I have customized a script that browse tables into a Fm file and prompt the user if he wants the current active table to be reformated or not
I haven't find a clean way to have the table that is currently selected in the variable "tbl" to be visible on the screen when the scripts sends a dialog.
The workaround that I have found consists in starting some formating on the table before sending the prompt, in that case the currently processed table is visible when the prompt arises.
But I would like to have the table visible and avoid doing any processing on the table before the user has had a chance to answer the prompt.
I assume there must be a method to bring the focus of the active window on an element that is selected in a variable?
var tbl = doc.SelectedTbl
tbltitle = "";
tblTextItem = tbl.FirstPgf.GetText(Constants.FTI_String);
for (var i = 0 ; i < tblTextItem.length; i++)
tbltitle += tblTextItem[i].sdata ;
/* How to make my "tbl" visible in the active doc window ? */
if(Alert("Formating: " + tbl.FirstPgf.PgfNumber + tbltitle +" ?\nClick cancel to abort.",Constants.FF_ALERT_CANCEL_DEFAULT))
/* insert table formating code here */
tbl = tbl.NextTblInDoc;
Alert ("No active doc" ,Constants.FF_ALERT_CONTINUE_WARN)
Thank you Rick!
