Step 2. Create New Functions  

In this step, you will create two new functions with the code you have designed from the previous step.

1.  Create a new LANSA process named iiiPROC03 WEBEVENT Functions, where iii are your initials. (If the process already exists, select a different set of characters for iii.)

2.   Enable your iiiPROC03 process for web. If you need to know how, refer to Web Enabling a LANSA Process.

3.  Working with your iiiPROC03 process, create a new function named iiiFN5 Request Department for Search. You will manually enter the code for the function.

       The RDML code in the function might appear something like this:

FUNCTION  OPTIONS(*DIRECT *WEBEVENT)
CHANGE    FIELD(#DEPTMENT) TO(*DEFAULT)
REQUEST   FIELDS(#DEPTMENT) DESIGN(*DOWN) IDENTIFY(*DESC) MENU_KEY(*NO) EXIT_KEY(*NO) USER_KEYS((01 SEARCH))

 

  

4.  Working with your iiiPROC03 process, create a new function named iiiFN6 Display Department/Section. You will manually enter the code for the function. (TIP: You could start this new function by copying code from your iiiFN0 function.)

     The RDML code in the function might appear something like this:

FUNCTION   OPTIONS(*DIRECT *WEBEVENT)
GROUP_BY   NAME(#HEADER) FIELDS(#DEPTMENT #DEPTDESC)
DEF_LIST   NAME(#iiiLIST) FIELDS((#LISTDUMMY *HIDDEN) #SECTION #SECDESC #SECPHBUS)
CLR_LIST   NAMED(#iiiLIST)
**********  COMMENT(Fetch file DEPTAB details)
FETCH      FIELDS(#HEADER) FROM_FILE(DEPTAB) WITH_KEY(#DEPTMENT) NOT_FOUND(R10) ISSUE_MSG(*YES)
**********  COMMENT(Select the SECTAB file details)
SELECT     FIELDS(#iiiLIST) FROM_FILE(SECTAB) WITH_KEY(#DEPTMENT)
ADD_ENTRY  TO_LIST(#iiiLIST)
ENDSELECT 
**********  COMMENT(Display results to the user)
R10: DISPLAY  FIELDS(#HEADER) DESIGN(*DOWN) IDENTIFY(*DESC) BROWSELIST(#iiiLIST) MENU_KEY(*NO) EXIT_KEY(*NO) USER_KEYS((01 RETURN))

 

  

5.  Compile the new functions.
