Bookmarking allows users to save filter control selections and other run-time content customizations that they make in a page so that they can easily reapply them when they run the page again later. This is especially useful when there are many filter controls on a page that a user may want to apply each time they access it. Bookmarks are personal to each user and can easily be created and deleted as needed.

Using WebFOCUS Designer, you can create a single content item – either a chart or report – or you can create a page that contains multiple items. There are two different kinds of pages. These pages are similar in appearance and general functionality, but provide a slightly different set of options, particularly when it comes to filtering behavior. Show a finished page
Are you looking for ways to incorporate WebFOCUS content into your custom application? With this course, you will work through examples on how to embed WebFOCUS Portals, reports and charts, and ReportCaster schedules into your custom applications using RESTFul web services. The course is primarily delivered in HTML and jQuery, but the principles are the same for other development languages.
Learn how to:
When assembling pages from existing content in WebFOCUS Designer, two preset containers are available that allow you to provide access to content saved to your Repository. These are the Workbench template and the Explorer widget. In addition to running content, the Explorer widget allows users to create new content using the same options that are available on the WebFOCUS Home Page.
When you add content to a page, it is automatically placed in a container. To move and resize the content item, move and resize the container into which it was placed by dragging the container or its resizing handles. You can also configure and style a container by selecting it on the page and then using the options on the Settings and Format tabs of the Properties panel. Note that the options for a container are separate from those for the content item inside the container. To select the container, click the container toolbar, or select a container from the Outline tab of the sidebar.
You can instantly download a snapshot of your page as a PDF document or .png image using the Export to file menu on the page toolbar. This allows you and anyone running the page to quickly capture its current state, with filter selections applied, in a format that can be easily reused, distributed, added to PowerPoint presentations, and more.
You can use parameterized drilldowns to connect to a page in your repository. Whereas in InfoAssist you must use a URL to drill to the page, when you create charts and reports in WebFOCUS Designer, you can simply select the page that you want to drill to using a file picker. The value that you click or select in your content can be passed to the page as a parameter. The page opens with your selections already applied as filter values, creating a seamless transition between content items.
You can pass parameter values from a chart or report to a target page using a URL drilldown. The value that you click or select is passed to the page as part of its run-time URL. The page opens with your selections already applied as filter values, creating a seamless transition between content items.
