Now that you have created a way for users to submit requests, you are ready to create the confirmation page. This page will display the count of requests made by the current user, followed by a grid view of requests submitted by all users, similar to the following. You can sort and filter the grid to see specific subsets of requests, such as your own.

After you have submitted one or more "requests" the tallies will change and your new requests will be shown.

See a live example.

Create the Confirmation Page

  • Return to your "Reagent Request Tutorial" folder if you navigated away.
  • Click the (triangle) menu on Reagent Request Form and select New.
  • Name: "confirmation" (this page name is already embedded in the code for the request page, and is case sensitive).
  • Title: "Reagent Request Confirmation".
  • Confirm that the Source tab is selected.
  • Copy and paste the contents of the code section below into the source panel.
  • Click Save & Close.
  • You will see a grid displayed showing the sample requests from our list archive. If you already tried submitting one before creating this page, you would have seen an error that the confirmation page didn't exist, but you will see the request listed here.
  • Click Reagent Request Form in the Pages web part to return to the first wiki you created and submit some sample requests to add data to the table.

Notes on the JavaScript Source

LABKEY.Query.executeSql is used to calculate total reagent requests and total quantities of reagents for the current user and for all users. These totals are output to text on the page to provide the user with some idea of the length of the queue for reagents.

Note: The length property (e.g., data.rows.length) is used to calculate the number of rows in the data table returned by LABKEY.Query.executeSql. It is used instead of the rowCount property because rowCount returns only the number of rows that appear in one page of a long dataset, not the total number of rows on all pages.


<p>Thank you for your request. It has been added to the request queue and will be filled promptly.</p> <div id="totalRequests"></div> <div id="allRequestsDiv"></div> <div id="queryDiv1"></div>
