A Idoc Script Functions and Variables

This appendix provides information about Idoc Script functions and variables, which you can use for customizing Oracle WebCenter Content.

Idoc Script has many built-in global functions. Functions perform actions, including string comparison and manipulation routines, date formatting, and ResultSet manipulation. Some functions also return results, such as the results of calculations or comparisons.

Information is passed to functions by enclosing the information in parentheses after the name of the function. Pieces of information that are passed to a function are called parameters. Some functions do not take parameters; some functions take one parameter; some take several. There are also functions for which the number of parameters depends on how the function is being used.

In addition to the built-in global functions, you can define new global functions, including custom classes, with Java code. For more information, see Getting Started with Content Server Components, and Creating Custom Components.

Along with built-in functions, Idoc Script uses a range of variables. Variables which are used within Idoc scripts include dynamic variables, conditional dynamic variables, and page display variables. Many of these variables can be used both within scripts and specified individually in the WebCenter Content config.cfg and intradoc.cfg files, or used in a web browser URL.

For details about variables that are used only in .cfg files or in a web browser URL, see Configuration Variables in Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Reference for Oracle WebCenter Content.

A.1 abortToErrorPage()

Aborts the current page and displays an error message.

  • This function evaluates the StatusCode variable, and if a negative numeric value (-1) is returned, substitutes the display of the current page with an error page.
  • The StatusMessage variable can be used as the error message string.

Parameters

The only parameter is the error message string.

Output

Returns the error message string on an error page.

Example

Aborts the current page and displays Access Denied as an error message:

<$abortToErrorPage("Access Denied")$>

Aborts the current page and displays the value of the StatusMessage variable as an error message:

<$abortToErrorPage("<$StatusMessage$>")$>

A.2 addEmptyOption

Specifies that a metadata field option list has blank value as the first option in the list.

Output

  • Returns TRUE if the first value in the option is blank.
  • Returns FALSE if the first value in the option list is not blank.

A.19 cacheInclude()

This function acts similar to the inc() Idoc Script function. It will evaluate the dynamic HTML include corresponding to includeName and display it on the page. The difference is that if possible, it will pull the rendered html from a cache, instead of evaluating it again.

For more information, see Keywords Versus Functions.

Type and Usage

Parameters

Takes three required parameters and two optional parameters. For example:

cacheInclude(includeName, scope, lifeSpan[,  cacheName][, key]) 
Parameter Description
includeName The name of the dynamic HTML element to evaluate.
scope Set to session if each user should see different html, or application if all users will see the same thing.
lifeSpan The lifespan of this include in the cache, in seconds.
cacheName Optional: Use if you want to place the data into a named cache instead of the default cache. If an empty string is passed, the include will be cached into the default cache for the session.
key Optional: If you do not want automatic name-scoping of your cache to prevent conflicts, you can specify a unique key here.

Example

This will cache the std_page_begin include for each user for ten minutes. This is about 10 KB per user in the cache.

<$cacheInclude("std_page_begin", "session", 600)$> 

A.20 captionEntryWidth

Specifies the width of a metadata field, as a percentage.

Output

Returns the width of the current metadata field, as a percentage.

    <$captionFieldWidth="30%"$>
    <$captionEntryWidth="70%"$>
<$elseif isEditMode$>
    <$captionFieldWidth="20%"$>
    <$captionEntryWidth="80%"$>
<$endif$>

A.22 clearSchemaData()

Clears the data from a schema ResultSet.

Type and Usage

Parameters

This function can take zero, one, or two parameters.

  • If passed zero arguments, it clears the data binder. Returns no value.
  • If passed one argument, the argument is the name of the ResultSet to clear the values from the current row. Returns no value.
  • If passed two arguments, the first argument is the ResultSet name and the second argument is the key identifying the data object to clear. Returns 0 if the data does not exist or 1 if it does exist. The use is True() or False() to conditionally execute scripts based on the return value.

Example

<$clearSchemaData()$>

A.23 ClientControlled

A.24 computeDocUrl()

This function computes the URL to a content item based on the data on the page. computeDocUrl() accepts two boolean (0 or 1) arguments. The first argument is that the URL is relative or absolute and the second argument is should be that the exception be thrown or ignored.

For example, this function can be called to generate a URL to an item when looping over a ResultSet of items.

The following information must be present on the page:

  • dDocAccount (optional)
  • dDocName
  • dDocType
  • dProcessingState
  • dRevLabel
  • dSecurityGroup
  • dWebExtension

computeDocUrl() accepts two boolean (0 or 1) arguments. There is now a second parameter. The values are the same as the first parameter set to TRUE (1) or FALSE (0). Default value is false.

A.25 computeRenditionUrl()

Returns the URL of a given rendition.

Parameters

Takes three parameters:

  • The first parameter is the URL of the content item.
  • The second parameter is the dRevLabel value.
  • The third parameter is the dRendition1 value. Possible values of dRendition1 include:
    • T = Thumbnail rendition
    • X = XML rendition

Output

Returns the complete URL of the rendition as a string.

Example

Returns the URL of the rendition as a string.

<$computeRenditionUrl(url, dRevLabel, dRendition1)$>

A.26 CONTENT_LENGTH

This variable is specific to the current gateway program request.

Note:

This setting is obsolete for Content Server version 7.0 and later. The web server filter no longer sends this information.

Output

Returns the content length in bytes.

Example

As information output on a page or to a log:

CONTENT_LENGTH=0

As part of an Idoc Script statement or evaluation:

<$if CONTENT_LENGTH$>
<!--statement-->

Set this variable in the URL of a service request to display only the form. The std_page_begin and std_page_end include files will not be displayed.

Output

None.

A.28 CURRENT_DATE

Returns the current date and time.

This variable is similar to the dateCurrent() function, which is used more frequently.

Output

Returns a string formatted according to the user locale.

Example

Used as script:

<$CURRENT_DATE$>

See Also

A.29 CURRENT_ROW

Evaluates which row of a ResultSet you are in.

The first row in a ResultSet is row zero (0).

Type and Usage

Output

Returns the row number.

Example

Used as script:

<$CURRENT_ROW$>

A.30 dateCurrent()

Returns the current date and time.

Can be used to return the current date and time to the user or to create commands using date evaluations.

Parameters

The only optional parameter is an integer, which adjusts the date by the specified number of days relative to the current date.

Output

Returns a date formatted according to the user locale.

Example

In the following examples, dates are formatted according to the default English-US locale:

m/d/yy h:mm XM

The following returns the current date and the current time (for example, 8/12/01 1:55 PM):

<$dateCurrent()$>

Returns the date ten days in the future and the current time (for example, 8/22/01 1:55 PM):

<$dateCurrent(10)$>

Returns the date ten days in the past and the current time (for example, 8/2/01 1:55 PM):

A.31 dcShowExportLink

This function verifies if the Dynamic Converter has been configured to convert a content item. The returned value is based on the value for dFormat for the item.

This function is typically used on Search Result pages to conditionally display a Dynamic Converter link.

Output

  • Returns TRUE if the Dynamic Converter is configured to convert the content item.

  • Returns FALSE if the Dynamic Converter is not configured.

Example

<$QueryText = "dDocTitle <substring> `test`"$>
<$executeService("GET_SEARCH_RESULTS")$>
<$loop SearchResults$>
    <$if dcShowExportLink()$>
        <a href="<$HttpCgiPath$>?IdcService=
        GET_DYNAMIC_CONVERSION&dID=<$dID$>">
        HTML Conversion of <$dDocTitle$></a>
    <$endif$>
<$endloop$>

A.32 ddAppendIndexedColumnResultSet()

This function loads a dynamicdata table into a ResultSet. It is very similar to ddLoadIndexedColumnResultSet. The main difference is that if the Idoc Script ResultSet already exists, the new ResultSet created from the dynamicdata table is appended to it. Any fields found in the dynamicdata table, but not in the target ResultSet, are automatically added.

Type and Usage

Parameters

The following table lists parameters for this function.

Parameters Description

dataTableName

The name of the dynamicdata table to load.

idocTableName

The name of the ResultSet into which the dynamicdata table should be appended.

indexColumn

The name of an indexed column in the dynamicdata table.

indexValue

The value to use to select a section of the original table. This value will be checked in a case-insensitive manner against the indexColumn value in each row. If it matches, that row is loaded into the ResultSet; otherwise, it is skipped.

mappingTableName

The name of a dynamicdata table used to rename the columns of the final ResultSet. The renaming is done by mapping the column names in the specified mapping table to the values of the first row in the same table. This is done exactly the same in ddLoadResultSet.

Output

If the dynamicdata table is successfully loaded, it returns TRUE.

