To jQuery or Not to Jquery

(ODD results is SAP ,EVEN is CS)

Recently a poster facing problems with how xECM and Livelink manages content posed this question.He basically wants some results excluded when a search is performed.The correct implementation of this is by permissions.The poster wants to use appearances and cheap gimmicks like that .I also do not really know a lot of advanced html so when I hear people rave about jQuery and its infinite possibilities I am  usually thinking wow I could never understand those.Note any self respecting programmer will be able to trace the weblingo of my implementation to a file in the livelink directory  Here’s the question posed by the poster in KB RE How to restrict Function Menu in search result?

Now a fair amount of warning as advertisers put in Advertisements .Professional do not attempt this at a live livelink installation. You need to really use htmlmap, overrideutils or customizations_RT before attempting this.But here’s the  jist of what I am doing

For some context I am considering every odd row of my results to be coming from SAP and evens to be “showable with the function menu”. So if we look at the source of the document of the  searchresults in a 9.7.1 livelink I see this the ‘x5’ is the dead giveaway in this case.Since I mess with oScript all the time I can see that count going x1,x3,x5,x7 etc…..

<A HREF=”javascript:(0)” ONCLICK=”javascript:setSectionName(”);showFunctionMenu2(‘nextURL=%2Flivelink%2Fllisapi%2Edll%3Ffunc%3Dsrch%2ESearchCache%26cacheId%3D1125829432’, 5, event, ”, ‘?func=SearchResultsFunctionMenu&amp;hitID=5&amp;searchCacheID=1125829432&amp;version=0&amp;dataID=62740&amp;HH=false&amp;subtype=264’ );setSectionName(”);return false”><IMG SRC=”/img/actions.gif” ID=”x5″ BORDER=”0″ ALT=”Functions” ></A>

Now that we have done our research we need to see if we have JQuery in livelink. In short of time and doing this not for money and interest only in this I googled and downloaded

jquery-1.8.2.min.js and then I found this file called resultlist2.html. It is my livelink on a VM and I have a snapshot thing so I am doing in place editing(Tsk Tsk Do Not Ever Do It)

Now I put where OT has a js file .My oscript tells me that that is the webnode support directory

<SCRIPT TYPE=”text/javascript” SRC=”`webNodeImgPrefix`browsecorermenu.js” LANGUAGE=”javascript”></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT TYPE=”text/javascript” SRC=”`webNodeImgPrefix`jquery-1.8.2.min.js” LANGUAGE=”javascript”></SCRIPT>

Now to see if everything works we need some tests

so from the web lots of excellent samples I put these together

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
$(“p”).click(function(){
$(this).hide();
});
});
</script>

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
$(“TR”).click(function()
{
$(“#x1”).hide();
$(“#x3”).hide();
$(“#x5”).hide();
$(“#x7”).hide();
}

);
});
</script>

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
$(“a”).click(function(){
$(this).hide();
});
});
</script>

This is like a recipe in a cookery show.I must have spent close to 3 hrs twiddling with what I am doing.Note I would have been able to do this in oscript much faster but that was not my intention.I wanted to learn Jquery so that is why this looks weird if there are a some oscripters going  “that appu he is really going down the edge….”

Now when I restart my livelink and conduct a search all my ODD results don’t have any function menu.Here’s when the page loads first

Full Results

Now when I click that is I have a event that says when the <TR> area is clicked that is when my event fires

What remains maybe do it for real when it is called for remove the hard code and put a real counter,maybe make it work without the <TR> click event….

I am sure the poster gets some kind of header variable like MYSAPSSO2 in livelink so some keying off that and implementing the business rules could be thought off

This is great Long Live JQuery….
