Custom Auto-Search Dialog?

edited February 2008 in Server
Hello All, I have created custom auto search dialogs for a report builder
end-user desktop application. As an example, I have setup a combo box and
populate it with customer names so that the end user can select from the
list instead of having to know and type the customer #. I would like to
implement this same functionality in my RBWebServer App but I'm not sure if
it's possible or where to look for examples if it is.

Thanks All,
Brandne Johnson

    The custom parameters demo shows how to do this. Run the Server and WebTier
    described below. (The demo also shows how to define custom session and
    report level params in addition to the custom autosearch form).

    Tech Tips: RB Server and Custom Parameters

    The RBServer Custom Parameter demos show how to define custom session and
    report level parameters that can be used to implement security and other
    types of custom processing.

    The are three projects that work together. Each project includes a
    ReadMe.doc and commented code.

    1. RBServer\Demos\Servers\Custom Parameters
    2. RBServer\Demos\WebTier\Custom Parameters
    3. RBServer\Demos\Clients\Custom Parameters

    The demos include examples of how to...

    1. Define Custom Session parameters.

    A custom login form is displayed. Based upon the login, the catalog of
    reports available to the user is filtered.

    2. Define Custom Report parameters

    A custom parameter form is displayed. The parameters are used by the report.

    3. Custom AutoSearch form

    A custom autosearch form is displayed. The parameter values are used by the
    autosearch criteria.
