I have a simple HTML form (FORM1) with edit boxes for "Salesperson ID" (linked to a parameter &SalespersonID) and "Customer Number" (liked to a parameter &CustNum) that I need to pass to another HTML form (FORM2) when the "Add" button is pressed.
When the "Add" button is pushed, it runs the .fex and pulls the "comm_add.html" file exactly as I want it to... but now I need to pass the parameters from the two edit boxes to the "comm_add.html" so those two columns are filled in when the "comm_add.html" HTML page loads.
Does anyone know of a way to pass the parameters from FROM1 to FORM2 using the -HTMLFORM code? Or, FOCEXEC?
I am currently using this method in a different part of my HTML page (FORM1), but this part pulls a .fex file first, then I have a link on one of the columns that passes the parameters through the -HTMLFORM .fex file (call_update_form.fex) and then on to FORM2 using a normal FOCEXEC statement:
Not sure of the syntax for a -HTMLFORM statement to send the parameters... I'm assuming what I have above in the "To:" section is correct syntax-wise?This message has been edited. Last edited by: Deej,
This is your goal. That url is how you pass form variables on web-based systems. The html form specification uses a ? to start the list of variables, an ampersand between each to separate them.
But there's a little complexity here, because your focexec is going to want to resolve that ampersand before the CustNum parameter into an amper variable. You're in a focexec after all. That will hose the text of your url call.
Note the concatenation after SalespersonID. That separates the ampersand from the text that follows. FOCUS will leave it alone. Then you make your call with --
I'm just shooting from the hip so I'm sure there's a few errors hiding in what I show above, but that's the concept. You're hand-assembling a Method=Get html form call on the url line, which WebFOCUS is more than happy to take and pull amper variables out of.

I gave your suggestion a shot this morning and I've tried as many variations of your &URL_CALL that I can think of... even putting the actual parameter values into the -SET line.
Everything I've tried gives me the exact same error:
