Step 1. Create a new WAM

WAM070 - Hiding Techniques

1.  Create a new WAM:

     Name:  iiiHideTech

     Description: Hiding Techniques

     Layout Weblet: iiilay01

2.  In this step, you will add the RDMLX code to demonstrate different hiding techniques.

     Use the DEFINE command to define the following work fields.

Field

Type

Length

Default Value

CLASSHIDE

*char

10

*blanks

HIDEIF

*char

10

*blanks

XSLIF

*char

10

*blanks

 

3.  Create a WebRoutine named HideMain with a description of 'Hiding Techniques'.

WebRoutine Name(HideMain) Desc('Hiding Techniques')
Endroutine
 

4.  Add a WEB_MAP for *both. Include the fields you have just created as well as STDRENTRY. Define all as hidden fields as follows:

Web_Map For(*BOTH) Fields((#CLASSHIDE *HIDDEN) (#HIDEIF *HIDDEN) (#XSLIF *HIDDEN) (#STDRENTRY *HIDDEN))
 

5.  Add a CASE loop based on STDRENTRY for three different values A, B and C.

     Note: Classes are case sensitive (#CLASSHIDE := 'hidden'). 'hidden' must be lower case.

     Your code should look like the following:

Case Of_Field(#STDRENTRY)
When Value_Is(= A)
If Cond(#CLASSHIDE = *BLANKS)
#CLASSHIDE := 'hidden'
Else
#CLASSHIDE := *BLANKS
Endif
When Value_Is(= B)
If Cond(#HIDEIF = *BLANKS)
#HIDEIF := 'HIDE'
Else
#HIDEIF := *BLANKS
Endif
When Value_Is(= C)
If Cond(#XSLIF = *BLANKS)
#XSLIF := 'HIDE'
Else
#XSLIF := *BLANKS
Endif
Endcase
 

     The complete WAM source code can be found in WAM 070. Appendix

6.  Compile your WAM
