Show/hide Component X when a Table has zero records

Below I’ll demonstrate how to use the Tadabase JavaScript API to hide/show a component based on if a Table Component has zero records or not.

In this example, we’ll display an HTML component but only when there are Zero records in the Table.

Step 1
Find the component ID for the component you will be hiding/showing and the Table Component.

In my example, that would be component_3 and component_6

Step 2

Add the following code to the JavaScript section of your page. Make sure you replace component_3 and component_6 with your component IDs.

var tableComponentId = 'component_6';
var htmlComponentId = 'component_3';

TB.render(tableComponentId,function(data){
    if(data.records.length){
        TB.hideComponent(htmlComponentId);
    } else {
        TB.showComponent(htmlComponentId);
    }
});

@Chem will this work on any component? I tried on a chart with the following code, but it does not work.

var tableComponentId = ‘component_10’;
var chartComponentId = ‘component_17’;

TB.render(tableComponentId,function(data){
if(data.records.length){
TB.hideComponent(chartComponentId);
} else {
TB.showComponent(chartComponentId);
}
});

Perhaps it does not work when using filter tabs??

I tested this with a Chart as well, and it works for me. Please feel free to open a ticket so I may take a closer look.
