How To Apply ICase

How To Apply ICase


How can I use I case for some conditions of SrCode in grid, like

CODE -->

With This.parent.parent.ContSrDisp.Grid1
   .Width  = 1146
   .Height = 145
   .Top    = 84
   .Left   = 6 && Adjust Grid position
   .ColumnCount  = 10
   .HeaderHeight = 24
   .ReadOnly = .T.
   .FontName = "Tahoma"
   .RecordSource = "SrDisp"
   .RecordSourceType = 1
   .RowHeight = 24
   .DeleteMark = .F.
   *.setall("dynamicbackcolor", "IIF(RECNO()%2 = 0,RGB(219,125,27), RGB(255,255,255))", "Column")
    .setall("Dynamicbackcolor"=ICASE(SrCode='G30',RGB(255,0,0),SrCode='G10',RGB(0,64,64),SrCode='G23',RGB(255,255,255),RGB(192,192,192)), "Column")
   .Visible = .T.  && Grid control visible
   .ScrollBars = 2
   .column1.header1.Caption = 'ItemCode'

RE: How To Apply ICase

Dynamicxxx must be enclosed in parentheses.

.setall("Dynamicbackcolor"="ICASE(SrCode='G30',RGB(255,0,0),SrCode='G10',RGB(0,64,64),SrCode='G23',RGB(255,255,255),RGB(192,192,192))", "Column")

RE: How To Apply ICase

No and no.

Common, take a close look at your previous code with IIF:


.setall("dynamicbackcolor","IIF(RECNO()%2 = 0,RGB(219,125,27), RGB(255,255,255))", "Column")
.setall("dynamicbackcolor"=ICASE(SrCode='G30',RGB(255,0,0),SrCode='G10',RGB(0,64,64),SrCode='G23',RGB(255,255,255),RGB(192,192,192)), "Column") 

An assignment = is totally wrong here, you separate the property name you want to set and the value you want to set with comma, not with the assignment operator. The setall function does the assignment, you don't do that within a parameter you pass in.

And the ICASE expression you want to set has to be put in string delimiters. Is it so hard to just do as before, just replacing the IIF with an ICASE?

Bye, Olaf.

RE: How To Apply ICase

Thanks for the reply,

I am facing an error as shown in image.


RE: How To Apply ICase

I want to apply the condition as shown in image.



RE: How To Apply ICase

Of course this causes an error, it is wrong syntax. I marked the wrong places with red and the correct ones in green.

Bye, Olaf.

RE: How To Apply ICase

I was too quick with my answer. Replace the = in my answer with a comma.

.setall("Dynamicbackcolor","ICASE(SrCode='G30',RGB(255,0,0),SrCode='G10',RGB(0,64,64),SrCode='G23',RGB(255,255,255),RGB(192,192,192))", "Column") 

RE: How To Apply ICase

Thanks Mr.Olaf/tbleken,

It is working perfectly.
I want to apply the same in report also.
Where should I apply this syntax in report?

Please guide


RE: How To Apply ICase

A small improvement:

Wrap your ICASE() in a function, and call that function from your SetAll().

So, write a function named, say, GenColor:

CODE -->


RETURN ICASE(tcSrCode='G30',RGB(255,0,0),tcSrCode='G10',RGB(0,64,64), ;

Then, instead of writing the ICASE() in your SetAll, just call the function:

CODE -->

.SetAll("DynamicBackColor", "GenColor(SrCode)") 

This doesn't change the behaviour, nor is it any better for performance. But it does simplify the code and make it easier to read. It also allows you to call the same logic from different places, and makes it easier to change the colours should the need arise.

RE: How To Apply ICase

Thanks Mr.Mike, a very useful function.

I will apply it in grid/forms, can I have the same for report?
