  • customSelectExpression not applied in SimpleType

    Hi Isomorphic,

    please see this testcase:


    <SimpleType name="mytype" inheritsFrom="text" customSelectExpression="'in SimpleType'">
     <field customSelectExpression="'in field Tag'" />
     <customSelectExpression>'as cSE Tag'</customSelectExpression>


    <!DOCTYPE html>
        <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
        <!--                                           -->
        <!-- Any title is fine                         -->
        <!--                                           -->
        <!-- IMPORTANT : You must set the variable isomorphicDir to [MODULE_NAME]/sc/ so that the SmartGWT resource are

        <script> var isomorphicDir = "builtinds/sc/"; </script>

        <!-- If you add any GWT meta tags, they must   -->

        <!--                                           -->

        <!-- OPTIONAL: include this if you want history support -->
        <iframe src="javascript:''" id="__gwt_historyFrame" tabIndex='-1' style="position:absolute;width:0;height:0;border:0"></iframe>

            <field name="commonName"      title="Animal"             type="mytype" />
            <field name="scientificName"  title="Scientific Name"    type="text"  primaryKey="true"  required="true"/>
            <field name="lifeSpan"        title="Life Span"          type="integer"/>
            <field name="status"          title="Endangered Status"  type="text">
                    <value>Not Endangered</value>
                    <value>Not currently listed</value>
                    <value>May become threatened</value>
            <field name="diet"            title="Diet"               type="text"/>
            <field name="information"     title="Interesting Facts"  type="text"  length="1000"/>
            <field name="picture"         title="Picture"            type="image" detail="true"

    (I used the normal (not modified) class

    Expected Behaviour:
    One of the customSelectExpression(s) in SimpleType "mytype" gets applied -> "as cSE Tag" or "in SimpleType" gets shown in column "commonName"

    Real behaviour:
    Neither of the customSelectExpression(s) gets applied, values are shown as in the database.

    (I also testes two cases with only one cSE)

    Its importent for us, that the customSelectExpression in SimpleType "mytype" gets applied. Please take a look at it, and let me know if there is something wrong with this usage or if this is a bug.

    SmartClient Version: v12.0p_2019-04-11/PowerEdition Deployment (built 2019-04-11)

    Thanks in advance,
    Kind Regards

    There is no simpleType.customSelectExpression in the docs, so this isn't a bug. It sounds like this is a feature you would liked added, so please consider Feature Sponsorship.

    Note also that if you wanted a particular customSelectExpression to be applied wherever a certain simpleType is used, you could achieve that yourself with a DynamicDSGenerator (see QuickStart Guide).

      Ok, thanks for the quick answer. Could You state out, what actually is supported in simpleType then? That would be very helpful.

      Thanks in Advance,
      Kink Regards

        Sorry, we don't understand the question.

        What is documented is what is supported, as with all other classes.

        Could you clarify what you're asking?
