Get current web item property value in Javascrpt currentState.getParameter

Hello Experts,

I am using BI 7.1. In the WAD I am using the new feature from EHP1 to add a custom item to the contet menu. I have it working well. However, I would like to make it more dynamic. I have added options to the context menu to allow the user to "Display Repeated Text" or "Hide Repeated Text". This was accomplished with 2 Script Items. However, this creates 2 items in the context menu. I would like to make it one dynamic menu item.

My idea is to get the current value of the ANALYSIS_ITEM parameter REPEATED_TEXTS_DISPLAYED inside the Javascript code. If the current value is "X" I will switch it to " ". If it is currently blank, I would switch it to "X". Then I will be able to have just ONE context menu entry that toggles between the states.

I see there is a command currentState.getParameter that SAP provides but I cannot get the syntax to work. Does anyone have any sample code that uses this command?

Also, once I get the current value, what is the syntax to do the IF/ELSE logic in Javascript? (If value = X .... Else....).

Thanks for help!!!
