setAddUnknownValues

public void setAddUnknownValues(java.lang.Boolean addUnknownValues)
If this item's value is set (via SelectItem.setValue or similar) to a value which is not present in the com.smartgwt.client.types.ValueMap, should the value be rejected.

If set to false the setValue() call will have no effect if the value is not a valid option.

If set to true the item's value will be update to the new value, and the value will be added to the set of options displayed in the pick-list until the next call to SelectItem.setValueMap or SelectItem.setValue.

Exception: If the value is set to null but there is no null entry in the valueMap for this item, setting addUnknownValues to true will not cause a null option to show up at the top of the select item pickList. Whether an empty option is shown in the pickList is governed by allowEmptyValue instead.

Note that this property has no effect if the selectItem has a specified optionDataSource. If SelectItem.setValue is called on a databound SelectItem and the new value does not match any loaded options, the value will be accepted, but not added to the options displayed in the pickList. Also note that if a displayField exists, a fetch will be performed in an attempt to retrieve a valid display value, as described under fetchMissingValues. If specified the loadingDisplayValue will be displayed while the fetch is in progress, and then the real value (mapped to a display field value if a matching record was found) will be displayed when the fetch completes.

Note : This is an advanced setting

Parameters:
addUnknownValues - Default value is true

setAutoFetchData

public void setAutoFetchData(java.lang.Boolean autoFetchData)
If this select item retrieves its options from a dataSource, should options be fetched from the server when the item is first drawn, or should this fetch be delayed until the user opens the pickList.

The default is true in order to allow the user to select a value via keyboard input while keyboard focus is on the SelectItem but the pickList has not actually been shown.

Note : This is an advanced setting

Parameters:
autoFetchData - Default value is true

getAutoFetchData

public java.lang.Boolean getAutoFetchData()

setDefaultToFirstOption

public void setDefaultToFirstOption(java.lang.Boolean defaultToFirstOption)
Select the first option as the default value for this SelectItem.

If options are derived from a dataSource, the first value returned by the server will be used, otherwise the first value in the valueMap. Note that setting this property to true will trigger a fetch at soon as the form is created, because the form will try to establish a default value at that time.

If enabled, this setting overrides defaultValue and SelectItem.defaultDynamicValue.

Parameters:
defaultToFirstOption - Default value is false

getDefaultToFirstOption

public java.lang.Boolean getDefaultToFirstOption()
Select the first option as the default value for this SelectItem.

If options are derived from a dataSource, the first value returned by the server will be used, otherwise the first value in the valueMap. Note that setting this property to true will trigger a fetch at soon as the form is created, because the form will try to establish a default value at that time.

If enabled, this setting overrides defaultValue and SelectItem.defaultDynamicValue.

Returns:
Boolean

setDefaultValue

public void setDefaultValue(java.lang.Boolean defaultValue)
Static default value for this SelectItem. To default to the first option use defaultToFirstOption instead.

Overrides:
setDefaultValue in class FormItem
Parameters:
defaultValue - Default value is null

getDefaultValue

public java.lang.Boolean getDefaultValue()
Static default value for this SelectItem. To default to the first option use defaultToFirstOption instead.

Returns:
Boolean

setDisplayField

public void setDisplayField(java.lang.String displayField)
Specifies an alternative field from which display values should be retrieved for this item.

The display field can be either another field value in the same record or a field that must be retrieved from a related optionDataSource.

If this item is not databound (optionDataSource is unset), or bound to the same dataSource as the form as a whole, this item will call form.getValue() the form named after is implemented by picking up the value of the specified field from the Form's values object.

Otherwise this item will attempt to map its underlying value to a display value by retrieving a record from the optionDataSource where the valueField matches this item's value, and displaying the displayField value from that record. Note that if optionDataSource is set and this value is not set, FormItem.getDisplayFieldName will return the dataSource title field by default.

This essentially enables the specified optionDataSource to be used as a server based valueMap.

Specified by:
setDisplayField in interface PickList
Overrides:
setDisplayField in class FormItem
Parameters:
displayField - Default value is null
See Also:
FormItem.invalidateDisplayValueCache(), List - Related Records Example

This essentially enables the specified optionDataSource to be used as a server based valueMap.

Specified by:
getDisplayField in interface PickList
Overrides:
getDisplayField in class FormItem
Returns:
Returns the displayField for this item. This will typically be specified explicitly via the displayField attribute. However, if that property is unset, and the valueField for this item is hidden in the optionDataSource, this method will return the title field for the optionDataSource.

setMultiple

public void setMultiple(java.lang.Boolean multiple)
If true, multiple values may be selected.

The SelectItem will either render as a drop-down allowing multiple selections, or a multi-row list of options similar to a small headerless ListGrid, based on the MultipleAppearance setting.

