Hi formspider team,

api_application.getfocusedcomponent is a feature I was eagerly looking for in 1.3.0. Though the change log says that it is fixed it is still not working. I am getting the following result. The command given in a key event is:


My grid panel name is: TEST_GRID the result displayed is: TEST_GRID

My test script is as under:

    <grid dataSource="TEST_GRID" >
      <column nameheaderLabel="Cost Center">
        <textField name="CP_SHID" tooltip="Cost Center" column="CP_SHID"/>

Hi George,

I guess you are expecting CP_SHID as the result. In 1.3.0, a new parameter named in_innerComponent_yn is added to the api_application.getfocusedcomponent API, having 'N' as default value. When the focus is in a component existing in a grid component; if the value of the in_innerComponent_yn parameter is equal to 'N', this API returns the name of the grid component, as in your case. However, if its value is equal to 'Y', it returns the name of the focused component inside of the grid. Therefore, you can use the API by setting 'Y' as in_innerComponent_yn parameter to retrieve the name of the focused component in the grid:


Hope this helps,
