Here’s a question I posed for discussion on COGNOISE:
Since I’m so new to Cognos, I haven’t experienced an upgrade where everything breaks because IBM decides to change how they render prompts or something.
As a matter of fact, I have no way of knowing if any of the jQuery stuff I’ve been writing will translate to 10, because frankly, we use none of it at my job. I think I have a pretty solid strategy, though.
This code for removing an option is one line and pretty much self-explanatory. Go to the ID, and find the first option in that prompt. It’s hard to see a scenario where this would change drastically during an upgrade.
So that’s what I’m asking! There’s a sense of fear when it comes to using JS with Cognos – it would be naive to say it’s not a problem, but I think maybe developers are overcomplicating the JS and introducing developer tie-in with their code. What are you seeing?
