SHOW SECTION_START woes

Post by Pomegranate »

Hello and good everyone,

I'm using SHOW SECTION_START to filter between styles on a custom query inside a form.

Here is the code

Code: Select all

<div class="course-wrapper">
<<IF UserModule.ValueTest = 'Yes' THEN SHOW SECTION_START>>
		<a href="#/" onclick="AwareApp.startProcess2('ModuleViewTrainee','UserModule',{ID},'new_tab')"><div class="course-name">{sc_Name}</div></a>
		<a href="#/" onclick="AwareApp.startProcess2('ModuleViewTrainee','UserModule',{ID},'new_tab')"><div class="course-image">{sc_Image}</div></a>
		<a href="#/" onclick="AwareApp.startProcess2('ModuleViewTrainee','UserModule',{ID},'new_tab')">
		<div class="course-content">
			<div class="course-description">НЭВТРЭХ</div>
		</div>
	</a>
<<SECTION_END>>
<<IF UserModule.ValueTest = 'No' THEN SHOW SECTION_START>>
		<div class="course-name">{sc_Name}</div>
		<div class="course-image2">{sc_Image}</div>
		<div class="course-content">
			<div class="course-description">{sc_EffectiveDate}</div>
		</div>
<<SECTION_END>>
</div>
I can't seem to make it do what I want, the results are always empty, nothing shows up,

Is there something wrong with the code, is it syntax error, it got me stumped, I would really appreciate it if you can have a look and tell me what I did wrong.

Thanks for your time :).

Actually, I went another way,

I added a class to the a links like so

Code: Select all

<a class="{ValueTest}" href="#/" onclick="AwareApp.startProcess2('LessonViewTrainee','UserLesson',{ID},'new_tab')"><div class="course-name">{sc_Name}</div></a>

And in CSS, I did this,

Code: Select all

a.No img {
	filter:grayscale(1);
}
a.No {
	pointer-events: none;
}
Without having to show different renderings of the same data, I just added classes and made the effective ones clickable and the uneffective ones unclickable and grayscaled.

Thanks for your time! :)

Just today I was fighting with <<IF ... SECTION SHOW_START>>
Just didn't seem to work right - spent an hour on a form trying to get the results I wanted.
Seems like the <<IF>> is evaluated when the form is drawn, so while its not what you were doing, it wouldn't react to changes on the form dynamically.

anyway, thanks for this tip.

Be mindful that when you move control to CSS you are moving security from the server to the client. Whilst it's unlikely that you are building a banking system, savvy users may be able to frig your security settings by using the browser console. It's a balance, if you are building a system for a youth club then CSS is appropriate, if you're building an audited system then this is a riskier approach.
