Nota clasica.png There's a special case for date types. Data is stored in format yyyyMMddHHmmss, take care of it when you're using OpenKM API.

  • name: This value is used to access the value typed by the user. Required.
  • table: The table where the data is stored.
  • filterQuery: An Hibernate query to filter the data. Use {0} to place the user input. Required.

  • dialogTitle: The text which describes the title of the dialog. Required.
  • filterMinLen: The minimum chars in input to begin to filter results.

Example

Create database metadata definition

-- NORMAL
DELETE FROM OKM_DB_METADATA_TYPE WHERE DMT_TABLE='provincia';
INSERT INTO OKM_DB_METADATA_TYPE (DMT_TABLE, DMT_REAL_COLUMN, DMT_TYPE, DMT_VIRTUAL_COLUMN) VALUES ('provincia', 'col00', 'integer', 'pro_id');
INSERT INTO OKM_DB_METADATA_TYPE (DMT_TABLE, DMT_REAL_COLUMN, DMT_TYPE, DMT_VIRTUAL_COLUMN) VALUES ('provincia', 'col01', 'text', 'pro_nombre');
 
-- SOME DATABASES NEED SET DMT_ID, LIKE ORACLE 
DELETE FROM OKM_DB_METADATA_TYPE WHERE DMT_TABLE='provincia';
INSERT INTO OKM_DB_METADATA_TYPE (DMT_ID, DMT_TABLE, DMT_REAL_COLUMN, DMT_TYPE, DMT_VIRTUAL_COLUMN) VALUES (HIBERNATE_SEQUENCE.NEXTVAL, 'provincia', 'col00', 'integer', 'pro_id');
INSERT INTO OKM_DB_METADATA_TYPE (DMT_ID, DMT_TABLE, DMT_REAL_COLUMN, DMT_TYPE, DMT_VIRTUAL_COLUMN) VALUES (HIBERNATE_SEQUENCE.NEXTVAL, 'provincia', 'col01', 'text', 'pro_nombre');

Create database metadata values

-- NORMAL
DELETE FROM OKM_DB_METADATA_VALUE WHERE DMV_TABLE='provincia';
INSERT INTO OKM_DB_METADATA_VALUE (DMV_TABLE, DMV_COL00, DMV_COL01) VALUES ('provincia', '1', 'Araba');
INSERT INTO OKM_DB_METADATA_VALUE (DMV_TABLE, DMV_COL00, DMV_COL01) VALUES ('provincia', '2', 'Albacete');
 
-- SOME DATABASES NEED SET DMV_ID, LIKE ORACLE
DELETE FROM OKM_DB_METADATA_VALUE WHERE DMT_TABLE='provincia';
INSERT INTO OKM_DB_METADATA_VALUE (DMV_ID, DMV_TABLE, DMV_COL00, DMV_COL01) VALUES (HIBERNATE_SEQUENCE.NEXTVAL, 'provincia', '1', 'Araba');
INSERT INTO OKM_DB_METADATA_VALUE (DMV_ID, DMV_TABLE, DMV_COL00, DMV_COL01) VALUES (HIBERNATE_SEQUENCE.NEXTVAL, 'provincia', '2', 'Albacete');

Property group xml definition

<suggestbox label="Provincia" name="okp:provincia" width="200px"
   table="provincia" dialogTitle="Seleccionar Provincia" filterMinLen="3"
   filterQuery="select $pro_id, $pro_nombre from DatabaseMetadataValue dmv where dmv.table='provincia' and lower(dmv.$pro_nombre) like '%{0}%' order by dmv.$pro_nombre"
   valueQuery="select $pro_id, $pro_nombre from DatabaseMetadataValue dmv where dmv.table='provincia' and dmv.$pro_id='{0}'" />

Checkbox

Best used to represent boolean data:

  • label: The text which describes the component. Required.
  • name: This value is used to access the value typed by the user. Required.

TextArea

Similar to Input but for bigger text:

  • label: The text which describes the component. Required.
  • name: This value is used to access the value typed by the user. Required.
  • value: Here you can specify a default value for this component.
  • width: The width of the component. Defaults to 300px.
  • height: The height of the component. Defaults to 100px.

Select

In this case, the value can be selected from a list of predefined one. Every select component can contain an arbitrary number of options bigger than one.

  • label: The text which describes the component. Required.
  • name: This value is used to access the value selected by the user. Required.
  • type: Actually can be only "simple". Simple means that only one option can be selected at a time. Defaults to "simple".
  • width: The width of the component. Defaults to browser default HTML select width.
  • height: The height of the component. Defaults to browser default HTML select height.

Since OpenKM 6.1 you have a couple of new properties to get the select option values from a database query. Lets see a sample use of these new values:

  • table: The metadata table used in this query.
  • optionsQuery: A metadata query used to obtain the select options.

These options were include in Workflow Forms since OpenKM Professional 6.2.10 and OpenKM Community 6.2.3, and defined in workflow-forms-2.4.dtd.

Since OpenKM 6.2.17 Professional there is a new property called suggestion. This can be set to a class which implements a way of getting Option suggestions. By default OpenKM provides a couple of implementations:

  • com.openkm.form.suggestion.DocumentContentContainsSuggestion: Get suggestions based on document content (use String.contains)
  • com.openkm.form.suggestion.DocumentContentTokenizerSuggestion: Get suggestions based on document content (Use StringTokenizer).
  • com.openkm.form.suggestion.DocumentTermsSuggestion: Get suggestions based on document term vectors.

These options was include in Property Group, and defined in property-groups-2.2.dtd.

Property Group xml definition. If the document content where the Property Group is assigned match a "provincia", then is offered as suggestion:

 <select label="Provincia" name="okp:provincia" type="simple" 
      	table="provincia" suggestion="com.openkm.form.suggestion.DocumentContentTokenizerSuggestion"
