I was asked recently how I implemented the deleting of a row in my demo application, so I thought I would post the answer here in case anyone else was curious.
To accomplish the deletion of a row with a prompt to the user for confirmation you will need a hidden page item and a dynamic action.
On the page that has your report, add a hidden page item – mine is called P20_DELETE_ID. This item will be used by our dynamic action to hold the primary key of the row on which the user clicked the delete icon.
You need to add a link column to your report for the delete icon with the following attributes:
Link Target: URL
<span class="t-Icon fa fa-trash delete-note" aria-hidden="true"></span>
Link Attributes: data-id=#REMOVE#
Notice in the Link Text that I added a class called delete-note. This is the jQuery selector we will use to trigger our dynamic action. Also, notice the Link Attributes – the column referenced here, in my case #REMOVE#, should hold the primary key for the row. This value will be used to identify the row that needs to be deleted in your delete PL/SQL statement.
Next, we need a dynamic action that fires on click of our jQuery selector, .delete-note. This action will have four true actions:
True Action #1: Confirm
Text: Are you sure?
True Action #2: Set Value
Selection Type: Item(s)
Items(s): P20_DELETE_ID <—- your hidden page item
True Action #3: Execute PL/SQL Code
delete from jsd_notes where id = :P20_DELETE_ID;
Items to Submit: P20_DELETE_ID <—- your hidden page item
True Action #4: Refresh
Selection Type: Region
Region: Notifications <—- your report region
And that should do it 🙂