The logical value of the formItem, as retrieved by getValue() and set via setValue(), is an Array of Strings reflecting the selected values.

When this value is true, we disable doubleClick events by default, instead issuing two single clicks by forcibly setting noDoubleClicks: true. If you need to work with doubleClick events, you can disable this default behavior by explicitly setting formItem.pickListProperties.noDoubleClicks: false.

Note: multiple:true SelectItems with multipleAppearance:"grid" do not currently support optionDataSource binding. You can get around this by calling DataSource.fetchData directly and calling dsResponse.data.getValueMap() to obtain a valueMap.

Parameters:
multiple - Default value is false

public void defaultDynamicValue()
Expression evaluated to determine the defaultValue when no value is provided for this item. To default to the first option use defaultToFirstOption instead.


getDisplayFieldName

public java.lang.String getDisplayFieldName()
Returns the displayField for this item. This will typically be specified explicitly via the displayField attribute. However, if that property is unset, and the valueField for this item is hidden in the optionDataSource, this method will return the title field for the optionDataSource.

Specified by:
getDisplayFieldName in interface PickList
Overrides:
getDisplayFieldName in class FormItem
Returns:
display field name, or null if there is no separate display field to use.

getSelectedRecords

public ListGridRecord[] getSelectedRecords()

showPicker

public void showPicker()
Method to show a picker for this item. By default this method is called if the user clicks on a pickerIcon. May also be called programmatically.

Default implementation lazily creates and shows the Picker Autochild. May be overridden to implement some custom picker for this item.

Overrides:
showPicker in class FormItem

setDefaultProperties

public static void setDefaultProperties(SelectItem selectItemProperties)
Class level method to set the default properties of this class. If set, then all existing and subsequently created instances of this class will automatically have default properties corresponding to the properties of the class instance passed to this function. This is a powerful feature that eliminates the need for users to create a separate hierarchy of subclasses that only alter the default properties of this class. Can also be used for skinning / styling purposes.

Note: This method is intended for setting default attributes only and will affect all instances of the underlying class (including those automatically generated in JavaScript). This method should not be used to apply standard EventHandlers or override methods for a class - use a custom subclass instead. Calling this method after instances have been created can result in undefined behavior, since it bypasses any setters and a class instance may have already examined a particular property and not be expecting any changes through this route.

Parameters:
selectItemProperties - properties that should be used as new defaults when instances of this class are created

getPickListFilterCriteria

protected Criteria getPickListFilterCriteria()
Returns a set of filter criteria to be applied to the data displayed in the pickList when it is shown.
If this is a databound item, the criteria will be passed as criteria to DataSource.fetchData(). Otherwise an equivalent client-side filter will be performed on the data returned by PickList.getClientPickListData().
By default returns PickList.pickListCriteria if specified, otherwise an empty set of criteria so all records will be displayed. Note : this is an override point - if overridden this method will be called by the live form item during filtering. However it is recommended that developers use setPickListFilterCriteriaFunction(FormItemCriteriaFunction) to build custom criteria instead of overriding this method directly. This ensures that the custom filter criteria generating code will be called even if the form item was automatically generated based on a template passed to ListGridField.setEditorType(com.smartgwt.client.widgets.form.fields.FormItem).

Returns:
criteria to be used for databound or local filtering

setPickListHeight

Parameters:
showAllOptions - showAllOptions Default value is null

getShowAllOptions

public java.lang.Boolean getShowAllOptions()
If true, even non-matching options will be shown, with configurable separatorRows in between. Not valid for optionDataSource.

Specified by:

setPickListCriteria

public void setPickListCriteria(DSRequest optionFilterContext)
If this item has a specified optionDataSource, and this property is not null, this will be passed to the datasource as RPCRequest properties when performing the filter operation on the dataSource to obtain the set of options for the list.

Note : This is an advanced setting

Parameters:
optionFilterContext - optionFilterContext Default value is null

setOptionDataSource

public void setOptionDataSource(DataSource dataSource)
If set, this FormItem will derive data to show in the PickList by fetching records from the specified optionDataSource. The fetched data will be used as a valueMap by extracting the valueField and displayField in the loaded records, to derive one valueMap entry per record loaded from the optionDataSource. Multiple fields from the fetched data may be shown in the pickList by setting pickListFields.

The data will be retrieved via a "fetch" operation on the DataSource, passing the pickListCriteria (if set) as criteria, and passing optionFilterContext (if set) as DSRequest properties.

The fetch will be triggered when the pickList is first shown, or, you can set autoFetchData to fetch when the FormItem is first drawn. You can also call com.smartgwt.client.widgets.form.fields.PickList#fetchData at any time to manually trigger a fetch.

