Introduction

Do You Know?

Bean Shell Form Binder works as Load and Store Binder too.

Bean Shell Options Binder enables one to populate a Form element's options based on their own requirements/sources.

Bean Shell Form Binder Properties

Configure Bean Shell Form Binder

NameDescriptionScreen (Click to view)
ScriptA script in Java. See Bean Shell Programming Guide > Form Options Binder for example.



Use AJAX for cascade options?

When checked, this allows these fields to dynamically load available options based on the other field value (grouping column) when dealing with a tremendous amount of selections. Read more at Ajax Cascading Drop-Down List.

Only available when used as an Options Binder. An array "values" is passed to the script automatically. See Bean Shell Programming Guide > Form Ajax Options Binder for example.

Form Options Caching

NameDescriptionScreen (Click to view)
Sync Cache Interval

How often to activate cache synchronization (in seconds).

For example, when set to 180 seconds, background synchronization in the server will take place every 180 seconds to refresh with the new/latest data.

Pause sync after idle

How long to wait to pause synchronization after idle.

Tip

For example, this may be used in conjunction with User Option Binder to return all the users into a dropdown selection. If the users' records are large (in the ten of thousands), it is recommended to set the "Pause sync after idle" to a larger value and the sync will continue to update the cache in the background. If the dropdown selections are unlikely to change in a very short interval, it is recommended to set the "Sync Cache Interval" to a larger value too so that the server does not perform a new cache again in a short span of time.
