User case management using the new easy reference system

Hi everybody,

I’m trying to use the user case management to store the number of case
created by a worker.
So I’m storing the number in a user case property, and loading it in the
form to increment it (+1) and saving it back.

The process should be fine, but doesn’t work… As user case manageent is
using the old way to reference properties, I was thinking this could be
related.

Did I miss something in the way ? Am I imagining things ?

Thanks in advance,

Michel

Hi,

Any hints on this ?

Thanks a lot !

Michel,

Your outline sounds like it should work - what behavior are you seeing?
Could you send screenshots of your configuration?

Thanks,
Will

Hi William,

I’m using user case management in the project
space https://www.commcarehq.org/a/mobisan-service-3

Here are some screenshots :
The user case management panel :

The hidden values calculating the counters :

The user case that should be updated :

The change to the case based on a test form :

Actually, the behavior I’m witnessing is just nothing. It seems like the
data are not saved to the case.

Please let me know if I did something wrong…

Thanks in advance,

Michel

Michel,

I would confirm in your test form submissions that the hidden values
intended to be saved to the User Case are set. If the display condition of
these values is false or the calculation returns null then the properties
will not be updated. Glancing through some of your form submission these
values don’t seem to be set.

Cheers,
Will

Hi William,

Thanks again.

But how could that be if the display condition is blank and the calculation
can’t be null (x+1) ?!?
For instance

Michel,

That calculation actually will be null if ‘x’ refers to a question that
isn’t set, as null + 1 = null in XPath world (instead of null being coerced
to ‘0’ as you might expect). Often in calculations like this people will
use the coalesce() function so that they can get a ‘0’ default if the value
hasn’t been set yet, IE:

updated_value = coalesce(old_value, ‘0’)

Will

Ok thanks that was the missing part that I didn’t know about… XPasth is a

Thanks again for your time !
