Deselect Tree Entries

Tag: Unselect

The Unselect action, along with the applicable SetParam options, lets you automate deselecting some or all documents and design elements within scanEZ's selection tree.

Detailed Description

To automate selections in scanEZ's Selection Tree, use the Unselect action along with a combination of Category and Type attributes.

This action will not automatically expand a category. A category must already be expanded from a previous action in the script in order to be deselected. This will deselect checkbox selections.

For all Category values except Designs, the Type value is equal to the displayed title in the selection tree.

The following are compatible Type values when using the 'Designs' Category:

  • Outlines
  • Framesets
  • Pages
  • Forms
  • Views
  • Folders
  • Navigators
  • Agents
  • Images
  • Applets
  • Web Services Providers
  • Web Services Consumers
  • Java
  • Jars
  • Subforms
  • Shared Fields
  • Script Libraries
  • Others
  • Agent Data
  • Data Connections
  • DB2 Access Views
  • Style Sheets
  • Shared Columns
  • Shared Actions
  • Files
  • Wiring Properties
  • Composite Applications
  • Components
  • iNotes
  • XPages
  • Custom Controls
  • Themes
  • Server JavaScript Libraries
  • Eclipse Files

The Unselect action can be used for deselecting entries within trees and grids; the selection mechanics, attributes and compatible values, and the attributes and SetParam options are different depending on what you need to select.

For selections in grids, selection trees in mono-database products or server/database trees, please look at these pages:
