[SOLVED] Pass a variable from Fex to HTML file and catch it in JavaScript
Hi,

I was calling HTML from Fex using
-
-HTMLFORM path
and was able to catch variable using !IBI.AMP.VARIBLE.

To use this variable, i was storing it as hidden control value.

Is there an other way to use this variable use directly in JavaScript.

Thanks in advance.

You can just assign it to a Javascript variable within <script> tags, like this minimal example:
<script type="text/javascript">
    var variable = '!IBI.AMP.VARIABLE;';
</script>

Just use the format !IBI.AMP.VARIABLE_NAME;

Make sure that you use a semicolon at the end, not a period as you have.

  
-SET &MYVAR = &MYVAR.(FIND COUNTRY IN CAR).SELECT A COUNTRY.;

TABLE FILE CAR 
SUM SALES
BY COUNTRY
BY CAR 
WHERE COUNTRY EQ &MYVAR.QUOTEDSTRING;
N TABLE HOLD AS REPORT1 FORMAT HTMTABLE
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOPAGE
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
INCLUDE=IBFS:/FILE/IBI_HTML_DIR/javaassist/intl/EN/combine_templates/ENWarm.sty,$
ENDSTYLE
END

-RUN

-HTMLFORM BEGIN NOEVAL
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge">
    <title>!IBI.AMP.MYVAR;</title>
    <script>
        var myVar = '!IBI.AMP.MYVAR;';
        alert('The IBI variable passed to JS is: ' + myVar);
    </script>  
</head>
<body>
    <h2>
        Cars for country: !IBI.AMP.MYVAR;
    </h2> 
    <div id="report1">
        !IBI.FIL.REPORT1;
    </div>
</body>
</html>
-HTMLFORM END
