL by the framework.
    So your inbound plug handler method has easy access to the parameters.
    http://<host>:port/sap/bc/webdynpro/sap/<your application>?param1=xyz&param2=abc
    The application is configured to call an inbound interface(window) and plug.
    The plug can be declared with parameters.
    Double click on window inbound plug and add your parameters.
    The parameters are made available by framework if present in Launch URL.
    You can also call an application that has parameters  directly entered on the parameters tab.
    ie Parameters can be part of the application launch.

  • Web service operation ... with parameters {} cannot be found

    Hi All,
    I am accessing a web service of a web site using ColdFusion.Each time I am calling the web service I am getting the message "Web service operation ... with parameters {} cannot be found".The wsdl file showing the parameter as complex type .So I have passed value to the particular method using structure and xml type each time I gets that error message.I can not post here the wsdl for security reason.
    When I am calling this Web service from .net it is working without any problem. .NET directly creating the objects of the parameter which the method is needed from the wsdl but I don't know whether it is possible in ColdFusion or not.Also I don't know whether the web service in .net or in other language.
    Please suggest something.

    Thanks for your response.
    Yes, I have passed all the arguments but it seems the web application is coded in .net and by googling I came to know that if the .net receives a complex type of object then it creates problem when we pass argument from coldfusion.(means type mismatch)
    If you know about it please suggest .

  • How to create web services with complex objects as parameters

    Not sure if this is the right place, but...
    I'm using Netbeans 5.5 and trying to learn web services.
    Creating a simple web service with simple parameters like strings and integers is nice and easy. I'm now trying to take the next step, and create a web service with a more complex schema as a parameter.
    I've tried two approaches, and hit dead ends on both:
    (1) Define my complex schema as an xsd file, and then create a WSDL file. Creating the schema and saving it in my EFB project works fine; when I try to create a new WSDL file, the IDE gives me a button to import external schemas - which is where the problem is: the Browse simply won't find my newly created schema file.
    (2) Define a Java class (in this case, it's a fairly simple example containing a single ArrayList), and then use the IDE to generate a web service from Java. The IDE does this fine, but I now have no idea how to consume or test the web service - I don't know where to look for the WSDL that has presumably been generated, and I'm also a bit iffy over what answers to give the WSDL creator about port names etc.
    Ideally, I'd prefer to get approach 1 to work - can someone point me in the direction of a sensible tutorial for these things?
    (Happy to carry on using Netbeans 5.5 or to revert to Sun Studio Enterprise, which I was playing with before.)
    All help appreciated, Thanks

  • Browser preferences - web clip incompatible with pop-ups?

    I'm a newbie to iOS & Safari and I've haven't been able to work out the following:
    I use a web-browser client app for work.
    Since it is an app (with its own built-in navigation), I'd like to clear up space on my screen and use Safari in Full-Screen Mode.
    I've therefore created what I believe is called a "Web Clip" (to add an icon with a direct link to the apps' login screen on my desktop/start screen).
    When I double-click on this link, no Safari toolbar shows up (address box, navigation buttons, page tabs, etc.) so the interface is neat and has the feel of a standalone app.
    However, a couple of functions stop working in this mode (they work fine in the "standard mode"):
    I don't receive pop-ups (I'm able to launch reports against the server, which in turn is supposed to send back a PDF-file which should open in a new window or tab).
    I can't use a click-on email-link to create a message (it's a simple mailto:x link).
    I've searched all the configuration options I could think of but nothing solves this.
    Can it be done?
    If not, is there any way to "reduce" the space occupied by Safari's toolbar?

    I'm sorry Jim but I just wouldn't know where to start.
    This is not a developer question, I'm just trying to configure the iPad appropriately.
    Do you know if there is any configuration option on the iPad Air that "enables pop-ups" in Safari "full-screen mode"??
