Learn how to use the Web Application Designer to create templates for interactive maps. By using only two settings, you can provide three levels of interactivity.


In "Set Up the BEx Map for Flawless Function in Five Easy Steps," I showed you how to set up the data for using the BEx Map. Now I'll describe how you can use a couple of settings within the Web Application Designer to create templates that allow maps to interact with various Web items (tables, graphics, etc.) within your Web template on three levels:

  1. Each Web item is autonomous and does not influence, nor is it influenced by, other Web items.
  2. Web items such as tables influence Web items such as maps or vice-versa (uni-directional).
  3. Maps and tables influence each other (bi-directional).
