I'm implementing a GUI Extension for Audience Manager - initial steps have gone well, got my config right, script loaded etc.

I'm looking for the event I can subscribe to when the "Details" tab is clicked.

$evt.addEventHandler($display, "????", onSelectTabControl);

function onSelectTabControl () {          
}

I want to manipulate some extended details fields so need to make sure this tab is selected before I start grab fields.

UPDATE

Playing through Chrome's console when I open a Contact I can get the tab strip through:

var tabs = $display.getView().properties.controls.TabControl;

And can then detect a selection with:

tabs.addEventListener("select", function(t) { console.log(t); });

When I add these to my inserted script though I start seeing an error????

Uncaught Error: Value should be a function.

UPDATE 2

Got this working with the following code and following Albert's article as Dave mentions below. I hadn't realised that the start event was still called when the Contact View was displayed:

$evt.addEventHandler($display, "start", onDisplayStarted);

function onDisplayStarted() {
    console.log("OnDisplayStarted called");
    $evt.removeEventHandler($display, "start", onDisplayStarted);

    var tabs = $display.getView().properties.controls.TabControl;
    if(tabs!==undefined){
        tabs.addEventListener("select", function(t) { 
            console.log(t); 

            if(t.data.element.id == "DetailsTab") {
                console.log("DetailsTab!");

                // Set and fields to disabled
                $j(t.data.element).find(":input").attr('disabled','disabled');
                // Turn off any date buttons
                $j(t.data.element).find("div.button").hide();
            }
        });
    };
}

What I could do with now is a way to check which Address Book a contact is in from the Contact View - something I'm not sure is possible but a topic for a different question!

  • Hi Neil, I've been working on a GUI extension for a different purpose. When I add the above code to my _isAvailable method, and am on a page with tabs it works fine (I don't have Audience Manager on my dev box, so can't test there) Could you share the code you are adding the above to? – Dave Houlker Jun 3 '13 at 14:11
  • Cheers Dave - is you GUI extension a command or button? I just want a script to run when the Detail tab is activated in the ContactView. Didnt think I needed all the isEnabled, isAvailable stuff. – Neil Jun 4 '13 at 12:05
  • It was on a command, as thats what i had open at the time! I just wanted to check the JS worked ok. You're right, you shouldn't need _isEnabled etc for what you are doing. I've adapted a blog post by Albert Romkes in an answer below, let me know if that works! – Dave Houlker Jun 4 '13 at 15:14

Using Albert's post here, i've managed to get an example working.

To an existing Gui Extension I added the config below:

<cfg:group name="GroupName">
    <cfg:domainmodel name="Name">
        <cfg:fileset>
            <cfg:file type="script" id="Id">/client/js-test.js</cfg:file>
        </cfg:fileset>
        <cfg:services />
    </cfg:domainmodel>
</cfg:group>

Then the JS file is just:

$evt.addEventHandler($display, "start", onDisplayStarted);

function onDisplayStarted() {
    console.log("OnDisplayStarted called");
    $evt.removeEventHandler($display, "start", onDisplayStarted);

    var tabs = $display.getView().properties.controls.TabControl;
    if(tabs!==undefined){
        tabs.addEventListener("select", function(t) { console.log(t); });
    };
}

Obviously you'll need to adapt this for your needs, but it should get you started.

  • Thanks Dave - I had started with Alberts article myself, but if you check the comments, Boris mentions there'a a better way to target your script for a specific view - which is what I did. Let me try a quick double check that I didn't cock something obvious up ..... – Neil Jun 4 '13 at 18:22
  • Thanks Neil - I hadn't seen that, seems like a better solution. Post your code when you get it working! – Dave Houlker Jun 4 '13 at 20:27
