November FOCUS® Friday

Drilldowns from WebFOCUS to Maintain; Hidden Gems; Dialogue Manager Flow Control

Nov 17

  • 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM EST


While the days are starting to grow shorter, FOCUS® Friday's still offer you an exceptional value for the time that you spend with us. And we enjoy seeing you each month! For the month of Thanksgiving we offer an exploration of drilldown into Maintain, a review of the navigation and flow control possibilities with Dialogue Manager and the return of Hidden Gems; with some new and some classic functionality you really need to know about. 

Drilldown from WebFOCUS Report into Maintain

Create a quick and easy way to edit your data on the fly. We will create a report, an update form, and the code to perform one from the other.

Dialogue Manager Flow and Parameters 

Dialogue Manager is the internal control language that FOCUS/WebFOCUS uses to run focexecs, stack FOCUS code, and navigate complex FOCUS applications. This month we will dig into how to use it to control the flow of your code to minimize code and provide the maximum functionality in the smallest space. 

Hidden Gems 

Hidden Gems has come back and this time we will look at some of the new language based hidden gems that are available to you in the latest versions of the FOCUS and WebFOCUS products. And there will be a few classic hidden gems that still offer great utility. 


That’s what we have planned for Friday, November 17, 2023 and we want you to join us!
