gReport.search in APEX 5

yes, gReport was undocumented, but it was sooo handy when you wanted to refresh your interactive report from within javascript.

Just google for it and you will find dozens of examples using gReport.search(‘SEARCH’);

And then you upgraded to APEX 5

Because now we can have multiple IR’s on one page and the team made the IR a jquery widget, gReturn┬áno longer exists.

It’s a widget, so this has worked for me:

 

$('#your_static_id_of_the_report_ir').data('apex-interactiveReport')._search();

So If your static Id is “batchRuns” it becomes:

  $('#batchRuns_ir').data('apex-interactiveReport')._search();

And of course, it’s not documented, you’re not supposed to use the private method, but until the APEX team creates a public method to refresh my IR given the static Id of the region, I will be using this.

Until the next upgrade…
