I have a control and its associated parameter in a launch page. The variable in the focexec associated the launch page parameter now has to have a different name.

How do I rename the parameter in HTML Composer so I do have to do the whole thing over?

Thank you.

In my experience, and I don't want to offend anyone, but HTML Composer seems to be a build-once and don't-touch-it-again GUI tool.

In your case, you might very carefully open the file in the text editor and make a global change, making a backup first.

Ever try changing a single-list box to a double-list box? Can't be done.

In the code for the control, change the value for the NAME attribute, and in the tag, change all occurrences of that variable name. You can search for other occurrences, but that will most likely be all that you need to change. It should be an easy update.