Example

<@dynamicdata MyDataTable@>
<?commatable indexedColumns="fieldA"?>
fieldA, fieldB, fieldC
1,      2,       3
4,      5,       6
1,      3,       9
<@end@>


<$exec rsCreateResultSet("MyResultSet", "fieldA,fieldB")$>
<$exec rsAppendNewRow("MyResultSet")$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldA = "first value"$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldB = "second value"$>
<$exec ddLoadIndexedColumnResultSet("MyDataTable", "MyResultSet", "fieldA", "1")$>
<$exec rsFirst("MyResultSet")$>
<$foo = MyResultSet.fieldB$>    [[% (foo == 'second value') %]]<$exec rsNext("MyResultSet")$>
<$bar = MyResultSet.fieldC$>    [[% (bar == '3') %]]

A.33 ddAppendResultSet()

This function loads a dynamicdata table into a ResultSet. It is very similar to ddLoadResultSet. The main difference is that if the Idoc Script ResultSet already exists, the new ResultSet created from the dynamicdata table is appended to it. Any fields found in the dynamicdata table, but not in the target ResultSet, are automatically added.

Type and Usage

Parameters

The following table lists parameters for the function.

Parameters Description

dataTableName

The name of the dynamicdata table to load.

idocTableName

The name of the ResultSet into which the dynamicdata table should be appended.

mappingTableName

The name of a dynamicdata table used to rename the columns of the final ResultSet. The renaming is done by mapping the column names in the specified mapping table to the values of the first row in the same table. This is done exactly the same in ddLoadResultSet.

Output

If the dynamicdata table is successfully loaded, it returns TRUE.

Example

<@dynamicdata MyDataTable@>
field1, field2, field3
a,      b,       c
d,      e,       f
<@end@>


<$exec rsCreateResultSet("MyResultSet", "field1,field2")$>
<$exec rsAppendNewRow("MyResultSet")$>
<$MyResultSet.field1 = "first value"$>
<$MyResultSet.field2 = "second value"$>
<$exec ddAppendResultSet("MyDataTable", "MyResultSet")$>
<$exec rsFirst("MyResultSet")$>
<$foo = MyResultSet.field1$>    [[% (foo == 'first value') %]]
<$exec rsNext("MyResultSet")$>
<$bar = MyResultSet.field3$>    [[% (bar == 'c') %]]

A.34 ddApplyTableSortToResultSet()

This function sorts an existing ResultSet using the rules defined in a particular dynamicdata table.

Type and Usage

Parameters

The following table lists parameters for the function.

Parameters Description

dataTableName

The name of the dynamicdata table to use for its sorting rules.

resultSetName

The name of the ResultSet into which the dynamicdata table should be appended.

Output

If the sorting is successfully performed, it returns TRUE.

Example

<@dynamicdata MyDataTable@>
<?commatable sortcolumn="order" sortType="int" sortOrder="asc"?>
user,    service,            order
jane,    DOC_INFO,           10
bob,     GET_SEARCH_RESULTS, 20
annette, CHECKIN_NEW,        30
<@end@>


<$exec rsCreate("MyResultSet")$>
<$exec rsAppendNewRow("MyResultSet")$>
<$MyResultSet.user = "james"$>
<$MyResultSet.service = "GET_FILE"$>
<$MyResultSet.order = 75$>
<$exec rsAppendNewRow("MyResultSet")$>
<$MyResultSet.user = "zoe"$>
<$MyResultSet.service = "DOC_INFO_BY_NAME"$>
<$MyResultSet.order = 20$>
<$exec ddApplyTableSortToResultSet("MyDataTable", "MyResultSet")$>

A.35 ddGetFieldList()

This function takes a dynamicdata table and returns a comma-separated string containing the names of the columns in the table. It is expected that many dynamicdata tables consist only of field names without any rows just to supply comma-separated lists of values to code in the Content Server system.

Type and Usage

Parameters

This function has one parameter, dataTableName, which is the name of the dynamicdata table to load.

Output

If the dynamictable exists, it returns True.

Example

<@dynamicdata MyDataTable@>
foo,bar,baz
<@end@>


<$fieldList = ddGetFieldList("MyDataTable")$>
<$trace(fieldList, "#console")$> [[% Outputs: foo,bar,baz %]]

A.36 ddIncludePreserveValues()

This function executes a resource include, but protects values specified by a dynamicdata table from being changed. The column names in the data table are used as the list of variables names that must be protected. These variables are protected by temporarily caching them, calling the include, and then resetting those variables back to the cached values. If a variable was null, it is set to blank.

If one of the column names in the table starts with a dollar symbol ($), then the string that follows is assumed to be the name of a ResultSet. In that case, it is the pointer to the ResultSet that is temporarily cached in memory and then replaced after the resource include has finished executing. If the ResultSet did not exist at the time of caching, then any ResultSet that exists with that key at the end are removed. If the ResultSet is active at the time it has its pointer cached, new ResultSets of the same name can be created during the call of the include and the previously active ResultSet will be recovered appropriately without disturbing the loop. The one side effect is that if a new ResultSet is created that temporarily replaces the active ResultSet, then the algorithm for variable substitution that retrieves values first from active ResultSets can find values for a variable from the cached active ResultSet (assuming the variable is not found as a field in an active ResultSet with higher precedence). The cached active ResultSet maintains its place in the active ResultSet stack,

Type and Usage

Parameters

The following table lists parameters for the function.

Parameters Description

includeName

The name of the resource include to execute.

dataTableName

The name of the dynamicdata table to use for preserving local data and ResultSets.

Output

A string representing the output of the executed resource include.

Example

<@dynamicdata MyPreservedFields@>
foo, bar, $baz
<@end@>


<@dynamichtml my_include@>
    <$foo = "tempValue1"$>
    <$bar = "tempValue2"$>
<@end@>


<$foo = 5$>
<$ddIncludePreserveValues("my_include", "MyPreservedFields")$>
<$trace(foo, "#console")$>   [[% Outputs: 5 %]]

A.37 ddLoadIndexedColumnResultSet()

This function loads a dynamicdata table into a ResultSet. This function is similar to ddLoadResultSet except that it only loads those rows whose values for indexColumn match indexValue. The comparisons made on this column are case-insensitive.

Type and Usage

idocTableName

The name of the ResultSet into which the dynamicdata table should be loaded.

indexColumn

The name of an indexed column in the dynamicdata table.

indexValue

The value to use to select a section of the original table. This value will be checked in a case-insensitive manner against the indexColumn value in each row. If the values match, that row is loaded into the ResultSet; otherwise, the row is skipped.

mappingTableName

The name of a dynamicdata table used to rename the columns of the final ResultSet. The renaming is done by mapping the column names in the specified mapping table to the values of the first row in the same table. This is done exactly the same in ddLoadResultSet.

dataTableName

The name of the dynamicdata table to load.

idocTableName

The name of the ResultSet into which the dynamicdata table should be loaded.

mappingTableName

The name of a dynamicdata table used to rename the columns of the final ResultSet. The renaming is done by mapping the column names in the specified mapping table to the values of the first row in the same table. This is done exactly the same in ddLoadIndexedColumnResultSet.

A.39 ddMergeIndexedColumnResultSet()

This function merges a dynamicdata table into a ResultSet. This function is similar to ddMergeResultSet except that it only merges those rows whose values for indexColumn match indexValue. The comparisons made on this column are case-insensitive.

Type and Usage

Parameters

The following table lists parameters for the function.

Parameters Description

dataTableName

The name of the dynamicdata table to load.

idocTableName

The name of the ResultSet into which the dynamicdata table should be merged.

indexColumn

The name of an indexed column in the dynamicdata table.

indexValue

mergeType

The type of merge to perform. Set this to replace to prevent the merge from appending any new rows. Any other value for this parameter is treated as append.

mappingTableName

The name of a dynamicdata table which should be used to rename the columns of the final ResultSet. This renaming is done by mapping the column names in this mapping table to the values of the first row in this same table. This is done exactly as it is done in ddLoadResultSet.

1,      3,       9
<@end@>


<$exec rsCreateResultSet("MyResultSet", "fieldA,fieldB,fieldC")$>
<$exec rsAppendNewRow("MyResultSet")$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldA = "4"$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldB = "8"$>

<$bar = MyResultSet.fieldC$>    [[% (bar == '59') %]]

A.40 ddMergeResultSet()

This function merges a dynamicdata table into an existing ResultSet. If the target ResultSet does not exist, then this function acts exactly like ddLoadResultSet and the target ResultSet is simply created. Otherwise, the merge is performed using the first column of the new ResultSet as the merge key. By default, the merge appends any rows from the new ResultSet that do not match any rows in the existing Idoc Script table, unless the mergeType parameter is set to replace, in which case no new rows are added to the Idoc Script ResultSet.

Note that this merge does not replace all rows matched by a particular row of the new ResultSet, just the first one that it finds. The matching is case-sensitive. The mergeType parameter is optional and defaults to null.

Type and Usage

Parameters

The following table lists parameters for the function.

