JSL: Index and Navigate through All Tables Open in JMP
Jun 28, 2017 11:43 AM(3723 views)
I'm building a JMP App and I need to be able to return the number of tables I have open as well as navigate through multiple tables so the user can select a table to work with. Say you have 3 tables open and you build a spin arrow in the app builder (up/down arrows). If you click up, the next table up becomes the Current Data Table, and similary for clicking down, the table down becomes the Current Data Table.
Index 1 - Table A
Index 2 - Table B
Index 3 - Table C
Index 2 - Table B.
i am using this code to index tables and find out how many tables are open. The error I'm receiving is that Data Table () cannot understand anything that is not a constant integer. Any time I put a variable (for incrementing purposes) I receive back that Data Table cannot identify the inside of the parentheses.
The way the while statement works is if Data Table (1) can reference Table A/B/C, it will return "Table A/B/C", and when I call Type() on it, it returns "Table". So, by the time the while loop hits Data Table(4), theres no table to return a reference to, meaning there will be no type "Table" ending the while loop.
