Dropdown Checkbox Prompt

    Hi,

    Is there a way to accomplish a drop down checkbox prompt to save some real estate in the report. I have all the prompts on top of the report page.

    The free version of CogBox comes with a dropdown prompt. When you set multiple:true, it becomes a dropdown checkbox prompt.

    Hi Paul, I can't install Cogbox free. 
    I've added to the extension panel, but I don't see it on the application bar. 
    Any suggestion?
    Thanks in advance

    Hi Vincenzo,

    Do you mean you've uploaded the extension but you're not seeing it? What version of Cognos, and what browser are you using?

    I know in one of the 11.1.7 versions there was a weird issue with jQuery. I've had to make a separate branch specifically for that. Can you try the attached version? It's a beta of the latest version that should hopefully be officially released soon.

    If this is preventing Cognos from opening, you can easily remove the extension by adding &factoryMode=true to the end of the URL

    Example:
    http://<SERVER>/ibmcognos/bi/?perspective=content&tab=teamContent&folder=i99AB393FCB4847D599F5CD0B0D9BF6C7&factoryMode=true

    or
    http://<SERVER>/ibmcognos/bi/?factoryMode=true


    This loads cognos without any extensions, so if one is breaking it's easy to remove.

    Can you open the developer toolbar and paste a screenshot of the console? I'm really confused why it's failing, it's working great on my laptop. I am testing on 11.2, so  I'm trying to turn on my old 11.1 server.

    I remove it using factoryMode. 
    I don't know how to open the developer toolbar.
    this is the screen after the logon step:

    To open the developer toolbar you can press F12, or Ctrl-Shift-I


    I just tried this on my 11.1.7 environment and it was working great.

    This is very strange, I'm not seeing any indications why it would be failing. Can we connect sometime next week? I'm one hour ahead of Italy, so would Monday morning work? 

    You can send me a message through the website https://pmsquare.com/contact-us and we'll arrange the time and GoToMeeting then.

    I have removed the extension but randomly the problem keeps showing up during the navigation.
    Now we are trying to fix the environment and later we can try to install the component.
    I keep you informed
    Thanks

    This definitely shouldn't be causing any problems after the extension is removed. Absolutely nothing is changed on the server when installing CogBox. Removing the extension also removes the spec.json, so the JS files won't even be called. My offer to connect is still open. I'm available morning CET.