Parameters Description

dataTableName

The name of the dynamicdata table to load.

idocTableName

The name of the ResultSet into which the dynamicdata table should be merged.

mergeType

The type of merge to perform. Set this to replace to prevent the merge from appending any new rows. Any other value for this parameter is treated as append.

mappingTableName

The name of a dynamicdata table which should be used to rename the columns of the final ResultSet. This renaming is done by mapping the column names in this mapping table to the values of the first row in this same table. This is done exactly as it is done in ddLoadResultSet.

Output

If the dynamicdata table is successfully merged, it returns TRUE.

Example

<@dynamicdata MyDataTable@>
fieldA, fieldB, fieldC
1,      2,       3
4,      5,       6
<@end@>


<$exec rsCreateResultSet("MyResultSet", "fieldA,fieldB,fieldC")$>
<$exec rsAppendNewRow("MyResultSet")$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldA = "4"$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldB = "52"$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldC = "18"$>
<$exec ddMergeResultSet("MyDataTable", "MyResultSet", "replace")$>
<$exec rsFirst("MyResultSet")$>
<$foo = MyResultSet.fieldB$>    [[% (foo == 52) %]]
<$bar = MyResultSet.#numRows$>  [[% (bar == 1) %]]

A.41 ddMergeUsingIndexedKey()

This function pulls selective rows from a dynamicdata table and use them to replace particular row values in a target ResultSet. The values of a particular column in the target ResultSet are used as values for an index look up into the dynamicdata table. The subtable retrieved is used to replace column values in the target ResultSet that have matching column names. The dynamicdata table is assumed to have only one row in the subtable selected out by the index value. If it has more than one row, only the first row is used to merge in values into the target ResultSet.

Type and Usage

Parameters

The following table lists parameters for the function.

Parameters Description

dataTableName

The name of the dynamicdata table to load.

idocTableName

The name of the ResultSet into which the dynamicdata table should be merged.

indexColumn

The name of an indexed column in the dynamicdata table and the name of the column in the target ResultSet from which values are retrieved to select out subtables in the dynamicdata table.

mappingTableName

The name of a dynamicdata table which should be used to rename the columns of the final ResultSet. This renaming is done by mapping the column names in this mapping table to the values of the first row in this same table. This is done exactly as it is done in ddLoadResultSet.

Output

If the dynamicdata table is successfully merged, it returns TRUE.

Example

<@dynamicdata MyDataTable@>
<?commatable indexedColumns="fieldA"?>
fieldA, fieldB, fieldC
1,      2,       3
4,      5,       6
7,      8,       9
<@end@>


<$exec rsCreateResultSet("MyResultSet", "fieldA,fieldB,fieldC")$>
<$exec rsAppendNewRow("MyResultSet")$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldA = "4"$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldB = "8"$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldB = "23"$>
<$exec rsAppendNewRow("MyResultSet")$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldA = "7"$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldB = "20"$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldB = "41"$>
<$exec rsAppendNewRow("MyResultSet")$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldA = "8"$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldB = "21"$>
<$MyResultSet.fieldB = "59"$>
<$exec ddMergeIndexedColumnResultSet("MyDataTable", "MyResultSet", "fieldA")$>
<$exec rsFirst("MyResultSet")$>
<$foo = MyResultSet.fieldB$>    [[% (foo == '5') %]]
<$exec rsNext("MyResultSet")$>
<$bar = MyResultSet.fieldC$>    [[% (bar == '9') %]]
<$exec rsNext("MyResultSet")$>
<$bar = MyResultSet.fieldC$>    [[% (bar == '59') %]]

A.42 ddSetLocal()

This function takes a dynamicdata table and iterates over it, setting local data values for each row. The first column of the table is used as the list of keys, while the second column is used as the list of values.

Type and Usage

Parameters

This function has one parameter, dataTableName, which is the name of the dynamicdata table to load.

Output

If the dynamicdata table exists, it returns TRUE.

Example

<@dynamicdata MyDataTable@>
key, value
foo, 15
bar, 23
baz, 77
<@end@>


<$exec ddSetLocal("MyDataTable")$>
<$tmp1 = #local.foo$>   [[% (tmp1 == '15') %]]
<$tmp2 = #local.bar$>   [[% (tmp2 == '23') %]]
<$tmp3 = #local.baz$>   [[% (tmp3 == '77') %]]

A.43 ddSetLocalByColumnsFromFirstRow()

This function takes the first row of a dynamicdata table and, using the column names as keys, sets a local value for each column and its corresponding value. If there is no first row, then this function does nothing. This can be a useful method for quickly setting a lot of local values. The filterInclude and includeColumns properties of the dynamicdata table are ignored.

Type and Usage

Parameters

This function has one parameter, dataTableName, which is the name of the dynamicdata table to load.

Output

If the dynamicdata table was successfully loaded, it returns TRUE.

Example

<@dynamicdata MyDataTable@>
fieldA, fieldB, fieldC
foo,    bar,    baz
<@end@>


<$exec ddSetLocalByColumnsFromFirstRow("MyDataTable")$>
<$tmpStr1 = #local.fieldA$>   [[% (tmpStr1 == 'foo') %]]
<$tmpStr2 = #local.fieldC$>   [[% (tmpStr2 == 'baz') %]]

A.44 ddSetLocalByColumnsFromFirstRowIndexed()

This function takes the first row of a dynamicdata table, and, using the column names as keys, sets a local value for each column and its corresponding value. If there is no first row, then this function does nothing. This function is almost identical to ddSetLocalByColumnsFromFirstRow(). The only difference is that this function uses the first row given an indexed column and value instead of the very first row of the dynamicdata table. If no indexed row is found, then this function does nothing.

Type and Usage

Parameters

The following table lists parameters for the function.

Parameters Description

dataTableName

The name of the dynamicdata table to load.

indexColumn

The name of an indexed column in the dynamicdata table.

indexValue

The value to use to select a row of the original table. This value will be checked in a case-insensitive manner against the indexColumn in each row. If it matches, that row will be used and the rest of the table will be ignored.

Output

If the dynamicdata table is successfully loaded, it returns TRUE.

Example

<@dynamicdata MyDataTable@>
<?commatable indexedColumns="fieldB"?>
fieldA, fieldB, fieldC
1,      2,      3
4,      5,      6
7,      8,      9
3,      5,      2

A.51 docLoadResourceIncludes()

Loads all the includes in a specified content item for use in the display of the current page.

  • The content item specified must have the file extension .idoc.

  • This function sets StatusCode as a side effect. Use the abortToErrorPage function if the specified file must successfully load for the page to correctly display.

Parameters

Takes a CGI-encoded parameter list that specifies a content item that is checked into Content Server. The parameter options are listed in the following table.

Optional Parameters Description

dID

If dID is not present, dDocName and RevisionSelectionMethod must be present. A rendition of the revision of the content item with this ID will be returned, if it exists, and the RevisionSelectionMethod parameter does not exist or has the value Specific.

dDocName

It is recommended that dDocName be present in all requests for content items where the dDocName is known. Error messages assume that it is present, as do other features such as forms.

  • If dDocName is not present, dID must be present and RevisionSelectionMethod must not be present.

  • If RevisionSelectionMethod is present, a rendition of a revision of the content item with this name with be returned, if it exists.

  • If RevisionSelectionMethod is not present, dDocName can be used in error messages.

RevisionSelectionMethod

If present, dDocName must be present. The value of this variable is the method used to compute a dID value from the specified dDocName value. The RevisionSelectionMethod value can be Specific, Latest, or LatestReleased.

  • Specific: The dDocName is ignored, dID is required and is used to get a specific revision.

  • Latest: The latest revision of the content item (including revisions in a workflow) is used to compute the dID value.

  • LatestReleased: The latest released revision of the content item is used to compute the dID value.

Rendition

  • If not present, Rendition defaults to Primary. This parameter specifies the rendition of the content item.

  • If the value is Primary, Web, or Alternate, the primary, web-viewable, or alternate rendition of the selected revision is returned.

Note:

When used in HCSP pages, the ampersand character (&) in the CGI-encoded parameter list must be changed to &amp;.

Output

None.

Example

Loads the resource includes in the primary vault rendition of the latest revision of mydoc.

<$docLoadResourceIncludes("dDocName=mydoc&RevisionSelectionMethod=Latest")$>

A.52 docRootFilename()

Retrieves the file name of a file without the extension or directory path.

  • This function is typically used to extract the content ID (dDocName) part of a static URL controlled by Content Server.

Parameters

Takes one parameter:

  • The only parameter is a path and file name.

Output

Returns the file name as a string.

Example

Returns the value mydoc:

docRootFilename("/groups/public/documents/adacct/mydoc.pdf")

A.53 DocTypeSelected

Evaluates whether the Type of the current content item matches the Type in the active ResultSet.

Output

  • Returns TRUE if the content item Types match.

  • Returns FALSE if the content item Types do not match.

Example

Returns value based on whether the content item type matches the type for the ResultSet.

