Parameters are a great way to customize your Caspio Bridge apps.
A parameter consists of a name surrounded by “[@” and “]”. Parameters are replaced dynamically with other values when your DataPage loads. For example, you can replace [@First_Name] with "Fred" (whenever Fred is the current user).
Values can be passed to parameters from:
- Your source table or view (including the authentication table)
- Another DataPage
- A URL query string
There are many ways you can use parameters to customize your DataPages.
Use parameters internally
You can use parameters within your DataPages to access data in your tables. For example, you can access authentication table data to make customized messages for your end-user.
Pass parameters externally
You can pass parameters from one DataPage to another. This eliminates the need to re-enter the same data and allows you to create multipage web forms.
Advanced parameter usage
You can also pass parameters to third party applications or reference parameters for use in scripting.