Data paging is automatically enabled if the optionDataSource supports it. As the pickList is scrolled by the user, requests for additional data will be automatically issued.

For a pickList attached to a ComboBoxItem, new fetches are issued as the user types, with criteria set as described under ComboBoxItem.getPickListFilterCriteria(). If your dataSource is not capable of filtering results by search criteria (eg the dataSource is backed by an XML flat file), you can set filterLocally to have the entire dataset loaded up front and filtering performed in the browser. This disables data paging.

Setting optionDataSource also enables the basic optionDataSource behaviors, eg, fetching individual display values before the pickList is shown.

Note that if a normal, static valueMap is also specified for the field (either directly in the form item or as part of the field definition in the dataSource), it will be preferred to the data derived from the optionDataSource for whatever mappings are present.

Note : This is an advanced setting

Specified by:
setOptionDataSource in interface PickList
Overrides:
setOptionDataSource in class FormItem
Parameters:
optionDataSource - optionDataSource Default value is null

Specified by:
setSeparatorRows in interface PickList
Parameters:
separatorRows - separator rows

setDefaultValues

public void setDefaultValues(java.lang.String... defaultValues)

Parameters:
defaultValues - the defaultValues. Default value is null

setDefaultValues

public void setDefaultValues(java.lang.Integer... defaultValues)
Default values used when no value is provided for this item. Note that whenever this item's value is cleared by the user or set to null programmatically, it will be reverted to the defaultValues.

Parameters:
defaultValues - the defaultValues. Default value is null

setFetchDelay

public void setFetchDelay(java.lang.Integer fetchDelay)
Description copied from interface: PickList
For a ComboBox or other pickList that accepts user-entered criteria, how many millseconds to wait after the last user keystroke before fetching data from the server. The default setting will initiate a fetch if the stops typing or pauses briefly.

Specified by:
setFetchDelay in interface PickList
Parameters:
fetchDelay - the fetch delay. defaults to 200ms

getFetchDelay

public java.lang.Integer getFetchDelay()
Description copied from interface: PickList
For a ComboBox or other pickList that accepts user-entered criteria, how many millseconds to wait after the last user keystroke before fetching data from the server. The default setting will initiate a fetch if the stops typing or pauses briefly.

Specified by:
getFetchDelay in interface PickList
Returns:

getValues

public java.lang.String[] getValues()
Returns the values of a SelectItem with multiple=true as an array of Strings.

Returns:
value of selection. If no values are selected, and empty array is returned

setValues

public void setValues(java.lang.String... values)
Set the values of a SelectItem with multiple=true.

Parameters:
values - the SelectItem values

isMultiple

public java.lang.Boolean isMultiple()
If true, multiple values may be selected.

The SelectItem will either render as a drop-down allowing multiple selections, or a multi-row list of options similar to a small headerless ListGrid, based on the MultipleAppearance setting.

The logical value of the formItem, as retrieved by getValue() and set via setValue(), is an Array of Strings reflecting the selected values.

When this value is true, we disable doubleClick events by default, instead issuing two single clicks by forcibly setting noDoubleClicks: true. If you need to work with doubleClick events, you can disable this default behavior by explicitly setting formItem.pickListProperties.noDoubleClicks: false.

Note: multiple:true SelectItems do not currently support optionDataSource binding. You can get around this by calling DataSource.fetchData directly and calling dsResponse.data.getValueMap() to obtain a valueMap.

Returns:
Boolean

Appearance overview and related methods

filterClientPickListData

public ListGridRecord[] filterClientPickListData()
Description copied from interface: PickList
Returns the data to display in the pick list.

The default implementation applies the criteria returned by #getPickListFilterCriteria to the data returned by PickList.getClientPickListData(). A record passes the filter if it has a matching value for all fields in the criteria object. Matching is performed according to textMatchStyle.

If showAllOptions is set, all values are shown, with matching values shown below a separator.

Specified by:
filterClientPickListData in interface PickList
Returns:
array of record objects to display in the pickList

getClientPickListData

public ListGridRecord[] getClientPickListData()
Description copied from interface: PickList

This method will be called for non-databound form items implementing the PickList interface. The default implementation will derive data from the item's valueMap - can be overridden to allow a custom set of options to be displayed.

Note that for PickLists that filter data based on user input 'ComboBox'), this method should return the data before filtering.

Specified by:
getClientPickListData in interface PickList
Returns:
Array of record objects to be displayed in the pickList. Note that when a user picks a record from the list, the value of the field matching item.valueField will be picked. Also note that the fields to be displayed can be customized via item.pickListFields

getSelectedRecord

public ListGridRecord getSelectedRecord()
Returns the entire record object associated with the current value for this item (or null if no matching record exists in the PickList data). Most commonly used for databound pickListItems to retrieve the values of other fields in the record.