<$DocTypeSelected$>

A.54 DocUrl

Retrieves the URL of the file in the weblayout/ directory. This variable is evaluated once per content item, not once per service call.

Output

Returns the URL of the file as a string.

Example

Used to build URL links to content items.

<$if HasUrl$>
    <a href="<$DocUrl$>"><$dDocName$></a>
<$else$>
    <$dDocName$>
<$endif$>

A.55 docUrlAllowDisclosure()

Evaluates whether a URL can be disclosed to the current user.

Parameters

The only parameter is an absolute path, such as the following:

http://mycomputer/domain/groups/.../documents/mydoc.pdf

A full relative path can be used, such as the following:

/oracle/domain/.../documents/mydoc.pdf).

Output

Returns a Boolean value.

  • Returns TRUE if the URL can be disclosed.

  • Returns FALSE if the URL is restricted.

Example

Determines if the user can view the URL of the mydoc.pdf document.

<$docUrlAllowDisclosure("/domain/groups/documents/mydoc.pdf")$>

A.56 DownloadApplet

Enables the multiple file Download Applet.

  • When set to TRUE, the Download Applet is enabled so that multiple files can be downloaded from a search results page.

  • When set to FALSE, the Download Applet is disabled.

  • Default is FALSE.

Note:

The DownloadApplet/UploadApplet will continue working as applets.

Type and Usage

Location

  • System Properties, Options tab, Enable download applet

  • Administration, Admin Server, General Configuration menu option, Enable download applet

  • IntradocDir/config/config.cfg

Example

As a configuration setting, enables the Download Applet:

DownloadApplet=true

As script, evaluates the condition of the Download Applet:

<$DownloadApplet$>

A.57 DownloadSuggestedName

Retrieves the default path and suggested name for a file being downloaded.

The suggested name is based on the original file name of the content item.

Output

Returns the path and suggested name for the downloaded file as a string.

Example

Returns the path and suggested name for the downloaded file:

<$DownloadSuggestedName$>

A.58 dpGet()

Function used to return the value set by the dpSet function.

Both dpGet and dpSet are used to control the logic of Content Profile rules that are to be displayed. Commonly, a user may create an activation condition that sets a value for a specified key. Even if the condition evaluates to false (that is, the rule fails to fire), the key is set. Another rule can now access the key and retrieve the value when evaluating its activation condition. By using these two functions, a user can create a dependency between rules. For example, a user may want a rule to be evaluated only when a preceding rule is evaluated.

Parameters

Takes one parameter:

  • Key: The designation for the value to be returned.

Example

<$myValue = dpGet("myKey")$>

See Also

A.59 dpPromote()

Function used to 'promote' values from a rule evaluation context into the request context. After the evaluation of all rules, the key and value specified by this function are pushed into the local data.

Parameters

Takes two parameters:

  • The first parameter is the designation for the value to be returned.

  • The second parameter is the value to be returned.

Example

This example causes the Title field to be hidden on checkin pages:

<$dpPromote("dDocTitle:isHidden", "1")$>

See Also

A.60 dpPromoteRs()

Similar to dpPromote, this function allows a ResultSet that is generated in a profile rule to be promoted to the request context. The ResultSet is pushed into the DataBinder after the evaluation of all rules. The values are not evaluated during rule activation or manipulation but are available for page presentation.

Parameters

This function can take two parameters:

  • The first parameter is the name of the ResultSet to push into the data.

  • Optional. The second parameter is an alternate name for the ResultSet.

See Also

A.61 dpSet()

Function used to set temporary values during the evaluation of activation conditions or rule values anywhere Idoc Script is evaluated.

The values are set into a working area and can be retrieved by the dpGet function call. The key and value that is set does not persist, but is globally available for the profile being evaluated. All key/value pairs can be accessed by the rules of the profile.

Both dpGet and dpSet are used to control the logic of Content Profile rules that are to be displayed. Commonly, a user may create an activation condition that sets a value for a specified key. Even if the condition evaluates to false (that is, the rule fails to fire), the key is set. Another rule can now access the key and retrieve the value when evaluating its activation condition. By using these two functions, a user can create a dependency between rules. For example, a user may want a rule to be evaluated only when a preceding rule is evaluated.

Parameters

This function takes two parameters:

  • Key: The designation for the value to be returned.

  • Value: Value associated with the key.

Example

<$dpSet("myKey", "1")$>

See Also

A.62 dWfName

<td><span class=tableEntry><$dWfName$></span></td>

A.63 dWfStepName

Retrieves the name of the current step in the workflow.

Type and Usage

Output

Returns the name of the current step as a string.

Example

The following code in the IdcHomeDir/resources/core/templates/workflow_info.htm template page is used to display the current step name on the Workflow Step Information page:

<td align=right><span class=infoLabel><$lc("wwCurrentStep")$>
</span></td>
<td><span class=tableEntry>
    <$loop WorkflowStep$>
    <$dWfStepName$>
    <$exec RequiredUsers = dWfStepWeight$>
    <$if isTrue(dWfStepIsAll)$><$exec RequiredUsers = 0$><$endif$>
    <$endloop$></span>
</td>

A.64 EmptyAccountCheckinAllowed

Checks if an account must be specified on the checkin page.

Used on the Standard Page Resources page to display an error message if an account is not specified.

Output

  • Returns TRUE if an Account value is required.

  • Returns FALSE if an Account value is not required.

Example

Evaluates whether an account number is required and displays an error message.

<$if not EmptyAccountCheckinAllowed$>
    <$isRequired = 1, requiredMsg = "Please specify an account."$>
<$endif$>

A.65 EnableDocumentHighlight

Enables highlighting of full-text search terms in PDF, text, and HTML files.

  • When set to TRUE, search term highlighting is enabled.

  • When set to FALSE, search term highlighting is disabled.

  • Default is FALSE after installation of Content Server.

  • Default is TRUE after installation of PDF Converter.

Type and Usage

Location

  • System Properties, Options tab, Enable search keyword highlighting

  • Administration, Admin Server, General Configuration menu option, Enable search keyword highlighting

  • IntradocDir/config/config.cfg

Example

As a configuration setting:

EnableDocumentHighlight=false

As script, returns the value of the configuration setting:

<$EnableDocumentHighlight$>

A.66 encodeHtml()

Idoc function used to filter data input for illegal or corruptive HTML constructs. This function is used by default in Threaded Discussions, a component available during installation.

All input data received by Content Server when using the unsafe value for the rule parameter applies only to well-known unsafe script tags. This functionality can be altered by using the HtmlDataInputFilterLevel configuration variable to change the filtering that is done.

Type and Usage

Parameters

Takes two required and one optional parameter:

  • The first parameter is the string to encode.

  • The second parameter is the rule to apply when encoding HTML constructs. The following values are allowed:

    • none: no conversion is done to HTML constructs.

    • unsafe: only well-known unsafe script tags are encoded.

    • exceptsafe: well-known safe script tags are not encoded.

    • lfexceptsafe: recommended for use when extended comments are entered by users and line breaks in the original text must be preserved.

  • An optional parameter is also available that specifies if long strings without space characters are to be broken up and what maximum word size to apply. Specify either wordbreak or nowordbreak.

Output

Returns the encoded string.

See Also

A.67 entryCount

Retrieves the number of times the current workflow step has been entered by the current revision.

  • This variable can be used to create conditional statements, but it should not be hard-coded or altered.

  • This variable is localized in the companion file and maintained in the key:

    <step_name>@<workflow_name>.entryCount

Type and Usage

Output

Returns the entry count as an integer.

Example

The following code defines a jump called MaxEntry, which exits to the parent workflow and notifies the reviewers if the last time the step was entered was more than one week ago:

<$if wfCurrentGet("entryCount")==2$>
    <$wfSet("WfJumpName","MaxEntry")$>
    <$wfSet("WfJumpTargetStep",wfExit(0,0))$>
    <$wfSet("WfJumpEntryNotifyOff","0")$>
<$endif$>

A.68 eval()

Evaluates a variable definition as if it were Idoc Script. Can be used to recursively evaluate a literal string.

Type and Usage

Parameters

The only parameter is a variable that defines a string to be evaluated as Idoc Script.

Output

Returns the parameter string, with any Idoc Script in the variable definition resolved.

Example

Variable one is assigned the string CompanyName, and variable two is assigned a string that includes variable one within Idoc Script delimiters. On a page, variable one presents the string CompanyName, variable two presents the string Welcome to <$one$> and eval(two) presents the string Welcome to CompanyName.

<$one="CompanyName"$>
<$two="Welcome to <$one$>"$>
<$one$><br>
<$two$><br>
<$eval(two)$>

Say you wanted to exclude all metadata fields that have the prefix xPrefix in their names. You could use the eval() function to dynamically write and evaluate Idoc Script for this purpose:

<$loop DocMetaDefinition$>
<$if strIndexOf("xPrefix", dName) >= 0$>
    <$myScript = "<$" & dName & ":isExcluded=1$>"$>
    <$eval(myScript)$>
<$endif$>
<$endloop$>

A.69 ExclusiveCheckout

Determines whether users can check out content that was authored by another user.

