Select after reload ??
afortaleza - 9/12/2003 at 04:51 PM

I have a tree that is the mirror of my database driven filesystem.
I'm following the steps:

1) Add a new leaf to the database.
2) Reload the page where the TM is
3) Select the new leaf (by ID) created

I do:
...location.reload()
...my_tree.select(<%=newID%>)

The problem is that the reload() takes some time to generate the tree and while being generated it executes the my_tree.select(), therefore it never can find the New Created Leaf because it's still being processed.

My question is, is there any way to select a leaf only after the process of buiding a tree is complete ? My approach now (to have more time to process) is to show to the user a window.alert() message, but it relies completly on the computer the user is using, if it's a slow enough PC my approach will fail.

I saw the thread about this but this thread didn't help me because I'm selecting by ID, and I couldn't see any solution for my problem in that thread.

I appreciate your help, thank you

You can use afterInit handler function to call your custom function after the process of buiding a tree is complete .
