BIP Modes

I have to admit we missed documenting a new piece of functionality in the 10.1.3.3 release that I also have to admit that I only found out about yesterday ... thats rapid development for you.



If you want to integrate BIP with another application I have documented how to call BIP via a URL but in 10.1.3.3 we added another switch. In prior releases you could call a report via the URL but the complete UI would render. With 10.1.3.3 the _xmode switch was added, this allows you to control what gets rendered via the url.



To use the switch just add it to the URL for example:

http://127.0.0.1:8888/xmlpserver/HRM/Employee+Salary/Employee+Salary.xdo?_xmode=X



where X is the mode number. The modes are:



0 - the complete BIP UI





1 - BIP UI showing template and output format drop boxes, the View and Export button



>



2 - BIP UI showing all in mode 1 plus any parameters





Useful stuff ... enjoy!