  • When set to TRUE, only the author or a user with Admin permission to the security group can check out a content item.

  • When set to FALSE, users with Write permission to the security group can check out content that was authored by another user.

  • Default is FALSE.

Location

  • System Properties, Content Security tab, Allow only original contributor to check out

  • Administration, Admin Server, Content Security menu option, Allow only original contributor to check out

  • IntradocDir/config/config.cfg

Example

As a configuration setting, only original contributor can check out a content item.

ExclusiveCheckout=true

As Idoc Script, returns the value of the configuration setting:

<$ExclusiveCheckout$>

A.70 exec

Executes an Idoc Script expression and suppresses the output (does not display the expression on the page).

  • In earlier versions of Idoc Script, the exec keyword was required to suppress the value of any variable from appearing in the output file. In the current version, the exec keyword is needed only to suppress an expression from appearing in the output.

    The first line in the following example is equivalent to the last two lines:

    <$varA="stringA", varB ="stringB"$>
    <$exec varA="stringA"$>
    <$exec varB="stringB"$>
    
  • The exec keyword is typically used to evaluate behind-the-scenes code, such as specification of an include to be used later in the page.

Type and Usage

Parameters

The only parameter is an Idoc Script expression.

Output

Returns the value of the expression, but does not display the expression on the page.

Example

Evaluates the inc global function to incorporate the specified includes without displaying their code on the page:

<@dynamichtml std_definitions@>
    <$exec inc("std_page_variable_definitions")$>
    <$exec inc("define_image_files")$>
<@end@>

A.71 executeService()

Executes a Content Server service.

  • This function allows the specified service to be executed while the page is being constructed. Generally, services are executed using a tool such as IdcCommand or the CGI URL on the browser.

  • Used with dynamic server pages.

  • Services that can be called with the executeService function must be scriptable, meaning that they do not require parameter input. Scriptable services have an access level of 32 or more.

Type and Usage

Parameters

The only parameter is the name of the service to be executed. The live data in the DataBinder is used as parameters to the specified service.

Output

  • Returns a StatusCode value of 0 if the service was executed successfully.

  • Returns a StatusCode value of -1 if an error in the service execution occurred.

  • All output of the executed service is suppressed, but any ResultSets and loaded values are available.

Example

Executes a service when given a service name:

<$executeService("servicename")$>

A.72 ExternalUserAccounts

Retrieves the default roles for users who are defined by an external user base (NTLM, Active Directory, or LDAP).

Output

  • Returns a comma-delimited list of accounts, with permissions for each account specified in parentheses after the account name.

  • The #none entry grants privileges to content items that have no account assigned. The #all entry grants privileges to all accounts.

Example

As script, returns the default account information as a string:

<$ExternalUserAccounts$>

See Also

A.73 ExternalUserRoles

Retrieves the default roles for users who are defined by an external user base (NTLM, Active Directory, or LDAP).

A.75 fieldCaptionInclude

Specifies the include to use to display the caption for the metadata field.

Output

None.

Example

Sets the caption display include to std_field_caption:

<$fieldCaptionInclude = "std_field_caption"$>

A.76 fieldCaptionStyle

Specifies the style of the caption for the metadata field.

The following SPAN styles are typically used for captions. They are defined in the std_style_declaration include in the IdcHomeDir/resources/core/std_page.htm resource file:

  • searchLabel

  • infoLabel

  • tableEntry

  • requiredField

Output

Returns the name of the caption style.

Example

Sets the caption style to requiredField:

<$if isRequired and not suppressCaptionHighlighting$>
    <$fieldCaptionStyle = "requiredField"$>
<$endif$>
Generates the standard field caption:
<@dynamichtml std_field_caption@>
    <span class=<$fieldCaptionStyle$>><$fieldCaption$><$if not     isFormSubmit$><$":"$><$endif$></span>
<@end@>

See Also

A.92 ForcedConversionRules

Defines the Dynamic Converter rules that will apply forced conversions upon file checkin.

  • This is a comma-delimited list.

  • If a content item matches any of the specified conversion rules upon checkin, the file will be converted according to that rule. Each file can be converted into multiple renditions.

  • There is no default.

    Note:

    The forced conversion process does not apply the same Dynamic Converter template twice. For example, if you set ForcedConversionRules=RuleA,RuleB, but RuleA and RuleB specify the same template with a different layout, the conversion according to RuleB will not occur. (Best practice in this case would be to merge the layouts and use Idoc Script to dynamically select the appropriate layout elements.)

Type and Usage

Location

IntradocDir/config/config.cfg

Example

Used as a configuration entry:

ForcedConversionRules=Rule1,Rule2,Rule3

See Also

A.93 forceExpire()

This function can be used to force the cache for a particular include to expire. This is useful in the case of a change in the page display, such as adding new metadata fields, or if the user has saved a new query, or altered which links are viewable.

If the value for includeName is null, or an empty string, then the entire cache will be eliminated. This is useful when all includes for a particular page are placed into the same cache, and need to be expired at the same time.

For more information about keywords versus functions, see Keywords Versus Functions.

Type and Usage

Parameters

Takes two required parameters and two optional parameters. For example:

forceExpire(includeName, scope [, cacheName, key])
Parameter Description

includeName

The name of the dynamic HTML element to evaluate.

scope

Set to session if each user should see different HTML, or application if all users should see the same thing.

cacheName

Optional: if you want to place this data into a named cache instead of the default cache. If an empty string is passed, it will cache the include into the default cache for the session.

key

Optional: if you do not want automatic name-scoping of your cache to prevent conflicts, you can specify a unique key here.

Example

This can be used as a replacement for the std_page_begin include. It will verify if the user executed one of the standard service calls to modify the links on the standard left navigation bar (saving a query, altering the portal design). If so, the cached html for the standard page begin will be invalidated. Then, the next cacheInclude function will reevaluate the include, and place it back into the cache.

<$if strEquals(IdcService, "PNE_SAVE_QUERY") or strEquals(IdcService, "PNE_UPDATE_PORTAL_INFO")$>
<$forceExpire("std_main_page_begin", "session", "", "std_main_page_begin")$>
<$endif$>
<$cacheInclude("std_main_page_begin", "session", 600, "", "std_main_page_begin")$>

A.94 formatDate()

Reformats a date/time to the default date/time format.

Database-formatted dates cannot be evaluated (for example, 2001-06-15).

Long-formatted dates cannot be evaluated (for example, June 15, 2001).

Parameters

The only parameter is a string that specifies a date/time.

Output

  • Returns the date/time in the format used by dateCurrent (for example, 6/15/01 1:55 PM).

  • Returns null if the parameter cannot be evaluated.

  • If a time is not provided, returns a default time of 12:00 AM.

Example

The following example formats the date and time and displays it as 12/14/99 2:00 PM:

<$formatDate("12/14/1999 02:00 PM")$>

The following example formats the date, assigns the default time, and displays it as 9/15/03 12:00 AM:

<$formatDate("09/15/2003")$>

The following script formats and displays a specified date and time. Line one evaluates an alternate date and time format and assigns it to a custom variable. Line two displays this date to a user.

<$my_customDateTime = formatDate("06/14/2004 15:05:34")$>
Final Approval: <$my_customDateTime$>

Output:

Final Approval: 6/14/04 3:05 PM

A.95 formatDateDatabase()

<$formatDateDatabase("4/3/99")$>

A.96 formatDateDisplay()

Reformats a date/time to a date/time format for display to the user. Uses the "Display Date Format" in System Properties to format the date.

Parameters

The only parameter is a string that specifies a date/time.

Output

  • Returns the date/time in the format used.

  • Returns null if the parameter cannot be evaluated.

Example

<$formatDateDisplay$>

A.97 formatDateOnly()

Reformats a date/time to the default date format and strips out the time.

Database-formatted dates cannot be evaluated (for example, 2000-02-02).

Long-formatted dates cannot be evaluated (for example, June 12, 2001).

This script displays the current date and a date 100 days in the future. Line one assigns the current date only to a custom variable. Line two assigns a date 100 days in the future to a second custom variable. Line three displays these dates to a user (for example, Start Date: 10/12/01 and End Date: 1/20/02):

<$my_startDate = formatDateOnly(dateCurrent())$>
<$my_endDate = formatDateOnly(dateCurrent(100))$>
Start Date: <$my_startDate$> and End Date: <$my_endDate$>

A.98 formatDateOnlyDisplay()

Reformats a date to a date format for display to the user. Uses the "Display Date Format" in System Properties to format the date.

Similar to formatDateDisplay but only formats the date.

Parameters

The only parameter is a string that specifies a date.

Output

  • Returns the date in the format used.

