DisplayWithVariables

From MDrivenWiki

This article describes how to inject or set variable values from url parameters.

DisplayWithVariables is a special verb that will inject variabel values on navigation.

http://<Host>/Turnkey/DisplayWithVariables?view=<ViewName>&id=<RootId>&vNewVar1=value1&vNewVar2=value2

The url above will try and find vNewVar1 variable of type string in <ViewName> - if found assign the value1 to this variable.

The same will happen for vNewVar2.

Note! Both view and id are required. See below for avoiding having to send the id.

DisplayWithVariables has been given a shortcut verb. You can now also use this form:

http://<Host>/DWV?v=<ViewName>&i=<RootId>&vNewVar1=value1

The Id of the root object is sent in with "i", If "i" is omitted null is assumed

These functions now sets the viewmodel variable RawURL to the requested URL including parameters. This makes special processing available to modeled code.

Sometimes when we need a callback url the DWV is practical - but some services cannot handle callbacks with parameters (Docusign Authentication)! So the DWV has now been extended so all these urls will do the same thing:

https://<server>/Turnkey/AngularApp#/SomeView/2!28   Original
https://<server>/DWV?v=SomeView&i=2!28               How it was - and still is
https://<server>/DWV/SomeView/2!28                   New! DWV/view/id
