Getting the currently applied profiling configuration programatically for use in Author Actions

Post by Bruno.Ballarin » Fri Dec 14, 2018 11:19 am

Hi,

when executing some Dita custom Author actions on a currently opened dita topic, is there a way to retrieve programmatically the profiling scheme that is currently applied on the opened Dita topic?

The rationale:

When selecting a pool of elements with an xpath to perform a custom operation, it seems that all the selected elements are affected by the operation, even the ones that are excluded under the currently applied profiling scheme.
For instance lets assume I am selecting with an Xpath all the rows in a table in order to apply a custom action. In the example below, 3 rows are selected, 2 of them with profiling attribute "GENERIC_A" and 1 with profiling attribute "GENERIC_B":

Code: Select all


                    <row  otherprops="GENERIC_A">
<entry >cell_content</entry>
<entry >cell_content</entry>
</row>
<row otherprops="GENERIC_A">
<entry >cell_content</entry>
<entry >cell_content</entry>
</row>
<row otherprops="GENERIC_B">
<entry >cell_content</entry>
<entry >cell_content</entry>
</row>
Now lets assume I am applying a profiling scheme on this topic with the following ditaval:

Code: Select all


    <prop att="otherprops" val="GENERIC_A" action="include"/>
<prop att="otherprops" val="GENERIC_B" action="exclude""/>
It results in having the first 2 rows rendered and the 3rd row hidden.

Now if I execute a custom operation on all selected rows, the action affects all 3 rows even if the 3rd row is hidden under the current profiling scheme.

If I would like to only affect the visible rows, I could statically select only the rows with otherprops="GENERIC_A">.

But what if I would like my custom operation to automatically detect the currently applied profiling scheme?
  • Is there a way to retrieve programmatically the "include" or "exclude" profiling configuration applied on an otherprops attribute for the currently opened topic?
  • If not, is there a way to programmatically retrieve the profiling from the ditaval if both the ditaval and the topic are associated in the same map?

Hi Bruno,

Maybe you could try to use something like this:

authorAccess.getEditorAccess().getStyles(node).isFilteredOut()

on each node that you want to process.

Perfect, thank you.

Code: Select all


  InRow = authorAccess.getDocumentController().findNodesByXPath("/topic/abstract/table/tgroup/tbody/row", true, true, true);
for(i = 0; i < InRow.length; i++){
if (!authorAccess.getEditorAccess().getStyles(InRow[i]).isFilteredOut()) {
// my processing here (applied to only the rows that are not excluded by my profiling configuration)
}
}