  • Returns null if the parameter cannot be evaluated.

Example

<$formatDateOnlyDisplay$>

A.99 formatDateOnlyFull()

Reformats a date/time to the long date format and strips out the time. Database-formatted dates cannot be evaluated (for example, 2000-02-02).

This setting is deprecated for version 5.1 and later. Use formatDateWithPattern().

Parameters

The only parameter is a string that specifies a date/time.

Formats the date only and displays as June 12, 2001:

<$formatDateOnlyFull("6/12/01 3:00 PM")$>

A.100 formatDateWithPattern()

Reformats a date/time to a specified date/time pattern.

When using this variable in a program (instead of dynamic page), add !rfc to the end of the date pattern. This provides a date format that conforms to the rfc standard. If !rfc is not added, a program will try to use the locale to create the date string, but in the case of a timed update event, no locale is specified. Consequently, the output uses integers instead of strings for the day and month.

Parameters

Takes two parameters:

  • The first parameter is a date string used by the Content Server instance, or a date object created with the parseDate or dateCurrent functions.

  • The second parameter is the date/time pattern, such as MM/dd/yyyy.

    The capital letter Z denotes the use of a UTC time zone for the entry. The lowercase zzzz denotes the time offset (HHMM) from the UTC time, preceded by a plus (+) or minus (-) sign to indicate the offset.

Output

  • Returns the date/time in the format specified by the pattern parameter.

  • Returns null if the parameter cannot be evaluated.

Example

Displays Wed, 5 Jul 2006 12:08:56 -0700:

<$formatDateWithPattern(dateCurrent(),"EEE, d MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss zzzz")$>

Displays 2006-07-05 14:30:33Z:

<$formatDateWithPattern(dateCurrent(),"yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ssZ")$>

A.101 formatTimeOnly()

Reformats a date/time to the default time format and strips out the date.

Parameters

The only parameter is a string or variable that specifies a date/time.

Output

  • Returns a time only in the format used by dateCurrent (for example, 1:15 PM).

  • Returns null if the parameter cannot be evaluated.

Example

Returns the current time only:

<$formatTimeOnly(dateCurrent())$>

Formats the time only and displays as 5:00 PM:

<$formatTimeOnly("2/2/99 5:00 PM")$>

Formats the time only and displays as 6:14 PM:

<$formatTimeOnly("04/21/2001 18:14:00")$>

A.102 formatTimeOnlyDisplay()

A.109 getFieldConfigValue

This function returns a configuration flag for a specific field. If the field does not exist, the default is returned instead.

Parameters

Takes three parameters:

  • The name of a metadata field.

  • The flag to return for the field when it is found.

  • A default value to return if the field does not exist.

Output

Returns the specified configuration flag.

Example

<$caption = getFieldConfigValue("dDocTitle", "fieldCaption", lc("wwTitle"))$>

A.110 getFieldViewDisplayValue()

Returns the display value for an item in a Schema option list.

For example, assume an option list exists for a custom metadata field named Customer. In the database there is a schema table with the CustomerName column and a unique CustomerID column. On checkin the CustomerName value is visible to the user, but the CustomerID value is stored in the database. The getFieldViewDisplayValue function extracts the human-readable CustomerName value based on the CustomerID value.

Type and Usage

Parameters

Takes three parameters:

  • The first parameter is the name of the field to be used for the option list.

  • The second parameter is the name of the schema view used for the current field.

  • The third parameter is the value assigned to the field.

Output

Returns the display value.

Example

<$customerName = getFieldViewDisplayValue("xCustomer", "Customer_View", "1234")$>

A.111 getFieldViewValue()

This function is used when defining a content rule for a field. The value of a field for a content profile can be made dependent on a view by using this function. Because a field can have both a default and a derived value, the view can be used to create an interdependency between fields.

Parameters

Takes three parameters:

  • Field. The name of a metadata field. This field must have an associated view.

  • Value. A lookup key for value.

  • Column name. A column in the view's table.

Output

Returns the value in the column specified using the field value as a lookup.

Example

In the following example, the view table for the field xEmployee has a column called type. Using the value as specified in the xEmployee metadata field, this function provides a lookup into this table and returns the type column value.

getFieldViewValue("xEmployee", #active.xEmployee, "type")

A.112 getFreeMemory()

This function returns the amount of free memory in the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). This is a performance auditing function used on the System Audit Information page.

Type and Usage

Output

Example

<$freeMem = getFreeMemory()$>

See Also

A.113 getHelpPage

This function returns a relative URL to a help page based on the name of the page.

Parameters

The name of the page used.

Example

<input type=Button value="<$lc("wwQuickHelp")$>"
    onClick="QuickHelp('<$getHelpPage("QH_AdvancedSearch")$>', 'Search')">

A.114 getOptionListSize

This function returns the size of an option list. It is used to determine whether to display custom user metadata fields on the User Profile page.

Parameters

The only parameter is the option list to be sized.

Output

Returns the size of the specified option list.

A.115 getParentValue()

This function returns a parent value from a Schema view. This is needed before generating the dependent option list for the current field.

In most cases this function returns the same value as the internal parent value parameter because most option lists trigger their dependency on the unique key for the parent field. However, this is not a requirement for complex dependent choice lists.

Type and Usage

Parameters

Takes four parameters:

  • The name of the schema view used for the current field.

  • The name of the schema relation between this field and the parent field.

  • The name of the parent field.

  • The internal value for the parent field. This may be different than the value displayed on the page. This is often a unique number stored internally.

Example

<$parentValue=getParentValue("xState", "Country_State", "xCountry", "123")$>

A.116 getRequiredMsg()

This function is used on presentation pages to populate the Java script with the desired error message. The error message is set from the content rule user interface for a field that is designated as required. It returns a required message based on the following algorithm:

  1. The function looks for the fieldname:requiredMsg value.

  2. If the value exists, it is localized.

  3. If the value is undefined or the message is empty, the function returns the default message and does not localize it. To localize the message, the caller of the function must use the lc function on the default message before passing it to this function (getRequiredMsg).

Parameters

Takes two parameters:

  • Fieldname: Field associated with the error message.

  • Message: Default message to be used.

See Also

A.117 getTextFile()

Gets the web version of a text file and returns its contents to a string.

  • This can be used only with files that have a format containing text, such as text/html, text/plain, or text/xml. Specifically, the dFormat field of the content item must start with text. For example, if an HCSP file is checked in, Formats: text/hcsp is displayed in the Content Info display; therefore, the content is displayed by the getTextFile() function.

  • There must be enough information to determine the content item's web URL. The dID value is the only required metadata field.

    The following information must be present:

    • dDocName, dWebExtension, dSecurityGroup, dRevLabel, and dDocType.

    • If Accounts are enabled, dDocAccount must also be specified.

    This information is available automatically after a GET_SEARCH_RESULTS call or after a DOC_INFO call.

  • This function should be wrapped with a cacheInclude call for greater performance. That can, however, create a security issue if all docs go to the same cache.

Type and Usage

Parameters

This function does not take parameters but uses variables on the page to determine the document's URL.

Example

<$loop SearchResults$>
    <$fullDocument=getTextFile()$>
    <h2><$dDocTitle$></h2>
    <div><$fullDocument$></div>
<$endloop$>

See Also

A.118 getTotalMemory()

Type and Usage

Output

The total JVM memory in megabytes.

Example

<$totalMem = getTotalMemory()$>

See Also

A.119 getUserValue()

Retrieves the value of a user metadata field for the current user.

The parameter must refer to a column in the Users database table. Unlike the user personalization functions that have no support for global reference, information assigned to the user in the Users table can be available to the Content Server instance.

Parameters

The only parameter is a user-related variable.

Output

  • Returns the value of the metadata field for the current user.

  • Evaluates to TRUE if the user value was retrieved.

  • Evaluates to FALSE if an error in retrieval occurred.

  • Returns a StatusCode value of -1 if the value is unspecified or unknown.

Example

Returns the user type of the currently logged on user:

<$getUserValue('dUserType')$>

A.120 getValue()

This function has multiple uses:

  • Retrieves the value of a particular metadata field from local, active, or environment data.

  • Retrieves the value of a particular column from a specific ResultSet.

  • Retrieves information about ResultSet rows.

Parameters

Takes two parameters:

  • The first parameter is either the type of data or the name of a ResultSet.

  • The second parameter is the name of a metadata field, the column name, or a ResultSet row parameter.

Variations

You can also use a shorthand format that returns results identical to the getValue(arg1,arg2) function. The format uses the form <$arg1.arg2$>, where arg1 and arg2 are the literal string arguments "arg1" and "arg2" to the getValue function.

Note:

Data types (local, active, and env) and ResultSet parameters must start with the crosshatch (#) symbol.

The following parameter combinations can be used.

<$ResultSetName.#isEmpty$>

Checks if the specified ResultSet does not contain any rows.

