Warning when upgrading to Spotfire 10

TIBCO has deprecated the JQueryUI Javascript library in the latest Spotfire 10.0 release

TIBCO Community pages show us how to use JQuery properly

Checkbox property control

With this approach you can have a checkbox that can trigger javascript and python scripts:

The calculated value click action toggles a Boolean document property. When this Boolean doc property changes it triggers the iron python script.

The javascript is triggered by adding a click event handler


  1. Calculated value has a custom expression to show a checkbox character marked when document property is on or off:


  2. Calculated value has a script associated to run a python script when clicked. The script changes the state of the document property:

    Document.Properties['booleanDocProp'] = not Document.Properties['booleanDocProp']

  3. Another python script changes the visualization title when document property changes:

    //viz is a Visualization type script parameter
    viz.Title = "Checkbox is ON" if Document.Properties['booleanDocProp'] else "Checkbox is OFF"

  4. Optionally trigger a javascript when the calculated value changes.

      status = cb.innerText=="☒"?"OFF":"ON"
      alert("Checkbox is " + status)
