Flash Drawing Control

Thematically highlight a Flash drawing

Technologies > User Interface Add-Ins > Flash Drawing Views > Thematically Highlight Drawing 

Note: With the release of ARCHIBUS V.23.2, all ARCHIBUS views were converted to use the HTML drawing control instead of the Flash drawing control. If you have previously created views that use the Flash drawing control, the view's drawings will still work.

For new views that you create, ARCHIBUS, Inc. recommends using the HTML control, as the Flash control is slated for desupport in future versions of ARCHIBUS. For information on converting existing views with Flash drawings to HTML format, see Convert views with the Flash drawing control to the HTML drawing control.

This example thematically highlights rooms according to department.

In the highlight data source, the legend key is assigned the attribute legendKey="true". Here the room table has been joined with the department table to access the highlight color palette stored in the department's hpattern_acad field:

<dataSource id="reportInPanel_highlightDepartmentsDs" type="DrawingControlHighlight">
    <table name="rm" role="main"/>
    <table name="dp" role="standard"/>
    <field table="rm" name = "bl_id"/>
    <field table="rm" name = "fl_id"/>
    <field table="rm" name = "rm_id"/>
    <field table="dp" name="name" legendKey="true"/>
    <field table="dp" name="hpattern_acad"/>

In the drawing panel definition, by setting thematicHighlightStyle to predefined (the default value), assets are highlighted thematically according to the highlight data source's hpattern_acad field:

<panel type="drawing" id="reportInPanel_cadPanel" layoutRegion="row1col2"
    <title translatable="true">[]</title>

If no predefined color values exist, colors are chosen automatically on the fly. The following highlight data source does not have a predefined color palette. The room restriction highlights those rooms which are vacant (rm.em_count=0):

<dataSource id="highlightVacantRoomsDs" type="DrawingControlHighlight">
    <table name="rm" role="main"/>
    <field table="rm" name = "rm_id"/>
    <field table="rm" name = "count_em" legendKey="true"/>
    <restriction type="parsed">
        <clause relop="AND" op="=" value="0" name="count_em" table="rm"/>

These and other commonly-used highlight data sources can be found in ab-datasource-highlights.axvw and incorporated into the AXVW by including a view panel:

<panel type="view" id="highlightStylesView" file="ab-datasource-highlights.axvw"/>
