Passing parameter to HTML from WebFocus

Passing parameter to HTML from WebFocus

Passing parameter to HTML from WebFocus


I am calling a HTML form from my Webfocus/Focus code. I want to pass parameters to the HTML form from the focus code. How do I do it?

Thanks in advance.


RE: Passing parameter to HTML from WebFocus

Give me an example of what you want to do.

RE: Passing parameter to HTML from WebFocus


I have 2 HTML webfocus forms and a webfocus procedure.                          
    I am passing two parameters from the first HTML to the WebFocus Procedure.      
    From the webfocus procedure, I am trying to pass a parameter to the Second      
    HTML webfocus form so that I can get the value of the parameter when I am in the second HTML.
I want to explain my code                                                 
    --Connecting to SQL Server                                                      
    -- Here the &P1 and &P2 are two parameters that I got from the previous HTML    
    EX GOA01_SQL.dbo.spgoa_WF_Report_Fill_TEMP ,                                    
    '2/1/02' ,'2/28/02' ,0, &P1 , &P2, null, 1;                                     
    -- I am calling the second HTML.                                                
    -HTMLFORM WF041803                                                              
    Now I want to pass the parameter $P2 to the above HTML form WF041803. How do    
    I do it? Can you give me the code with respect to the above situation?          

RE: Passing parameter to HTML from WebFocus

Hi Thambaiya,

Seems to me that I would be best not to call the html form with -HTMLFORM WF041803 but with an include:

-INCLUDE app/wf041803

if this works you will surely have the variable there.

Thanks Eva for the reply. I will try and get back to you.
