I want to run this fex
  
TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT MODEL COUNTRY WARRANTY
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
TYPE=DATA, COLUMN=COUNTRY, TARGET='_blank', FOCEXEC=car_lnch(COUNTRY=COUNTRY), $
END

Then, on the resulting report, click the country hyperlink which runs car_lnch.fex. This is an external fex that only contains
  
-HTMLFORM CAR_PAGE

I would like then to have a hidden variable in car_page (&COUNTRY) that is passed to car_cht.fex, which then displays on car_page.htm at runtime.

I'm at the GUI's mercy when creating my html. I've seen examples of how to do this using !IBI.AMP.COUNTRY, but I don't know how to use this in the APP Studio GUI. Can anyone help explain or possibly even show me a different way to do it? Thanks

I don't know if the code for the html or the other fex is needed, but here it is anyway:

The chart fex:
  
-SET &ECHO=ALL;
-? &

GRAPH FILE CAR
SUM CNT.MODEL
WHERE COUNTRY EQ '&COUNTRY.EVAL'
ON GRAPH PCHOLD FORMAT JSCHART
ON GRAPH SET LOOKGRAPH GAUGE1
END



The html code:

Hi.

Please use

I hope this will help you.

Thanks and Regard,

Easiest method?

Change your car_lnch.fex to -
-DEFAULT &COUNTRY = '_FOC_NULL'
-HTMLFORM car_page


Open your HTML page in composer, open the parameters tab and select your "hidden" control (the lozenge shaped one), right click and select "settings". Ensure the "data Type" is set to "static" and click on the "new" icon. Add the value !IBI.AMP.COUNTRY; - not forgetting the exclamation mark and the trailing semi-colon.

Save and run.

Yes, Tony this is your simplest and minimal coding technique for passing Parameter in html page.

I have used JS code for the same.

-HTMLFORM IBFS:/WFC/Repository/Test/check.htm
<script type="text/javascript">
document.getElementById('COUNTRY').value = '!IBI.AMP.COUNTRY;';


Both code are working fine.

I see what Neelima is try do but is wrong because include script in HTML need be -HTMLFORM BEGIN and -HTMLFORM END yes?

Incorrect syntax may cause issue later. I be taught that be bad practice.

Also rely on script to execute at right time onload? Bad try, needs more control. Also no close script tag, very poor if I do that.

Depends.. Is the HTML in an HTML file or a FEX.. If in a FEX, then yes, if in an HTML then no.

Personally, I don't use HTML Composer, I put all my HTML in FEXes and write all my code at an HTML5/CSS3 standard. This way I can pass anything I want using FEX Parameters and still have the greatness of HTML5/CSS3. Unbound to the limits of HTML Composer.
