Create More Buttons

In the example, we add some more buttons to show some automation code.

 

<!-- add some buttons associated with above editor.               -->
<!-- generation of code is now implemented using the MapForce automation  -->
<!-- interface to select a target folder without prompting the user.      -->
<p>
  <input type="button" value="New File" onclick="BtnNewFile(objDoc1)">
  <input type="button" value="Save File" onclick="BtnSaveFile(objDoc1)">
  <input type="text" title="Path" id="strPath" width="150">
  <input type="button" value="Open MarketingExpenses" onclick="BtnOpenMEFile(objDoc1)">
  <input type="button" value="Open MapForce Sample Project" onclick="BtnOpenProjectFile(objDoc1)">
</p>

 

The corresponding JavaScript looks like this:

 

// -------------------------------------------------------------------
// open a new empty document in the specified document control window.
function BtnNewFile(objDocCtrl)
{
  objDocCtrl.OpenDocument("");
  objDocCtrl.setActive();
}
 
// -------------------------------------------------------------------
// Saves the current file in the specified document control window.
function BtnSaveFile(objDocCtrl)
{
  if(objDocCtrl.Path.length > 0)
objDocCtrl.SaveDocument();
  else
  {
if(strPath.value.length > 0)
{
  objDocCtrl.Path = strPath.value;
  objDocCtrl.SaveDocument();
}
else
{
  alert("Please set path for the document first!");
  strPath.focus();
}
  }
 
  objDocCtrl.setActive();
}
 
// ---------------------------------------------------------
// open a document in the specified document control window.
function BtnOpenMEFile(objDocCtrl)
{
  // do not use MapForceX.Application.OpenDocument(...) to open a document,
  // since then MapForceControl wouldn't know a control window to show
  // the document in. Instead:
 
  var strPath = MakeAbsolutePath("MarketingExpenses.mfd");
  var objDoc = objDocCtrl.OpenDocument(strPath);
 
  if (objDoc != null)
  {
objDocCtrl.setActive();
msgtext.innerText = "Opened mapping: " + strPath;
  }
  else
alert("Unable to open " + strPath);
}