Output

  • For output values, see the preceding subsection, Variations.

  • Returns an empty string if a value is not found.

Example

  • Gets the content ID from the ResultSet named DOC_INFO:

    <$name = getValue("DOC_INFO","dDocName")$>
    

    or

    <$name = <$DOC_INFO.dDocName$>
    
  • Checks to see if the passed parameter dDocType (which is in the local data) equals the value in the active ResultSet:

    <$loop DocTypes$>
    <$if strEquals(#active.dDocType, getValue("#local","dDocType"))$>
    <!--do special HTML for selected document type--> 
    <$endif$>
    <!-- additional statement-->
    <$endloop$>

A.122 getViewValue()

Returns the display value for an item in a Schema option list.

For example, assume an option list exists for a custom metadata field named Customer. In the database there is a schema table with the CustomerName and a unique CustomerID. On checkin the CustomerName is visible to the user but the CustomerID is what is stored in the database. The getFieldViewDisplayValue function extracts the human-readable CustomerName based on the CustomerID.

Type and Usage

Parameters

This function takes three parameters:

  • The name of the schema view used for the current field.

  • The value stored in the database for the ID.

  • The column name associated with the view.

Output

Returns the display value.

Example

<$custName = getViewValue("Customer_View", "1234", "CustomerName")$>
<$custRegion = getViewValue("Customer_View", "1234", "CustomerRegion")$>

A.123 getViewValueResultSet()

This function loads a schema table and places it on the page as a ResultSet named SchemaData. The column names in the ResultSet are the same as the names in the database table.

This function is most useful to obtain a list of dependent choices based on a parent value.

Type and Usage

Parameters

Takes three parameters:

  • The name of the schema view used.

  • The relation for the schema and the view.

  • The value for the schema parent.

Example

Assume you have a schema table and view for a list of countries. The view is named Country_view.

To output the contents of that table to the page, use the following code.

<$getViewValuesResultSet("Country_View", "", "")$>
<$loop SchemaData$>
<$count = 0, num = rsNumFields("SchemaData")$>
    <$loopwhile count < num$>
        <$fieldName=rsFieldByIndex("SchemaData", count)$>
        <$fieldName$> = <$getValue("SchemaData", fieldName)$>
        <$count = count + 1$>
    <$endloop$>
<$endloop$>

This will output the table even if you do not know the column name.

In the following example, assume you have a DCL for the fields Country and State. The list of States depends on which Country is selected. To obtain the list of States when the Country is US, use this code:

<$getViewValuesResultSet("State_View", "Country_State", "US")$>

This function does the same thing as the include keyword, except that it can take an Idoc Script variable as the parameter. For more information, see Keywords Versus Functions.

Type and Usage

Parameters

The only parameter is a variable that defines the name of an include.

Output

Displays the code that is defined in the specified include resource.

Example

Say you wanted to execute some Idoc Script for some, but not all, of your custom metadata fields. You could dynamically create includes based on the field names (such as specific_include_xComments) by executing this Idoc Script:

<$loop DocMetaDefinition$>
    <$myInclude = "specific_include_" & dName$>
    <$exec inc(myInclude)$>
<$endloop$>

Note the use of the exec keyword, which suppresses the output of the include specified by the inc function. If you don't use exec before the inc function, the HTML inside the specified include will be displayed on the page.

If the specific_include_xComments field does not exist, this code will not throw an error because the output is not being displayed.

Global include files must have the .inc extension and must be located in the DomainHome/ucm/cs/data/pages/ directory.

Type and Usage

Parameters

The only parameter is the name of a global include file without the .inc file extension.

Output

Displays the code that is defined in the specified global include file.

Example

When you change the portal page using the Update Portal function in the Web Layout Editor, a global include file called portal_message.inc is created to contain your modified text. This file is then referenced in the pne_home_page.htm template file as follows:

<$incGlobal("portal_message")$>

A.162 include

Adds the code from an include resource (defined by <@dynamichtml include_name@>) to the page.

This keyword is the most commonly used command in Idoc Script, as it allows you to reuse small chunks of code on multiple template pages.

For more information, see Includes.

Parameters

The only parameter is the name of the include.

Output

Displays the code that is defined in the specified include resource.

Example

The following includes are used to create the beginning and end of most Content Server web pages. These includes are defined in the following file:

IdcHomeDir/resources/core/standard_page.htm

Type and Usage

Parameters

The only parameter is the name of a Content Server template file without the .htm file extension.

Output

Displays the code that is defined in the specified template.

Example

Retrieves the new_look template file.

Element Description

hide all

Hides any open debug popups.

idocscript trace

Displays a tree structure view of all includes being called.

request binder

Displays information on Local Data and ResultSets. The request binder is the DataBinder sent to the server, that is, the service name and any service-specific parameters. Click a heading to expand the view of detailed information.

response binder

Displays information on Local Data and ResultSets. The response binder is the DataBinder immediately after the service is processed but before the response page is generated. Click a heading to expand the view of detailed information.

final page binder

Displays information on Local Data and ResultSets. The final page binder reflects what was changed in the DataBinder while the page was being generated. Click a heading to expand the view of detailed information.

If you are interested in API-level interaction with Content Server, consult the request and response binders. For example, when you do a SOAP request or use other service-based APIs, the information in the final page binder is meaningless. When you append IsJava=1 to the request, the response binder in HDA format is returned.

If you are interested in customization, page generation, and so on, you may want to consult the final page binder and, in some cases, determine how it differs from the response binder.

Example

Used as a configuration setting in the Content Server config.cfg file, so it applies to the entire server:

IsPageDebug=1

In a web browser, added to the end of the page's URL in the Address field:

A.257 MultiUpload

Enables the multiple-file Upload Applet.

When set to TRUE, the Upload Applet is enabled so that multiple files can be zipped and checked in as a single content item.

When set to FALSE, the Upload Applet is disabled. The default is FALSE.

To see the Upload Applet on the Checkin page, select Enable upload applet on the User Profile page, then click Update. Once the checkin begins, a progress bar shows in the applet.

DisableHttpUploadChunking is set to true by default in the config.cfg file. To enable chunking, set DisableHttpUploadChunking=false. However, if chunking is enabled, the requestaudit tracing shows the following output for every chunk uploaded:

requestaudit 11.15 15:55:47.835 IdcServerThread-32 CHUNKED_UPLOAD
dUser=sysadmin][IsJava=1] 8.361(secs)

To specify how big a file must be to trigger chunking, set AppletChunkThreshold. This defaults to 1 MB, and does not need to be set if 1 MB is sufficient.

AppletChunkThreshold=10000000

To specify the chunk size, set AppletChunkSize, which also defaults to 1 MB. This does not need to be set unless you want something other than 1 MB chunks.

AppletChunkSize=10000000

The CHUNKED_UPLOAD service is used for uploading from the Upload Applet with chunking enabled. This service takes each chunk of the upload and places it in the ucm/vault/~temp directory. As chunks are uploaded, each chunk is appended to the main file. Once the upload completes, the file is moved to its proper location in the vault.

Chunking the upload for large files has the benefit of retrying the upload from the point of failure, if a network issue occurs during the upload (without having to start the entire upload over again.

A sample CHUNKED_UPLOAD POST request body is shown below:

Note:

Square quoted parts are descriptions, not parts of actual request. This request body is only for uploading one file.

Figure A-1 Sample CHUNKED_UPLOAD POST request body

Description of Figure A-1 follows
Description of "Figure A-1 Sample CHUNKED_UPLOAD POST request body"

To see chunkedrequest tracing in the Content Server output, enable this setting in the config.cfg file, and on the System Audit Information page, enable the tracing section chunkedrequest.

ChunkedRequestTrace=true

The chunkedrequest tracing output will look like the output in the following example. Note that TranedSize means "transactioned size" or the total size uploaded so far:

chunkedrequest 11.15 15:55:47.780 IdcServerThread-32 In doUpload()
chunkedrequest 11.15 15:55:47.780 IdcServerThread-32 TranedSize: 15000000

<$dateCurrent(-1)$>
<$dateCurrent()-(24*60*60*1000)$>

Returns the time one hour in the future. The first line adds one hour using a time multiplication expression, assigns that time and date to a custom variable, and suppresses the output. The second line references the custom variable and defines that only the time is displayed:

<$exec my_customParseTime parseDate(dateCurrent()+(1000*60*60))$>
<$formatTimeOnly(my_customParseTime)$>

Returns the date one year in the future. The first line adds one year using a time multiplication expression, assigns that time and date to a custom variable, and suppresses the output. The second line references the custom variable and defines that only the date in long format is displayed:

<$exec my_customParseTime parseDate(dateCurrent()+(1000*60*60*24*365))$>
<$formatTimeOnly(my_customParseTime)$>

This script evaluates whether the date seven days in the future is greater than the expiration date and returns a message to the user if true:

<$if dOutDate$>
    <$if dateCurrent(7) > parseDate(dOutDate)$>
Content item expires in one week.
     <$endif$>
<$endif$>

This script uses parseDate within a conditional statement for customized workflow jumps. The script specifies that if the last time we entered this step was four days ago, go to the first step in workflow wf_late and set the return step to be the next step:

<$if parseDate(wfCurrentGet("lastEntryTs")) < dateCurrent(‐4)$>
    <$wfSet("wfJumpName", "lateJump")$>
    <$wfSet("wfJumpTargetStep", "step_1@wf_late")$>
    <$wfSet("wfJumpReturnStep", wfCurrentStep(1))$>
    <$wfSet("wfJumpEntryNotifyOff", "0")$>
<$endif$>

A.272 parseDateWithPattern()

Parses a date/time to a specified date/time pattern.

