Webdev and PagePosition

Startbeitrag von Michael Drechsel am 31.10.2011 17:03


I have a Page which is longer as my screen. Even I refresh a table or a looper with a server procedure (not ajax) the page is redraw and scolls at the beginning.

I played with "pageposition", but its a browser-code. I need a function to save the current position and jump to this position after a server procedure.

how can I do that ??


Look at TablePosition().

However it doesn't work in ajax tables, although it is supposed to. PCS have confirmed this is a bug. Its a disgrace.

Strangely TablePosition() is working when the AWP mode is used. This might be a workaround for you.

Hi Michael,

it doesn´t work. A simple "goto control" or "scoll to control" must be a solution, but there is nothing ...

Hi Michael,

Haven't tried this, but you could define two global variables:
sControlName is string
nRow is int
Before you execute the server procedure you set the variables to the looper name and its row number. Then put in the onLoad code of the page:
if sControlName"" then 
HTH, regards,

Hie Piet,

nice idea. I check it out.

Hi Piet,

it works, but unfortunatly it seems that "pageposition" can´t use variables :-(

If I write the "real" Controlname into "pageposition" it works, but with the variable "sControlname" nothing happens ...

It´s a bug or feature ????

But with some workarounds it could be a solution ...

I used Statics wich must be defined as anchor ....

Hi Michael,

Perhaps with indirection? {sControlName,indControl}

Hi Piet,

in BrowserCode indirection is not allowed.

Hi All

This is an old thread - but I have a similar issue now (WebDev 19).

The server code refreshes the page position and it is not obvious that they need to scroll down to get the results.

As in the original post - I need something to simulate PagePosition - or something to scroll the page down.

It doesn't seem like a difficult thing to do, but apparently it is. Does anyone have any further suggestions on how to get a screen to scroll down after a return from a server process (no loopers or tables here).

Ah! Resolved this (for my purposes)

For information only - my process did not have Ajax enabled - therefor I did not see the Return from Ajax event. This handles the PagePosition (browser) code.

All good :)
