Create DSS GUI RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys,

    I am planning to build a GUI to interact with my services. One way would be to use Windows forms (like in simple dashboard), the other way to use html/http. I especially want to create messages by clicking a button (e.g. like in the MSRS control panel). Where do I find further information about this topic? Unfortunately, I am running short in time with my project and have to build up the GUI asap.

    Thanks a lot guys,
    tom

    Look at Service Tutorial 6 for information on using XSLT to display state information.:

    Also look at the information about using the MSRS Master Page:

    http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb648762.aspx

     

    Basically, if you understand web development, you can use JavaScript and a lot of HTML code to implement your interface. You will also need to implement the HttpGet and HttpPost operations.

     

    State information goes through a "transformation" process which is specified using XSLT. The output from the transform is HTML. This means that you can have as many HTML Forms and Buttons as you want. It's up to you how you process the data when a Form is submitted.

  • Thanks for your answer Trevor. I had a look at the tutorial, I understand how to retrieve information from the services and how the xslt transforms the data to gain the html representation. But what about the other way around? Is there any information about how I can send messages to a service via http/from a html website?
