Check Box & Images in single Column


Thanks in response.

<Alarms><Alarm AlarmId="1" Age="0:03 " AlarmName="AIRFLOW INCHES" AlarmType="Input Point" Assignment=" " CompanyID="000 " Esc="0 " Lapsed="974:49 " LoggedTime="2007-07-25 20:15:25.92" Nts="note" Pri="10 " SystemID="18500 " SystemName="TE5-Savvy31 " TimeOccurred="2007-07-25 16:12:00.0"/>
<Alarm AlarmId="2" Age="0:03 " AlarmName="HEAT 2/CLOSED" AlarmType="Output Point" Assignment="EAMadministrator " CompanyID="000 " Esc="0 " Lapsed="974:49 " LoggedTime="2007-07-25 20:15:25.937" Nts="note" Pri="10 " SystemID="18500 " SystemName="TE5-Savvy31" TimeOccurred="2007-07-25 16:12:00.0"/>

This is my sample xml file as a string i have in my jsp.

Now my question is......I want to display this data in AW grid component. In third column i want display one check box with name & values as AlarmId in my xml string.

This is my JSP code.

var ServerXML ='<%=xmlStr%>'; // Here actual xml string will come up
var table = new AW.XML.Table;
//Here i am setting my data into the grid.
table.setColumns(["@Esc", "@Pri", "@CompanyID", "@SystemID", "@SystemName","@AlarmName","@AlarmType","@TimeOccurred","@Age","@LoggedTime","@Lapsed","@Nts","@Assignment"]);

var columns = ["E", "P", "CC", "Sys #", "System Name","Alarm Name","Alarm Type","Occurred","Age","Logged","Lapsed","Nts","Assigned"];
//Can we write like this to display check box in my grid is it possible.

table.setColumns(["@Esc", "@Pri","<input type=checkbox name=@AlarmId value=@AlarmId onclick='javascript:findABC(this.value)'>" "@CompanyID", "@SystemID", "@SystemName","@AlarmName","@AlarmType","@TimeOccurred","@Age","@LoggedTime","@Lapsed","@Nts","@Assignment"]);

var columns = ["E", "P","s", "CC", "Sys #", "System Name","Alarm Name","Alarm Type","Occurred","Age","Logged","Lapsed","Nts","Assigned"];
var obj = new AW.UI.Grid;
obj.setCellTemplate(new AW.Templates.Image,11);
obj.setSelectorText(function(i){return this.getRowPosition(i)+1});
var str = new AW.Formats.String;
var num = new AW.Formats.Number;

If the checkbox values and images are calculated from data in other columns you can do the following -

1. add empty column for the checkbox (using "" Xpath)-

table.setColumns(["@Esc", "@Pri", "", "@CompanyID", "@SystemID" ...

2. add other data columns at the end (if necessary) -

table.setColumns([... , "@Ack", "@Status"]);

3. calculate values and images and assign them to the grid column

function checkboxValue(col, row){

    if (this.getCellData(14, row) == 1){ // @Ack column
        return true;
    else {
        return false;

function checkboxImage(col, row){

    if(this.getCellData(15, row) == "Resolved"){ //@Status column
        return "favorites"; //image name
    else {
        return "none";

obj.setCellValue(checkboxValue, 2);
obj.setCellImage(checkboxImage, 2);

4. assign checkbox template

obj.setCellTemplate(new AW.Templates.Checkbox, 2);

Hi Alex,

Thanks for your response its working fine for some what?

But the below method is not working fine, even the control is not going to this method.
function checkboxValue(col, row){
//Here my code is comes up
if (this.getCellData(14, row) == 1){ // @Ack column
return true;
else {
return false;

I have one more doubt.

What is the difference between new AW.UI.Checkbox & new AW.Templates.Checkbox

If we use new AW.UI.Checkbox i am not able to use checkboxes and images in the same column.

If we use new AW.Templates.Checkbox i am not able to check the check box based on my XML attribute values.
