Hello Hans-Rudolf,

Do you know if the 'dynamic_options' attribute also works for control elements 
other then select menu's?
For example I want to present the user a set of checkboxes that correspond to 
column names from a file, could I use something like a loop that either 
iterates on data received from the 'dynamics_option' function or from a meta 
attribute?


I don't quite follow your question.....you can also use it in combinations with "<pages>": In one of our cases, we dynamically read the contents of a directory, the the user can select a sub-directory, and the on the second page, the content of the selected sub-directory is presented (again, read on the fly). Similarly, you can read the header of a file and present it.


Regards, Hans

To get a bit further off topic, I made a new tabular datatype that has a 
meta-attribute for storing column names, but I can't use them in my XML files.. 
Any ideas would be welcome!

Regards,

Marcel

we use the "dynamic_options" attribute, eg:



   <inputs>
      <param name="foo" type="select" label="what"
           help="Use tickboxes to select "
           display="radio"
           dynamic_options="ds_fooOptions()"/>
    </inputs>
    <outputs>
      <data format="fasta" name="output" label="more foo" />

    </outputs>
    <code file="extra_code_for_foo_list.py" />
     <help>
     </help>

   </tool>


and then we have a little python script ("extra_code_for_foo_list.py")
with the "ds_fooOptions" function, eg


def ds_fooOptions():
      """List available foos as tuples of (displayName,value)"""
      foos =<whatever python code is required to generate the tuples
      return foos



I hope this helps, Hans

Hi Dannon,

Sorry that I didn't explain well....  I have a local database with
certain information and I would like to dynamically populate a Galaxy
tool select menu with the results of a SQL statement.  Is this
possible?

best,
Leandro

Leandro,

Could you elaborate on what you're trying to do, perhaps what database data 
you're referring to?
