Filing

Using the Filing Service
The arguments to the
FileThis
method supply all the information necessary to file
a soup entry, including the item to file (the target), the category under which to file
it (the value to which you set the target's
labels
slot), and the store on which to
file it.
If the value of the
labelsChanged
parameter to the
FileThis
method is
true
,
your
FileThis
method must use the value of the
newLabels
parameter to
update the value of the target's
labels
slot. However, if the value of the
labelsChanged
parameter is
nil
, the value of the
newLabels
parameter is
undefined--don't use it!
Similarly, if the value of the
storesChanged
parameter is
true
, your
FileThis
method must move the target to the new store. However, if the value of
the
storesChanged
parameter is
nil
, the value of the
destStore
parameter
is undefined.
The following code example shows the implementation of a typical
FileThis
method. Remember to call
EntryChangeXmit
from this method so your changes
to filed entries are saved!
FileThis: // example code - your mileage may vary
func(target, labelsChanged, newLabels, storesChanged, destStore)
begin
if labelsChanged AND target.labels <> newLabels then
begin
target.labels := newLabels;
EntryChangeXmit(target, kAppSymbol);
end // labelsChanged
if storesChanged and (EntryStore(target) <> destStore) and
not destStore:IsReadOnly() then
begin
// move the entry to the new store & xmit change
// make sure you handle locked stores too
if EntryStore(target):IsReadOnly() then
EntryCopyXmit(target, destStore, kAppSymbol);
else
EntryMoveXmit(target, destStore, kAppSymbol);
end; //storesChanged
end; // FileThis
Implementing the NewFilingFilter Method
15
When the user changes the current filing filter in the folder tab view, the system
calls your application's
NewFilingFilter
method. You need to define this
method in your application's base view. Your
NewFilingFilter
method must
update the query that retrieves items matching the current filing category and