Dates convert to milliseconds when used with standard comparison operators. For example, the expression (60*60*1000) equals one hour.

A common usage of this function is to adjust the current time using a multiplication expression that represents a number of seconds, minutes, hours, or days.

Parameters

Takes two parameters:

  • The first parameter is a date string used by the Content Server instance, or a date object created with the parseDate or dateCurrent function.

  • The second parameter is the date/time pattern, which is a standard Java SimpleDateFormat pattern string, such as MM/dd/yyyy.

Output

Returns a Java date object, which is converted to a string for display.

Example

Displays the current date and time in the format specified by the pattern (for example, Wed, 4 Jul 2001 12:08:56 -0700):

<$parseDateWithPattern(dateCurrent(),"EEE, d MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss Z")$>

A.273 PATH_INFO

This setting is obsolete. The web server filter no longer sends this information.

Retrieves additional information about the file system path to the CGI computer.

When the virtual path is returned by the PATH_TRANSLATED variable, any additional information at the end of this path is also returned as PATH_INFO.

This variable is specific to the current gateway program request.

Output

Returns the additional virtual path information as a string.

Example

Retrieves additional CGI path information:

<$PATH_INFO$>

See Also

A.274 PATH_TRANSLATED

Retrieves the file system path to the CGI computer, for example:

c:/domain/weblayout/idcplg/idc_cgi_isapi-idcm1.dll.

This variable is specific to the current gateway program request.

Output

Returns the virtual path as a string.

Example

Retrieves the CGI path:

<$PATH_TRANSLATED$>

A.275 pneNavigation()

Enables the left sidebar navigation.

Parameters

Set as a name/value pair:

pneNavigation=1

Default value is 1 (enabled).

To disable this function, it must be set to a null string.

Output

Evaluates to TRUE or FALSE.

Example

Enables the sidebar navigation:

<$pneNavigation=1$>

To force the sidebar navigation off, set it to a null string:

<$pneNavigation=""$>

Setting the definition to other than 1 or a null string value is invalid and will not disable the sidebar navigation:

<$pneNavigation=0$>

A.276 proxiedBrowserFullCgiWebUrl

As part of an Idoc Script statement or evaluation:

<$if QUERY_STRING$>
<!--statement-->

A.279 regexMatches()

Searches a string for a specific pattern using a regular expression to do matching. Regular expression constructs can contain characters, character classes, and other classes and quantifiers. For details about the Java API for Class Pattern, see http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/index.html.

This feature is only available with JVM 1.4 or later versions; this is the default version for WebCenter Content version 7.0 and later.

Parameters

Takes two parameters:

  • The first parameter is the string to match.

  • The second parameter is the expression.

Example

The following example returns FALSE, because the string does not match the expression:

<$regexMatches("abcdef","abc")$>

The following example returns TRUE because the wild cards are present. If standard wild cards such as the asterisk (*) were used instead of the dot-asterisk (.*) convention, the match would fail.

<$regexMatches("abcdef", ".*abc.*")$>

A.280 regexReplaceAll()

Searches a string for a specific pattern using a regular expression to do matching and replacing. Regular expression constructs can contain characters, character classes, and other classes and quantifiers.

This feature is available only with JVM 1.4 or later versions; this is the default version for WebCenter Content version 11.1.1.7.0 and later.

It replaces all instances of the regular expression with the replacement string.

Parameters

Takes three parameters:

  • The first parameter is the original string.

  • The second parameter is the string to match.

  • The third parameter is the replacement string.

Example

The following example returns xyzdef xyzdef:

<$regexReplaceAll("abcdef abcdef","abc","xyz")$>

A.281 regexReplaceFirst()

Searches a string for a specific pattern using a regular expression to do matching and replaces the first instance with a replacement string. Regular expression constructs can contain characters, character classes, and other classes and quantifiers. For details about the Java API for Class Pattern, see http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/index.html.

This feature is only available only with JVM 1.4 or later versions; this is the default version for WebCenter Content version 11.1.1.7.0 and later.

Parameters

Takes three parameters:

  • The first parameter is the original string.

  • The second parameter is the string to match.

<$if REQUEST_METHOD$>
<!--statement-->

A.285 requiredMsg

Specifies the error message to be displayed if a required metadata field does not have a value upon checkin.

Output

Returns the error message as a string.

Example

Defines the required field error message for the dDocTitle metadata field as the wwSpecifyTitle localized string:

<$fieldName = "dDocTitle", fieldCaption = lc("wwTitle"), isRequired = 1, fieldType = "BigText", requiredMsg = lc("wwSpecifyTitle")$>

See Also

A.286 ResultsTitle

Defines a title for the search results page.

This variable is used by the Web Layout Editor to name the search results page and display a heading at the top of that page.

Output

Returns the page title as a string.

Example

As an HDA entry, names the search results page:

@Properties LocalData
ResultsTitle=Content Items
@end

As a script, returns the defined name:

<$if ResultsTitle$>ResultsTitle=<$url(ResultsTitle)$>

A.287 rptDisplayMapValue()

This function is meant for internal use only.

This function returns a localized string representation of an internal key code. These key codes are used to store status and state flags for content items. This function is used on the Content Information page and workflow pages to display descriptions of the internal state.

Parameters

Takes two parameters:

  • The name of the table where the keys are stored.

  • The key to be localized.

A.288 rs()

This function returns a ResultSet given the name of the ResultSet. Because the actual object it returns is a ResultSet, certain actions can be performed on the return value that cannot be performed on the return values of other functions. In particular, the loop syntax can be applied to the result.

Type and Usage

Parameters

This function has one parameter, resultSetName, which is the name of the ResultSet to return.

Output

A ResultSet object if found, otherwise null.

Example

Suppose MyResultSet is the name of a ResultSet, then you could loop on the ResultSet using the following syntax:

<$loop rs("MyResultSet")$>... Script inside loop ...<$endloop$>

This function also can be used when temporarily assigning variables when calling Idoc Script functions. In particular, the following example will temporarily assign the variable rsParam to point to the same ResultSet as pointed to by MyResultSet for the duration of the call to include the resource include my_include. If the result of the rs function is assigned to a variable, then that variable will have a shared pointer to the ResultSet creating the same effect as if rsCreateReference were called.

<$inc("my_include", rsParam=rs("MyResultSet"))$>

A.289 rsAddFields()

Adds new fields to a ResultSet. This function will only add the field if it is not already present. Note that setValue(...) can also add new fields but it only works on ResultSets that are nonempty and are on a currently valid row.

Type and Usage

Parameters

Takes two parameters:

  • The first parameter is the name of the ResultSet to get new fields (columns) added.

  • The second parameter is a comma separated list of fields to add.(the column names to be added).

Output

  • Returns TRUE if the function is successful.

  • Returns FALSE if the function fails.

Example

<$rsAddFields(rsName, fieldsList)$>

A.290 rsAddFieldsWithDefaults()

This function adds new fields to an existing ResultSet. Unlike rsAddFields, this function provides the ability to specify default values for any fields that are added. Note that rsAddFieldsWithDefaults never over-writes any data in fields that already exist; it only adds new fields to a ResultSet.

Type and Usage

Parameters

The following table lists parameters for the function.

Parameters Description

resultSetName

The name of the ResultSet.

newFields

A comma-separated list of fields to append to the ResultSet. Any specified fields that already exist in the ResultSet are ignored.

defaultValues

An optional comma-separated list of default values that are set for the new fields in each row. Each value in this list corresponds to the new field in the same spot of the list newFields. If you need to set a default value with a comma in it, you can use '^' as a comma. If the defaultValues list is longer or shorter than newFields list, then the function ignores the extra default values or uses the empty string for unspecified default values, respectively.

Output

Nothing.

Example

Adding fields

<$rsCreateResultSet("MyList", "field1,field2,field3")$><$rsAppendRowValues("MyList", "A,B,C,D,E,F")$><$rsAddFieldsWithDefaults("MyList", "field4,field5,field6")$>

In this basic example, we create a ResultSet named MyList, fill it with some values, then add three more fields to MyList, without setting default values. The resulting table will look like the following:

field1 field2 field3 field4 field5 field6
