4 Using BrowsER

This chapter contains the following topics:

4.1 Understanding BrowsER

You can use JD Edwards EnterpriseOne BrowsER to view event rules (ER) for interactive and batch applications.

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne BrowsER displays the structure of forms within an interactive application, or sections within a batch application. The forms or sections appear in a hierarchical structure, with events and ER for each event. You can use JD Edwards EnterpriseOne BrowsER to search and filter ER, and disable or enable ER.

You can select one of these JD Edwards EnterpriseOne BrowsER options to easily view or search for ER code:

  • Expand Tree

  • Expand Node

  • Show Object IDs

  • Hide Objects with no ER

  • Filter ER Records

    Filter ER Records enables you to show or hide specific ER statements, including:

    • Assignments

    • Business functions

    • Criterion

    • Comments

    • Form interconnections

    • Options

    • System functions

  • Search ER Records enables you to search for specific ER statements or text within those statements.

4.2 Working with BrowsER

To work with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne BrowsER:

  1. On Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Object Management Workbench (OMW), select an object with ER and then click the Design button.

  2. On Interactive Design, click the Design Tools tab, and then click the Browse Event Rules button.

    Alternatively, you can access JD Edwards EnterpriseOne BrowsER directly from within Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Form Design Aid (FDA) or Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Report Design Aid (RDA) by choosing BrowsER from the View menu.

  3. On Browsing, click the plus (+) and minus (–) buttons to expand or collapse the hierarchical view of events for interactive forms or batch report sections.

    Each ER appears beneath the event with which it is associated and beside a control that contains event rule logic. If it does not appear beside a control, then no event rule logic exists on that control.

  4. To disable an ER line, select the line and then click Disable button.

  5. To enable a disabled line, select the line and then click Enable button.

    You cannot print or modify ER from any BrowsER form.

  6. To hide objects with no ER, right-click anywhere on the BrowsER window and select Hide objects with no ER from the popup menu.

  7. To start a search or filter, right-click anywhere on the Browsing form and select Search or Filter ER Records from the popup menu.
